• Class and Course

    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.
