About the Event
We are delighted to offer an exciting and engaging training workshop to help generalist geoscientists understand how hydrocarbons are trapped. The participants will use various hands-on exercises to hone their skills. The skills will be used to play with a broad set of real-world case studies. Participants will finish with sound structural geologic thinking but, most notably, an appreciation for stratigraphic trapping.
Oil and gas exploration relies on calculating the probability of finding the "right" volume of hydrocarbons before drilling. While technology has a massive impact on this process, risks always need human intervention, in many ways imagining "what could be". Unfortunately, we also bring a range of cognitive biases that can blight an exploration program.
In this training course, students will learn to use a set of easy-to-understand, readily repeatable tools that can be deployed across a whole business unit to help provide clear metrics for predrill column height predictions. A critical soft skill that participants will understand is seeing when they might be wrong with their interpretations or predictions—learning to test whether they are working with a pessimistic or optimistic scenario.
A thorough sequence stratigraphic study is essential to any fault seal analysis and, coincidently, any assessment of stratigraphic trapping! Through the training, students will be introduced to practical techniques to define seals and then consider flow units (reservoirs and thief zones).
Running through the training, we will run a prospect-risking project; using a set of real prospects, students will work up their prospects and pitch to each other. We will adjust the prospect risks as new skills are learned through the training.
