Our ability to predict reservoir presence or map net reservoir in clastic depositional systems is dependent on our understanding of the depositional geometries of the various depositional systems and the variation of patterns within those systems. The processes associated with sediment delivery and sediment dispersal is the fundamental control on the architectural geometry of a depositional system. The processes associated with the interplay between sediment input and accommodation space are the fundamental controls on the lateral and vertical stacking patterns within that geometry.

The geometry of the depositional system is similar regardless of the depositional location or scale. As such, the patterns within the geometries are also similar, and, therefore, predictable. This is a powerful concept that the interpreter can use in predicting depositional geometries and patterns. Whether the reservoir being studied was deposited on land or on a submarine fan, or whether it is 100’s of kilometers in scale or a kilometer, the geometry of the deposit is similar. Therefore, interpreters need only become familiar with the basic geometries of clastic depositional systems and the patterns that occur within those geometries.

Modern and outcrop analogs will be used, along with subsurface examples to provide the interpreter with a sound understanding of the reservoir distribution and quality, both laterally and vertically of the clastic depositional systems most commonly encountered as oil and gas reservoirs. The course is exercise-oriented and taught in PowerPoint format. A course manual is provided. The exercises in this course are designed to give you a strong working knowledge of the many depositional settings you are likely to encounter in your career. They are aimed at helping you to learn how to recognize them from well logs, and how to map them.
