Integrated Sequence Stratigraphy for Carbonates


The course is aimed at petroleum geologists, explorationists, petrophysicists, geophysicistsand engineers who are involved with exploration in carbonate provinces or the development ofcarbonate reservoirs. Attendees should have previous knowledge of carbonate sedimentology.


- Basic concepts of carbonate deposition
- Chronostratigraphy, seismic stratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy, controls on sequence development, accommodation space, parasequences and carbonate cycles, identification of surfaces, types of bounding discontinuities
- Sequences and systems tracts: sequence boundaries and their significance, sequences in time and space, orders of cyclicity
- Integrating well data: Key data types for sequence identification, typical work flow
- Seismic Stratigraphy: Identification of boundaries and stacking patterns in carbonate sequences, attribute analysis and 'stratal slices'
- Mixed carbonate siliciclastic sequences, mixed carbonate evaporate sequences
- Systems tracts and petroleum exploration

Learning Objectives

- Understand the concepts of carbonate sequence stratigraphy at different scales
- Be able to apply sequence stratigraphic interpretation for well and seismic data in carbonate environments
- Be able to use sequence stratigraphic approach to predict seal and reservoir quality
