    Basin Analysis and Petroleum Systems Modeling | RILS

    This is a Remote Instructor Led Series (RILS) training. The remote classroom delivery is a modality that takes advantage of the instructor led training content, while allowing the same content to be delivered remotely.

    All training sessions will be delivered online with no face-to-face classroom attendance. This class will be delivered in 40h (4 hours daily teaching sessions over 10 days or 8 hours daily teaching sessions over 5 days). 

    The quality of a numeric computer model is highly dependent on the quality of the input data. This 5-day course covers the key aspects of basin analysis and subsequent basin and petroleum systems modeling from input to output. We will discuss basin evolution beginning with plate tectonics, all the way to petroleum generation and migration. We will look at how risks and uncertainties influence our understanding of the petroleum systems within a basin and how we can quantify those uncertainties.

    The aim of this course is to provide the basic geoscience background needed by anyone engaged in Petroleum Systems Modeling. Attendees will learn what kinds of questions to ask, what kind of data is needed to build models and solve particular problems and to apply geological reasoning to quantifying uncertainties.
