Exploring the Subsurface. Part 1. Interview with Dr. Jen Russel-Houston

Posted: Nov. 12, 2008

In this discussion, Osum’s geosciences manager, Dr. Jen Russel-Houston explains the difference between clastics and carbonates, describing the distinct types of pores that typically exist within these two types of sedimentary rocks.

She goes on to explain how geologists “delineate” or characterize reservoirs in order to better understand what is there, how much is there and how best to get it out of the ground. While geologists can learn a lot about what is below ground from core samples and seismic, they must extrapolate from the relatively small amounts of hard data to accurately model an entire reservoir.
