Introduction to Seismic Stratigraphy

Course Objective

  • Identify stratigraphic sequences
  • Interpret seismic reflection geometries
  • Relate sequence stratigraphy to basin architecture, relative sea levels and history
  • Build predictive stratigraphic model

Who Can Benefit

  • Geologists, geophysicists
  •  Biostratigraphers and engineers (with some knowledge of geology) needing a fundamental understanding of the principles and applications of sequence stratigraphy

Course content

  • Historical framework
  • Seismic geometries
  • Unconformities
  • Relative sea level
  • Eustasy
  • Para sequences and their stacking patterns
  • Para sequences as a correlation tool
  • Relationship of stratigraphic patterns to changes in subsidence rates as driven by regional and earth scale tectonic processes
  • Cycle hierarchy
  • World-wide cycle chart and its application
  • The sequence stratigraphic model
  • LST sequence boundaries, diagenesis related to unconformities, incised valleys, slope fans, basin floor fans and prograding complexes illustrated by slide presentation and individual exercises
  • TST incised valley fill, two phase sedimentation pattern, source rock and reservoir seal illustrated by slide presentation and individual exercises
  • HST alluvial, deltaic, shoreline complexes and shelf sands illustrated by slide presentation and individual exercises
  • Exploration and production scaled case histories
  • Exploration/production strategies
