Turbidite Petroleum Geology

A 5-day short course in a classroom with theory and hands-on practice

starts: 07/11 10:30 AM

Deep water depositional systems provide one of the main exploration targets globally, and will continue to remain so for a long time. Petroleum companies spend 100’s of million to billions of dollars searching for and developing this type of reservoir, so there is a need for geoscientists with a background in deepwater settings. During the past few years, and up to today, there is a growing body of public information on deep-water depositional systems; this course presents the latest information, in addition to unpublished studies of this very important type of oil and gas reservoir, worldwide. The class will be a combination of lectures, with hands-on practice.

Lecture and Discussions Topics:

• Deep water transport and depositional processes
• Architectural elements
• Geological, geophysical and production performance
• Stacking patterns of deep-water architectural elements
• Well logs and borehole image characteristics and interpretations
• Seismic interpretations of deep-water deposits
• High resolution biostratigraphy
• Basics of geological modeling of deep water reservoirs
• The use of outcrops and analogs
