Who Should Attend

The course is designed for geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers, and graduate students with basic knowledge on sedimentology, depositional environments, and sequence stratigraphy.


Sequence stratigraphy is based on the sedimentary response to changes in sediment supply and accommodation. Participants will be provided with the basics concepts and applications of this methodology. Participants will learn how to recognize genetically linked successions, as well as to correlate and predict those successions with emphasis on field scale in a regional basinwide context. This course provides the geoscientist with a powerful predictive tool for integrated basin analysis, shelf to basin correlation, and reservoir (both conventional and unconventional) heterogeneity at the well-to-well and field scales.

Course Content

This course aims at providing attendees with an overview of concepts and applications of sequence stratigraphy applied to petroleum exploration and production. The course focuses in high-resolution vertical and spatial data. Concepts will be illustrated with examples of core, well-log, outcrop data integrated with 2-D and 3-D seismic, particularly from South and Central America producing basins (e.g., Magallanes, Neuquén, Maranon, Llanos basins). In-class exercises emphasize the recognition and interpretation of sequence stratigraphic surfaces and stratal patterns on, well-log cross-sections, cores, outcrop profiles and seismic lines. The various sequence stratigraphic models are presented and discussed, highlighting points of agreement and filtering nomenclatural confusion and overinterpretation. The ultimate aim is to provide the practitioner with a standardized process-based workflow of sequence stratigraphic analysis that can be applied effectively for reservoir and source rock prediction at different scales.
