About this Training Course 

This course examines different deepwater depositional systems and considers how deepwater process, topography and sediment supply impact on these systems.

The course examines analogue data from turbidite reservoirs and modern turbidite systems. Depositional settings and sequences associated with clastic deepwater systems are reviewed, along with the geological controls on reservoir quality and architecture.

It also examines post-depositional process that can have a major impact on reservoir quality and architecture, and considers this within the context of the petroleum system.

Key learning objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of deepwater depositional systems, how they form and how they are identified using different data sets
  • To recognize how deepwater process and environments impact on reservoir properties, and to be able to predict reservoir quality
  • Interpret turbidite depositional environments using data from core, seismic and wireline logs

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit geologists from exploration and production, geophysicists, reservoir engineers and petrophysicists.
