WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers who want to learn the method of sequence (and seismic) stratigraphy for correlation, facies prediction, and the delineation of stratigraphic traps.

COURSE CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES:
This workshop presents the concepts and practical applications of sequence stratigraphy for petroleum exploration and production. All concepts are illustrated with field examples of seismic, well-log, core, and outcrop data. In-class exercises emphasize the recognition of sequence stratigraphic surfaces and systems tracts on well-log cross-sections, seismic lines, and outcrop profiles. The points of agreement and difference between the various sequence stratigraphic approaches (models) are discussed, and guidelines are provided for a standardized process-based workflow of sequence stratigraphic analysis. This enables the practitioner to eliminate nomenclatural or methodological confusions, and apply sequence stratigraphy effectively for facies predictions in exploration and production.
