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 DionisosFlow™,
  • predict reservoir distribution and geometry, and assess efficiently the stratigraphic architecture of a sedimentary basin.

Ways & 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.
