This e-symposium is ideal for individuals and organizations involved in the exploration for and development of reservoirs in discontinuous clastics, including those interested in the following areas of research: Modern and ancient river sedimentary processes and fluvial stratigraphy; emphasis on assessing internal vs. external controls on river process and change; Mechanics of sequence deposition; emphasis on discontinuity development.
Have you wondered why developing a fluvial reservoir is so challenging? Have you wondered how and why connectivity exists between lenses? How can you determine the reservoir geometry? This course can help you gain the ability to describe the complex and highly variable reservoirs, which are typified by complex internal heterogeneity. This makes their exploration and production a unique challenge. This e-symposium provides you with the basics of fluvial stratigraphy and helps you use core, seismic, well-log, and outcrop data to develop models to predict the following:
The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).
