Integrated Sequence Stratigraphy Workshop

Audience

Explorationists, geologists, stratigraphers and geophysicists who wish to extend their knowledge through integration of seismic sequence stratigraphy with well log sequence stratigraphy and the application of biostratigraphy to sequence stratigraphy.

Content

  • Introduction - Concepts; eustatic controls; assumptions; definition of key terms.
  • Eustatic controls on depositional stratal patterns – accommodation and equilibrium types; systems tract boundaries
  • Seismic expression of sequence – criteria and approach for picking sequence boundaries
  • Interpretation of seismic reflections in depositional sequences – definition of seismic sequence, seismic facies
  • Sequence and systems tracts – highstand, falling stage, lowstand, transgressive, shelf margin 
  • Sequence expression in well logs - Log characters of parasequences, maximum  flooding surfaces and criteria for picking sequence boundaries
  • Clastic and carbonate depositional environments - Depositional responses to changes in relative sea level
  • Variation on the model: Application and exploration significance 

Learning Objectives

  • Understand sequence stratigraphic concepts and controls
  • Identify systems tracts and stratigraphic sequences from depositional facies, well logs and seismic facies.
  • Construct a sequence stratigraphic model by integrating lithological, biostratigraphical, seismic and well data.
