This course examines the evolution of concepts in deep water models, providing the participants with the knowledge and tools to describe and predict deep water reservoirs from exploration through production scales. At the exploration scale, emphasis is placed on understanding the different deep-water settings and their influence on trap styles, reservoir fairways, and chance of success for both plays and prospects. At development/production scales, where recent industry experience is illuminating, both victories and pitfalls of appraising and developing deep water discoveries will be examined. Through real-world examples, participants will create and apply deep water depositional environment interpretations to reservoir performance predictions. Geologic subsurface data (logs, seismic, core, etc.) and analogs (relevant producing fields and modern depositional examples) are integrated with engineering data to produce comprehensive predictive field assessments.
