This field and classroom-based reservoir geology and modeling course covers applied techniques for reservoir geocellular modeling. The course focuses on teaching participants novel and practical methods to build realistic models of fluvial and deltaic sediment body architecture, demonstrated using Petrel software.
Petrel is used by participants to integrate core and well log data in a series of deterministic model exercises. The results are compared with other traditional Petrel modeling techniques and each is then evaluated against outcrop reality in order to determine which techniques are the most suitable for analogous subsurface reservoir modeling studies.
The course follows the typical workflow of a sub-surface 3-D modeling study and is aimed at making a series of realistic predictive models of reservoir geometry and architecture using detailed knowledge of sedimentology and sequence stratigraphic concepts.
This course blends lectures, modeling exercises, and field trips to sites in Grand Junction, Colorado and Green River, Utah.
Note: Course fees include lodging, meals, and transportation upon arrival in Grand Junction. Participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from Grand Junction, Colorado before and after the course.

The physical demands for this workshop are moderate. The field sites visited include national monuments, cliff line exposures and roadside stops in the high plains desert of western Colorado and eastern Utah at altitudes of 1500-2000m. In October the weather is generally sunny with early morning temperatures of 15°C and afternoon temperatures 30°C+, and relative humidity rarely exceeding 15%. The terrain is generally flat with one 2 km hike having a maximum elevation change of 100m. Transport is by vehicles on a variety of black-top and loose surface roads.
