Course Objectives

Subsurface geologic maps are the most important and widely used document 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.

During the exploration process (and for that matter development process as well) understanding of the subsurface geometry, incorporating both structural and stratigraphic framework, is essential to understanding the 4D development of potential reservoirs. Subsurface maps represent the cornerstone of data presentation and information transfer in oil & gas exploration & development, whether well log based, seismic based, or both. We focus here on the fundamental principles and methodologies of accurately conveying critical data and information via subsurface mapping.
Course is practically based, including integrating multiple datasets, quick-look and advanced techniques for critically analyzing/reviewing key maps (including your own and those of others), and benefits or drawbacks of modern computing.
