Course description

Compressional and Transpressional Structural Styles - CPST

Compressional and transpressional structures provide some of the world's largest known hydrocarbon reservoirs and remain major frontier plays. 3D seismic has revolutionized structural mapping, but making the most realistic geologic interpretation of these structures requires an ability to recognize and exploit the fundamental forms.

This course presents outcrop, subsurface, seismic sections, and model analogs that provide structural interpretation in a wide range of compressional and transpressional environments.

Interpretations are validated by restoration and by comparison to balanced models. This course covers the latest restoration techniques and the use of the predictive kinematic models for thrust-fold belts.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Geologists, geophysicists, engineers, and managers responsible for the interpretation and drilling of compressive and transpressive structures.
