E-127 - Stratigraphic Modeling: Basin Architecture & Sediment Distribution

  • Junior exploration geoscientists, multidisciplinary-team managers.
  • This course provides an in-depth and practical understanding of stratigraphic modeling following a comprehensive workflow.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • grasp methodology of sequence stratigraphy and concepts of stratigraphic evolution,
  • model stratigraphic evolution of a basin using the software program Dionisos™,
  • predict reservoir distribution and geometry, and assess efficiently the stratigraphic architecture of a sedimentary basin.
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Hands-on training sessions on workstation.
  • Use of the software program DIONISOSFLOW™ (maximum 2 participants per workstation).
  • Exercises and reports to launch questions and discussions at the end of the course.
