Peter Gutteridge is a Consultant Sedimentologist and Director with Cambridge Carbonates Ltd which he co-founded in 1990. There he worked on almost all productive carbonate hydrocarbon systems worldwide ranging in age since the Pre-Cambrian and consulted for and conducted carbonate exploration and reservoir studies for various majors and national oil companies including BG Exploration, Murphy Oil, Kuwait Oil Company, JOGMEC, Pemex and Wintershall.
• Over 25 years of international experience in carbonate systems exploration and delivery of trainings specializing in carbonate sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy
• Regional knowledge in Mediterranean, Middle East, Mexican and SE Asia carbonate reservoirs
• Professional affiliations in AAPG, SPE and IAS
• Selected client list include BG Exploration, Murphy Oil, Kuwait Oil Company, JOGMEC, Pemex and Wintershall
His career started out with Britoil in 1983 where he worked on the North Sea and acquired the basic skills and experience to be a petroleum geologist for about 2 years before he returned to academia to continue his research on Dinantian carbonates and teach all aspects of carbonate sedimentology, stratigraphy and petroleum geology. Peter has key experience in Palaeozoic carbonates and evaporite systems and is also a skilled interpreter of karst breccia and fracture systems in carbonates.
He graduated with a Bsc in Geological Sciences from University of Leeds and a Ph.D in Carbonate Sedimentology from the University of Manchester.
Peter Gutteridge has just recently completed a study and report named:
South East Asian Tertiary Carbonate Systems and Reservoir Development: An Up to Date Synthesis.
And its aims are to:
• Review the existing and future hydrocarbon potential of SE Asia
• Demonstrates the possibility of adding additional hydrocarbon reserves in various basins by the development of new plays and more effective production from existing reservoirs.
• Present an up-to-date review of Tertiary carbonate depositional systems in the light of recent developments in carbonate sedimentology, diagenesis and sequence stratigraphy.
