Faculty:Engineering
Department: Petroleum and Mining
Type of the workshop: National workshop
The workshop in brief:

The petroleum system of the Akri-Bijeel oil field shows that the Palaeogene formations such as the Kolosh Formation seem to be immature. However, the Jurassic–Lower Cretaceous source rocks such as those from the Chia Gara, Naokelekan, and Sargelu formations are thermally mature and within the main oil window because their vitrinite reflectance (Ro%) values are >0.55%. The Triassic Kurra Chine and Geli Khana formations are thought to be in the high maturity stage with Ro values ≥1.3% and within the wet and dry gas windows, whereas the older formations are either within the dry gas zone or completely generated hydrocarbon stage and depleted after the hydrocarbons were expelled with subsequent migration to the reservoir rock of the structural traps.

Number of participants: More than 15 participants (Mainly from the Engineering Faculty)

Date and time:  March 31, 2021 at 15:00.
Place: Tishk International University, Main Building, Engineering Faculty, Room # 201.

Session topics: 

First session: PETROLEUM SYSTEM MODELING OF AKRI-BIJEEL OIL FIELD, NORTHERN IRAQ: INSIGHTS FROM ID BASIN MODELING.

Second session: VOLUMETRIC CALCULATION OF GENERATED HYDROCARBON FROM THE SARGELU FORMATION IN KURDISTAN REGION, IRAQ.

Presenters names and affiliations:

The presenter was Dr. Rzger Abdulkarim Abdula who is currently a lecturer at Soran University and a part-time lecturer at the Tishk International University, Petroleum and Mining Engineering Department. Dr. Rzger has a long time of experience in the field of Petroleum Geology with many publications in that area.

Outcome of the workshop:

The participants of the workshop will be:

  1. able to define the main elements of petroleum system in the Akri-Bijeel Oilfield.
  2. able to identify and understand the different processes of petroleum system within Akri-Bijeel Oilfield.
  3. able to understand the volumetric calculation of generated hydrocarbon.
  4. able to understand the relationship between geology and petroleum engineering.
