SEQUENCE STRATIGRAPHY

Discipline: Sequence Stratigraphy (sedimentology, seismic stratigraphy and seismic sequence stratigraphy)
Level: Advance
Duration: 5 days

Instructor: Jean GERARD

Purpose

Sequence stratigraphy is fundamental to all aspects of description, characterization and prediction of reservoirs in the petroleum business. Principles, applications, and integration of stratigraphic information for reservoir description and prediction will be discussed in depth. Through a combination of class lectures, poster sessions and exercises, participants will learn how to conduct stacking pattern analysis based upon facies associations, identification of significant geological surfaces bounding transgressive and regressive cycles. These fundamental analytical procedures will be applied to seismic sequence stratigraphy. Case studies will be presented to illustrate the contribution of detailed seismic interpretation to prospect evaluation and ranking for exploration projects and reservoir delineation for appraisal and production projects. Special emphasis will be given to deepwater depositional systems.

Designed

Both young professional and senior geoscientists (geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers) wanting to develop technical skills in sequence stratigraphy for both exploration and production projects.

You will learn

How to:

  • Use facies associations and do staking pattern analysis
  • Identify transgressive and regressive half cycles
  • Identify correlative geological surfaces
  • Draw depositional profiles
  • Correlate sequences
  • Use meaningful seismic attributes
  • Predict and delineate reservoirs
  • Support exploration team during prospect evaluation and ranking
  • Support appraisal and production teams during field development planning andproduction optimization programs
