Applied Sequence Stratigraphy Course


United States of America (USA)

22 - 26 Apr, 2019  5 days

Follow Event


USD 5,500

Several companies teach sequence stratigraphic courses. We would argue that each company has a different version. The key-word here is ‘applied.’ That means the course is not academic, we will not bore you with details of trying to figure out whether the cyclicity in your basin is from climate-change, tectonics etc, we won’t spend ages drawing Wheeler Diagrams for your basin, and we certainly won’t be drawing coastal onlap curves.
The objective of this course is to help you find more oil and gas using well-logs, core and seismic data. This is a prerequisite course for others listed here. Topics include the recognition of key sequence stratigraphic surfaces and systems tracts in seismic, well-logs, core and outcrop. Exercises during the course will teach participants how to chronocorrelate wells using wireline logs and core.
Unlike other course providers we believe 5-days are too short for participants to master both sequence and seismic stratigraphy, which is why we split these topics into two courses.
Please be aware that this is NOT a seismic stratigraphy course and we will spend minimum time on seismic data. Most sequence stratigraphy courses taught by other training providers try to cram-in sequence analysis on logs, core and seismic + seismic facies analysis into 5-days which we feel is a disservice to participants.

Who Should Attend

Geologists, Geophysicists, Petrophysicists, and Engineers who wish to develop a better understanding of the factors that control distribution, reservoir connectivity and compartmentalization of hydrocarbon reservoirs

Course Outcomes
At the end of the course participants will have a greater understanding of and have developed the following key attributes:

  • Identification if key sequence stratigraphic surfaces in core, logs and seismic
  • Delineating systems tracts
  • Controls of relative sea-level stand on the distribution of deepwater sands
  • Differences between sequence stratigraphy in clastics vs carbonates
  • Source, reservoir and seal prediction
  • Better correlation techniques using well logs

Key Course Highlights

  • Performing sequence analysis on core in shallow marine siliciclastics
  • Identification of key-sequence stratigraphic surfaces in sub-surface data from deepwater exploration basins
  • Exercise on identification of lithofacies and stacking pattern in a carbonate-ramp parasequences
  • Sequence stratigraphy of deepwater petroleum systems: effects of relative sea-level fall on sediment gravity flows
  • Carbonate sequence stratigraphy and its control on reservoir distribution and quality, recognition of key surfaces
  • Introduction to sequence biostratigraphy: index fossils including planktonic and benthic foraminifera, calcareous nannoplankton, dinoflagellates, spores and pollen
