An essential overview of E&P deep water plays, worldwide.
This course is designed to learn to interpret seismic reflection profiles in deep water settings, with high or low angle normal faults, strike-slip or compressional faults , areas of passive margins with over pressured shale or salt or fold and thrust belt regions. The course will help seismic interpreters for exploration or development projects to increase their skills and feel more comfortable interpreting in passive margins and other deep-water settings.
The main objective of this course is to learn how to interpret seismic reflection profiles in Deep water regions.
Recognize the type of basin in each Deep-water settings and their related petroleum system elements.
Learn the structure and type of passive margins from rifting stage to post rift units as seen in seismic sections.
Learn how to identify seaward dipping reflectors, rifted to hyperextended domains and recognize their exploration potential.
Be familiar with the current and future plays to explore in deep water settings.
This course consist of class room lectures followed by practical seismic interpretation exercises. Exercises will follow each topic lecture so attendees can retain what they have learned each day.
Initially a worldwide overview on plate tectonics, folded belts and basins, including basin classification will take place, focusing in the settings where Deep-water plays occur.
After each lecture on a specific structural setting or structural style will be followed by a session of practical seismic exercises.
Attendees will actively participate showing their seismic interpretation and those will be discussed in the class with all the group.
No specific requirement for this course that can take place in any meeting room with validated HSE characteristics, in your company premises or elsewhere.
Three days is the ideal duration of this course even though if requested can de compressed in two days doing less seismic exercises or extended two four days with more and detailed seismic interpretation exercises and extra-lectures.
