Deepwater exploration and development present a range of challenges, from working environments, defining prospects, constructing wells, to maintaining production and optimizing recovery. Being able to recognize and characterize a full range of deepwater reservoirs will help to resolve these issues and also account for the amount of success drilling performance and production will achieve in these environments. This field seminar will help to familiarize participants with a better understanding of deepwater reservoir systems and deepwater exploration and production settings. Discovering this valuable information of deepwater reservoirs will offer attendees the knowledge to address challenges in the present and in the future. The field seminar will be taking place, April 11-16, 2014, in Palo Alto, California. For more information on this course: Deep-Water Siliciclastic Reservoirs, California
Who Should Attend
Exploration and development geologists, geophysicists, log analysts, engineers, and managers working with deep-water reservoir systems in exploration and production settings. The field seminar will benefit all audiences, from experts to those unfamiliar with deep-water systems.
Upon completion of this field seminar, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the spectrum of deep-water siliciclastic facies developed across the full range of deep-water environments, from upper slope to basin plain.
- Understand the processes by which deep-water siliciclastic reservoirs are formed, and how to recognize them in core and in the field.
- Appreciate the origins and nature of heterogeneity in deep-water reservoir facies.
- Use deep-water facies in a predictive manner, while recognizing pitfalls and limitations.
This six-day field seminar is designed to provide participants with an appreciation of the broad range of deep-water reservoir facies, the mechanisms by which they were deposited, their predictive attributes, their reservoir heterogeneity and their stratigraphic architecture. The field school emulates a voyage downslope in a deep-water sedimentary system, from submarine canyon head to mouth, to submarine fan valley, to outer fan, to basin plain, using many of the most outstanding deep water facies outcrops California has to offer. The field seminar formed the basis for the AAPG Hedberg Conference in 2000.
The field seminar is designed to give participants an understanding of deep-water sedimentary processes and products, as well as a powerful visual impression of the scale and architecture of the full spectrum of deep-water deposits.
