Introduction to Seismic Sequence Stratigraphy
Location: Houston, Tx
Dates: Nov. 04-06, 2019
About the course
When properly applied, seismic stratigraphy provides a powerful foundation for geo-history analysis, helping describe a basin's evolution and the resulting effects upon its spatial and temporal variation in hydrocarbon potential. Seismic stratigraphy chronostratigraphically constrains both the sedimentological and fault-mechanical stratigraphy of a basin.
Geophysicists, geologists, explorationists and managers who are interested in an introduction or review of the theory and application of contemporary seismic stratigraphic techniques to exploration.
You will learn
Apply geophysical fundamentals to uncovering the geological information embedded within seismic
Understand the premises behind the Vail seismic sequence paradigm
Construct and interpret chronostratigraphic charts, sea level curves, and seismic facies maps
Interpret clastic and carbonate depositional system responses to allocyclic and autocyclic processes and the effects upon reservoir architecture and seal potential
Systematically reconstruct a basin's geohistory which provides the critical foundation for its petroleum system analysis and effective exploration
