Petrophysical Characterization of Carbonate Reservoir Systems

A Panel on Petrophysical Characterization of Carbonate Reservoir Systems
as part of the 3rd Annual International Conference on Geology
5-8 June 2017, Athens, Greece
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of  Sciences

The Natural & Formal Sciences Division of ATINER organizes A Panel on Petrophysical Characterization of Carbonate Reservoir Systems, 5-8 June 2017, Athens, Greece as part of the 3rd Annual International Conference on Geology  sponsored by the Athens Journal of Sciences.

Carbonate reservoir systems are key targets relatively to exploration oil & gas fields. It is necessary to characterize their properties at different scales (system geometry, diagenesis, physical properties, permeability) ,and in 3D dimension. This characterization is done by the integration of data provided by different subsurface analytical tools which are often in line with the latest technological developments: FMI, well-log acquisition and interpretation, petrophysical analysis etc.

The aim of this panel is to present the new techniques and advances made in petrophysics to face the challenge of carbonate reservoir characterization that can be used in reservoir development and management decisions.

Fee structure information is available on

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A Greek night of entertainment with dinner, a special one-day cruise to selected Greek islands, an archaeological tour of Athens and a one-day visit to Delphi. Details of the social program are available here.

Please submit an abstract (email only) to:, using the abstract submission form by 10 April 2017  to: Mr. Ahmed Rashed, Senior Geologist, Cairo University, Petrophysics Section Head at Gemsa Petroleum Company (GEMPETCO), Egypt and Petrophysicist Consultant, Egypt.

Please include: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Current Position, Institutional Affiliation, an email address and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Decisions will be reached within four weeks of your submission.

If your submission is accepted, you will receive information on registration deadlines and paper submission requirements. If you want to participate without presenting a paper, i.e. organize a session-panel, chair a session, review papers to be included in the conference proceedings or books, contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email  to

The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) was established in 1995 as an independent academic association and its mission is to act as a forum, where academics and researchers – from all over the world –  can meet in Athens in order to exchange ideas on their research and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into seven Divisions and 37 Units.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to:
