Bruce Ainsworth, Principal Reservoir Geoscientist, Chevron
Sequence stratigraphy based on wireline logs, cores and outcrops is entering its fourth decade of mainstream usage in industry and academia. The technique has proved to be an invaluable tool for improving stratigraphic analyses in clastic shallow marine systems. In this talk we will present a simple quantitative technique to support sequence stratigraphic interpretations. The technique, utilizes two pieces of data that are readily available from every subsurface field or outcrop study; 1) parasequence thickness (T) and 2) parasequence sandstone fraction (SF). The key assumptions are that parasequence thickness can be used as a proxy for accommodation at the time of deposition, and parasequence SF can be used as a proxy for sediment supply. This means that quantitative proxies for rates of accommodation development and sediment supply can be acquired from wireline logs, cores and outcrop data. Vertical trends in parasequence thickness divided by SF (T/SF) approximate trends expected in systems tracts for changes in the ratio of rate of accommodation development to rate of sediment supply (δA/δS). The technique, termed “TSF analysis”, can also be applied at lower-order sequence and composite sequence scales. It provides a quantitative and objective methodology for determining rank and order of sequence stratigraphic surfaces and units. Absolute TSF values can be utilized to determine shoreline, stacked shoreline and shelf margin trajectories. Case studies are presented which demonstrate the robustness of the technique across a range of different data sets. Implications and potential future applications of TSF analyses will also be discussed.

This presentation includes case study examples which illustrate the use of simultaneous inversion of facies and elastic properties within a geological context, made possible by using a geostatistical inversion algorithm in a Bayesian framework.

Gretchen Gillis, Geological Consultant, Aramco Americas
AAPG advances the science of geology, promotes related technology, fosters the spirit of scientific research, disseminates science, inspires high standards of professional conduct, and advances the professional well-being of its members. These core purposes are as important now as they were when AAPG formed in 1917. AAPG is a mainstay of my career because of the geoscientific knowledge, networking, and education and training I have received in more 20 years of actively volunteering and from passively consuming AAPG publications earlier in my career. Recent reflection revealed my actual career drivers – fear of being laid off that has been assuaged by timely career pivots. These career pivots have provided opportunities for building skills and knowledge, and for gaining appreciation for the value of diversity and inclusion in geoscience.

The Mandawa Basin of Tanzania is one of several coastal basins that developed in response to the breakup of Gondwana during the Early Mesozoic. It is underexplored and whilst wells have proven that all the elements of a working petroleum system exist, commercial discoveries remain elusive.
This presentation focuses on the sedimentary rocks of the Kilwa Group deposited between the Early Cretaceous (Albian) to Late Paleogene (Oligocene) Epochs in the Mandawa Basin. Approximately 1500 core samples have been subjected to inductively coupled plasma (ICP) optical emission spectroscopy (OES) and mass spectrometry (MS) analysis, with high-resolution data being acquired for fifty elements. These data have been employed to develop a chemostratigraphic framework for the Kilwa Group and a subset of samples have also been subjected to heavy mineral analysis by Raman spectroscopy and U-Pb geochronology in order to refine the provenance interpretations made from the elemental data.
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.
