This is the most demanded subsurface mapping course in the world. From the newly graduated geoscientist or engineer to the seasoned professional, the course provides the applied, hands-on knowledge required to generate sound subsurface maps. Participants of this course will receive the Applied Subsurface Geological Mapping with Structural Methods 2nd edition textbook (2003) and a lab manual with exercises. Solutions will be provided throughout the course.
Subsurface geologic maps are the most important and widely used documents in petroleum exploration and development. Geoscientists and engineers are expected to understand and be able to efficiently and accurately generate many types of subsurface maps. Nevertheless, many geoscientists have not had sufficient formal training in the fundamental principles and methods that underlie accurately constructed subsurface maps, whether the data source is a seismic interpretation, well log correlation, or both.
This course covers both fundamental and advanced methods of subsurface mapping that have been used by the most proficient exploration and development geoscientists in the industry, as well as an introduction to some of the more recent advances in interpretation. Mapping techniques, examples and exercises for extensional and compressional tectonic settings are the core of the course. Diapiric and strike-slip faulted structures are also discussed. In addition, volumetric mapping is presented as well as some of the numerous pitfalls in reservoir volume determinations using isochore maps.
