    Sequence Stratigraphy Applied to Petroleum Exploration & Production

    This course is dealing with concepts and applications of sequence stratigraphy for petroleum exploration and production. Facies analysis in different depositional regimes will be interpreted within exploration and production framework. The different approaches of sequence stratigraphy will be discussed. Sequence stratigraphy applications in petroleum systems will be highlighted in terms of source, reservoir and trap distribution. Exercises will assist the understanding of sequence stratigraphic surfaces, systems tracts and depositional sequences based on well log cross-sections and seismic lines.

    • Historical development of sequence stratigraphy
    • Other types of stratigraphy: chronostratigraphy, biostratigraphy, event stratigraphy.
    • Methods of sequence stratigraphic analysis: outcrop, core, well logs and seismic data
    • Workflow of sequence stratigraphic analysis
    • Accommodation and shoreline shift. Relative sea-level changes; transgressions; forced regressions; normal regressions
    • Parasequences

    • Sequence stratigraphic surfaces: subaerial unconformity, correlative conformity, basal surface of forced regression, regressive surface of marine erosion; maximum regressive surface, maximum flooding surface, transgressive surface of erosion, flooding surface, drowning unconformity
    • Systems tracts: highstand, falling stage, lowstand and transgressive
    • Types of stratigraphic sequence:
          • Depositional sequences
          • Genetic stratigraphic sequences
          • Transgressive-regressive sequences
    • Stratal geometry and carbonate factories

    • Hierarchy of sedimentary cycles
    • Cyclo and event stratigraphy
    • Time attributes of straigraphic surfaces
    • Sequence models of fluvial and deltaic systems

    • Sequence models of:
          • Coastal to shallow-marine.
          • Deep-water clastic systems.
    • Sequence stratigraphic analysis of carbonate systems

    • Sequence models of shallow- and deep-water carbonate systems
    • Applications to sequence stratigraphic systems:
          • Marine carbonate source rocks
          • Case studies in sequence stratigraphic and 3D reservoir architecture
