This excursion is designed to sample a range of clastic depositional environments, including
shallow marine, fluvio-deltaic and aeolian, from a range of localities including classic
Permian, Carboniferous and Jurassic sequences. These deposits showcase a wide range of
depositional processes, ranging from unidirectional and bidirectional to oscillatory and
combined flow bedforms, water-borne and windblown. The overall aims of the excursion
are to observe, describe and interpret the depositional processes and environments, create
appropriate depositional and sequence stratigraphic models, consider the implications for
reservoir quality and sand body architecture and visualise the likely expression of these
sequences in wireline logs and seismic. All of the sequences visited provide analogues to
equivalent strata in the Southern North Sea hydrocarbon province.
This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our courses on Clastic Reservoir
Geology, Fluvial-deltaic Depositional Systems and Integrated Sequence Stratigraphy.
