Why Choose this Training Course?

This 5-day intensive PetroKnowledge Shallow and Deep Marine Sedimentation training course is designed for petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists or engineers who use core, borehole images, log data, core data and production data to produce or understand facies produced in a shallow and deep marine sedimentary environment. The training course aims to develop a G&G workflow which exploits a variety of geological data essential to produce an accurate clastic marine reservoir model.

Upon successfully attending this PetroKnowledge training course, the participants will be able to utilize all forms of data used to build a deep and shallow marine geological model. Ranging from mud logs, rock cuttings, thin-sections, core, borehole images, log data, seismic and geological analogues. The participant will build and interpret facies logs, to create detailed facies maps deposited within a shallow coastal and deep-sea slope setting. Participants will be able, despite their different working sectors, to deal with deep marine sedimentary models, interpret facies logs and understands varying sand body architecture and geometries. As well as learning about the different tools needed to acquire the most accurate data to derive accurate facies models.

This training course will highlight:
