Oil production in North America has the last years surged due to the successful exploitation of unconventional low-permeability (tight) light oil reservoirs in North America by multistage hydraulic fractured horizontal wells.

Recent focus on hydrocarbons hosted in muddy fine grained strata, often referred to as shale gas or shale oil, has increased our understanding of these relatively poorly understood depositional systems. This study will focus on the link between bedforms, depositional processes, and stratal architecture, and their relation to the laterally continuous hydrocarbon accumulations hosted within these strata.

Four lectures, of about 45 minutes each, cover grain assemblages and diagenesis (compaction, cementation, organic maturation, and fracturing) in the dominant rocks of the sedimentary record.

The fine-grained sediments and rocks that constitute most of the sedimentary record have received tremendous research attention in the past decade. This talk reviews some of the technologies that have supported these advances and summarizes current knowledge of the diagenetic processes that drive the evolution of bulk rock properties of mud in the subsurface.

The Petroleum Geochemistry Toolkit for Petroleum Exploration and Development 2-day course, is designed to provide the geologist, geophysicist, and engineer with a general understanding of applied petroleum geochemistry and how it can be used in petroleum exploration and development. The petroleum systems analysis examines geological elements and processes that are essential for the petroleum accumulation.

This course is for earth scientists and engineers involved in exploration or production from carbonate rocks. This is an introductory course that assumes no pre-existing knowledge. It moves from basic principles to advanced ideas and case studies that will also help experienced geoscientists with practical aspects of carbonate depositional systems.
