10 December, 2020 Tulsa Oklahoma United States Virtual

Deepwater Processes and Deposits

8-10 December 2020
  |  
Virtual Event

 

Who Should Attend
Geoscientists, Geophysicists, Engineers, and Managers working on deep-water sediments, whether in exploration, appraisal, development or production.
Objectives

The course is aimed at geologists, geophysicists, engineers, and managers working in areas dominated by deep water depositional processes and deposits. Through a combination of lectures and case studies, the participants are exposed to many aspects of these systems with emphasis on predicting, mapping and quantifying deep water reservoirs.

Course Content

Course will be held via Zoom: 8–10 December 2020, 8:00 am–12:00 pm (CDT)

The lecture content provides a summary of the fundamentals of deep marine systems. The principal goal of the course is to provide subsurface interpreters with a methodology and hands on experience in seismic, logs, and core interpretation of deep-water deposits. 

The course is intended to generate instructive discussion among experienced professionals, moderated and guided by the tutor. Exercises will be assigned each day to reinforce the lectures and class participants will have until the following morning to complete exercises. Results will be reviewed by participants and instructor prior to the next morning’s lecture. Instructor will be available informally to answer questions throughout the day. Final course day exercises will be reviewed in a one-hour block of time on following the last day of lecture.
