E-Symposium: Fluvial Stratigraphy

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

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?

Fluvial Stratigraphy, taught by Dr. John Holbrook, 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:

  • reservoir geometry
  • connectivity
  • net/gross sand
  • compartmentalization
  • permeability

October 22, 2009
2:00 pm (Central Time)
Duration: 1 hour for the “live” event, one day independent study

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

Who Should Attend?

This e-symposium is ideal for individuals and organizations involved in the exploration for and development of reservoirs in discontinuous clastics.


Member: $75.00 • Nonmember $95.00
(E-Symposium only)
Registration for the E-Symposium and the Expanded package for CEU credit is $100 for AAPG members, and $145 for non-members.
