Salt tectonics is the subject of Mark Rowan’s short course to be held April 22-24 in Austin. The course is ideal for those who would like to get started in working with salt structures. Registration is now open. To register, click here.
Who Should Attend
Exploration and production geologists, geophysicists, and managers working in salt basins worldwide who need either an introduction to salt tectonics or an update in this rapidly evolving field.
Our understanding of salt tectonics has advanced significantly in recent years, and this course will help industry geoscientists in understanding and applying the newest concepts, models, and techniques. We will use a combination of seismic data, realistic models, and reconstructed histories to illustrate the varying 3-D geometry and evolution of real salt structures from various salt basins. This is an applied course that will introduce practical tools for seismic interpretation and emphasize the impact of salt on fault and trap geometries, sedimentation, and hydrocarbon maturation and migration. The course will consist of a combination of lectures and workshop exercises.
