From Bordeaux to Spain this training course presents estuarine, deltaic, and coastal marine reservoirs in modern and ancient environments.
This training presents the reservoirs that deposited in modern and ancient fluvial, estuarine and deltaic environments, and includes an applied exercise of production geology (data base: fluvial and estuarine reservoirs of a Cretaceous oil field).
This course is open to any geoscientist with a basic knowledge of geology, and any participant at bachelor or master level.
It has been specially designed for direct application by exploration and production geologists / geophysicists, working on shallow water reservoirs, ranging from fluvial, estuarine, to shore face deposits. Reservoir engineers in charge of modelling and producing these reservoirs should be interested also.
This field trip is a unique opportunity to:
The aims of this training are to examine:
Learning-by-doing, based on extensive exercises during the field trip.
The teaching material is composed of field guide books, power point presentations, poster sessions (before and after each field stop), core descriptions (high-quality cores, preserved in epoxy), very high resolution seismic lines (Seistec & Sparker), and Cretaceous oil field data (core pictures, well logs correlation panel).
Each participant is required to provide a yearly medical certificate before attending this field course. Participants must be in good health and physical conditions to attend.
Attendees must also wear adapted shoes (suitable for sandy and wet shore, and stony ground) and bring clothing for hot day time temperatures (sun hat, sun glasses, etc.).
