About this Training Course
The course aims at improving the conceptual geological understanding of the presence and quality distribution of potential reservoir systems. The training material is derived from a variety of geological settings and comprises a mix of petroleum geology case histories and textbook material including seismic, log, core and outcrop data.
What this course will cover:
- Resolution, dimensionality and integration of different types of geological data.
- Understand stratigraphic surfaces and hierarchy.
- Depositional sequences and systems tracts.
- Stratigraphic diagrams.
- Deltaic depositional systems and reservoirs.
- Deep Water depositional systems and reservoirs.
- Alluvial depositional systems and reservoirs.
- PoroPerm systems.
- Carbonate depositional systems and reservoirs.
- Regional seismic line seismo-stratigraphic interpretation.
- Stratigraphic traps.
- Case histories – China, Madagascar, Egypt, NW Borneo, Niger Delta and the North Sea.
By attending this training, you will be able to acquire the following:
- Sound depositional geology concepts underpinning the evaluation of reservoir geometry and quality distribution.
- Increased evaluation skills when assessing gross reservoir and reservoir quality distribution, based on the analysis of seismic, log, core and outcrop.
- Awareness of the interplay between structural deformation and depositional architecture in clastic reservoir settings.
Exploration and Development Geoscientists
A structured course based on presentations, individual and team exercises and discussions. Input from delegates via team discussions of team exercises are an important learning element.
