A solid base of knowledge of seismic stratigraphy and seismic geomorphology as they apply to deepwater systems can help geoscientists develop a deeper understanding of reservoirs and producing capabilities. Henry Posamentier, Chevron, will present a one-hour live webinar, to be followed by one day’s worth of independent study readings and study questions on April 29, 2010, at 2 pm CDT.
Deep-water deposits are exploration targets in many basins worldwide. Much has been learned both about the process of deep-water sedimentation as well as the products of these processes from the analysis of 3D seismic data. This presentation will focus on the seismic stratigraphic and seismic geomorphologic expression of deep-water deposits, including both reservoir and non-reservoir facies. Turbidites as well as mass transport deposits will be illustrated and models for deposition of both will be discussed. These deposits also will be discussed from within a sequence stratigraphic framework, integrating geologic principles and geophysical observations. Seismic stratigraphic and seismic geomorphologic analytical techniques and workflows will also be addressed in the course of this presentation.
