Seismic Stratigraphy

Purpose of the course:

  • Teach principles of stratigraphic interpretation of seismic data on basin and field scale
  • Link seismic expression to the stratigraphic evolution in various basin types
  • Demonstrate the application of seismic stratigraphy to prospectivity evaluation of sedimentary basins
  • Build-up seismic stratigraphic interpretation skills via a multitude of exercises, based on data from many different areas.
  • Demonstrate applicability of seismic stratigraphy to field scale reservoir analysis

 The program is flexible and can be adjusted to client requirements.
