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.

Course content includes:

  • Historical development of sequence stratigraphy
  • Methods and workflow of sequence stratigraphic analysis
  • Fundamental concepts of sequence stratigraphy
  • Sequence stratigraphic surfaces
  • Systems tracts
  • Sequences and sequence models
  • Time attributes of stratigraphic surfaces
  • Hierarchy of sequences and sequence boundaries
  • Applications to all depositional systems
