This field course is designed for geoscientists and engineers exploring and developing plays in mixed carbonate-siliciclastic systems and has relevance to those working in the Permian Basin. At the end of this course, participants should have improved abilities to distinguish depositional facies and play elements based on seismic features, stratal geometries, sequence stratigraphy, diagenetic changes impacting reservoir quality, and depositional models. Subsurface data from the Permian Basin, including seismic, well-logs and cores, will be used to establish a sequence stratigraphic framework for the basin, with emphasis in the prediction of play elements presence and quality, both for conventional and unconventional resources, including discussions on production behavior and strategies.

Designed for

Geologists, geophysicists, and petroleum engineers working on deep water reservoirs from exploration to production.
