The objective of this Petroknowledge Stratigraphy online training seminar is to get more out of seismic and well data through the use of sequence and seismic stratigraphy and integrated stratigraphic analysis to further constrain geological models. Ultimately, it can be used to predict and discover more hydrocarbon plays, to improve the estimation of play and prospect risk and to determine what lithology is going to be drilled ahead of the drill bit.
This 5-day interactive Petroknowledge Stratigraphy online training seminar will deal with the fundamentals and practical applications of sequence and seismic stratigraphy. It will include exercises and case histories for some interpretation and workshop discussion.
This Petroknowledge online training seminar will feature:
The History of Sequence Stratigraphy
The Models and Principles of Seismic and Sequence Stratigraphy
Controls on Basin Stratigraphy
Sequence Definition from Wells and Seismic
The Fundamentals of Sequence Stratigraphy in Carbonate Systems
Relative Sea Level Lowstands and Reservoir Development
Sequence Stratigraphy in Lacustrine Environments
Integration of other Stratigraphic Information, Biostratigraphical, Radiometric Dating, Chemostratigraphical

An understanding of the concepts and the application of sequence and seismic stratigraphy in identifying clastic and carbonate hydrocarbon reservoirs and predicting their distribution is critical in optimizing exploration efforts for a company and obtaining the most from seismic and well data that has already been acquired at huge expense. For the organisation, the benefits will include:
Getting the most out of expensively acquired seismic and well data
Prediction of play trends for new acreage acquisition
More accurate assessments of geological risk for prospects
Identification of new plays and new leads and prospects
Development of staff with new oil finding skills that can be applied to ongoing exploration projects immediately
More accurate assessment of the prediction of reservoir presence and effectiveness in both clastic and carbonate plays
More accurate estimations of Expected Monetary Value (EMV) for prospect economic assessments
Developing key interpretation skills in exploration play, lead and prospect generation provides a real personal benefit. The individual will enhance his predictive skills to become the proven oil finder that organisations are looking for. They will also become better at estimating geological risk which is key for accurate prospect portfolio generation. Personal impact includes:
The ability to recognize and integrate sequences identified both from well log and seismic data
Identification of systems tracts, bounding stratal surfaces and key geometries in shelf to basin transects
Upon understanding the above to be able to predict the presence and distribution of clastic and carbonate reservoirs and to identify new plays, leads and prospects
Have improved skills in geological risk assessments
Have improved oil finding skills and better company and professional recognition
