Course description

The course demonstrates the impact of sedimentological factors on clastic reservoir distribution and character as well as the use of facies models and sequence stratigraphy in the interpretation of subsurface datasets (seismic, well log and core). 


Geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers who want to learn the methodology for applying sequence (and seismic) stratigraphy to correlation, facies analysis and the delineation of stratigraphic traps.
