PhD project: "Jurassic Carbonate reservoir characterisation and evolution along the Atlantic Margin."
Aude has a master degree in geology applied to sedimentary basins from the ENSEGID (Bordeaux, France). She graduated in 2014 and joined the NARG early 2015 with a research subject focused on Jurassic carbonate sedimentology.
Her project is aimed at understanding the controls on stratigraphic development and reservoir distribution of shelf-margin carbonates along the Moroccan Atlantic Margin. This PhD is based on extensive field work in the Agadir-Essaouira Basin and involves data analysis using petrography, sedimentology, biotratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy. This work includes a strong focus on Middle to Late Jurassic carbonate platforms which are proven reservoirs on the conjugate margins of Morocco and Canada, these outcrop provide opportunities to constrain reservoir development and architecture.
