Global Stratigraphic Plays - Deep-Water Reservoirs: Characterization and Risk Assessment

 

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.

This 16-hour, 4-day online 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.

Through real-world examples, participants will create and apply deep water depositional environment interpretations to reservoir performance predictions.

Key topics to be addressed are:

  • Sequence stratigraphy – exploring for deep water reservoirs
  • Deep water reservoir characterization and impact on production
  • Assessment of deep-water system variations: sand-rich, sand-poor, channelized
  • Non-turbidite deposits and their implications to reservoir performance
  • Reservoir mapping for development
  • Pre-drill reservoir prediction and risking
  • Understanding and using relevant engineering data to optimize deep water reservoir performance

The course features 60% Lectures and 40% Workshop exercises.
