Deep-Water Siliciclastic Reservoirs, California

5-10 June 2015
  |  
Palo Alto, California, United States

 

Who Should Attend
Exploration and development geologists, geophysicists, log analysts, engineers, and managers working with deep-water reservoir systems in exploration and production settings. The field seminar will benefit all audiences, from experts to those unfamiliar with deep-water systems.
Objectives

Upon completion of this field seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the spectrum of deep-water siliciclastic facies developed across the full range of deep-water environments, from upper slope to basin plain
  • Understand the processes by which deep-water siliciclastic reservoirs are formed, and how to recognize them in core and in the field
  • Appreciate the origins and nature of heterogeneity in deep-water reservoir facies
  • Use deep-water facies in a predictive manner, while recognizing pitfalls and limitations
Course Content

This six-day field seminar is designed to provide participants with an appreciation of the broad range of deep-water reservoir facies, the mechanisms by which they were deposited, their predictive attributes, their reservoir heterogeneity and their stratigraphic architecture. The field school emulates a voyage downslope in a deep-water sedimentary system, from submarine canyon head to mouth, to submarine fan valley, to outer fan, to basin plain, using many of the most outstanding deep-water facies outcrops California has to offer. The field seminar formed the basis for the AAPG Hedberg Conference in 2000.

The field seminar is designed to give participants an understanding of deep-water sedimentary processes and products, as well as a powerful visual impression of the scale and architecture of the full spectrum of deep-water deposits.
