Course description

Analysis of Structural Traps in Extensional Settings - ESS

Extensional structures provide some of the world's largest known oil reservoirs and remain one of the major frontier plays of the immediate future, both onshore and, particularly, in deep water offshore. 3D seismic has revolutionized structural mapping. However, the most realistic geologic interpretation of these structures is only as good as our ability to recognize and exploit the fundamental characteristics of the forms that are possible.

This course presents outcrop, subsurface, seismic sections, and model analogs that will provide the starting point for structural interpretation in a wide range of extensional environments. Interpretations are validated by restoration and comparison to balanced models.

 

This course covers the latest restoration techniques and the use of predictive kinematic models appropriate for rifted and other extensional and transtensional areas.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Exploration and development geologists, geophysicists, engineers, and managers responsible for the interpretation and drilling of extensional structures.
