    The principles of sequence stratigraphy and applications to exploration and production | 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 6 hours daily teaching sessions over 5 days

    Sequence stratigraphy is the understanding of the depositional stratal units’ progression through time. This course will outline the principles of sequence stratigraphy by explaining the framework of major depositional and erosional surfaces bounding succession of strata. As well as describe the geometry that successive contemporaneous strata have following their accumulation and their relationship to relative sea level.  The participant will gain an understanding of the importance of sequence stratigraphy to the success of exploration and production in both clastic and carbonate fields.

    The objective of the course is to understand the complex nomenclature and thus the principles of sequence stratigraphy. The participant will gain an understanding of the relationships between tectonics, eustacy and climate on the sedimentary record and be able to subdivide the sediments into genetic packages and define their bounding surfaces
