North Sea Petroleum Geology: Integrated Classroom, Core Store and Field Analogue on Reservoir Deposystems - NSPG
The course is a G&G focused course and keeps to the subject areas of regional geology, structural evolution, depositional environments, play types and specific field case studies for the taught component. An overview of each (clastic) depositional environment is given, followed by related field or reservoir case studies. After the first three days of classroom overview and case study lectures, we go to the core store to examine seven wells: students have the chance to briefly describe sections from each well, to add to their understanding of the environments. Three days in the field in Northumberland we can then investigate most to the environments studied.
Geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, drillers, anyone involved in subsurface reservoir characterization in the North Sea area.
You will Learn:
Participants will learn how to:
- Understand the petroleum systems, play styles and history of oil and gas exploration and production in the North Sea
- Realize the structural evolution of the North Sea and its impact on hydrocarbon generation
- Recognize fluvial, aeolian, paralic, and marine clastic and carbonate reservoirs at core, on wire line and on seismic
- Know related field geology as an overview of reservoir style in the North Sea area
