E-218 - Stratigraphic Modeling: Basin Architecture & Sediment Distribution

  • Junior exploration geoscientists, multidisciplinary-team managers
  • To provide an in-depth and practical understanding of stratigraphic modeling following a comprehensive workflow
Learning Objectives
  • To grasp methodology of sequence stratigraphy and concepts of stratigraphic evolution
  • To model stratigraphic evolution of a basin using the software program Dionisos™
  • To predict reservoir distribution and geometry and assess efficiently the stratigraphic architecture of a sedimentary basin
Ways and means
  • Hands-on training sessions on workstation
  • Use of the software program DIONISOS™
  • Exercises and reports to launch questions and discussions at the end of the course
