Seismic Stratigraphy

AAPG e-symposia | Est. length: 1hr

   Watch Promo

Deep-water deposits are exploration targets in many basins worldwide. Much has been learned both about the process of deep-water sedimentation as well as the products of these processes from the analysis of 3D seismic data. This course will focus on the seismic stratigraphic and seismic geomorphologic expression of deep-water deposits, including both reservoir and non-reservoir facies.

Turbidites as well as mass transport deposits will be illustrated and models for deposition of both will be discussed. These deposits also will be discussed from within a sequence stratigraphic framework, integrating geologic principles and geophysical observations. We will also address seismic stratigraphic and seismic geomorphologic analytical techniques and workflows.

This course is eligible for CEU credit.

This e-symposium is ideal for geologists and geophysicists, both in industry and academia. Materials covered will be valuable to both explorationists and exploitationists, and anyone looking to "think outside the box" and be more creative in exploration.

Instructor: Henry W. Posamentier is currently a Sr. Consultant Geologist with Chevron Energy Technology Company in Houston, TX. Before joining Chevron, he was Chief Geologist and Distinguished Advisor for Anadarko in The Woodlands, Texas after working several years in their Calgary office. He has previously worked for ARCO in the U.S. and Indonesia, Esso Resources in Canada, and Exxon Production Research Co. His principal expertise is in siliciclastic sequence stratigraphy and depositional systems and he has published widely on these topics. He received his M.A. and Ph.D. in Geology from Syracuse University. In 1971-72, Dr. Posamentier was a Fulbright Fellow to Austria. He has served as a North American AAPG Distinguished Lecturer, as well as several tours as an AAPG International Distinguished Lecturer. Recently (2008), he was awarded the Pettijohn Medal for excellence in sedimentology from the Society for Sedimentary geology (SEPM), and the William Smith Medal (2010) for contributions to applied and economic aspects of geology from the Geological Society of London.

AAPG

Since its founding in 1917, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists has been a pillar of the worldwide scientific community. The original purpose of AAPG, to foster scientific research, to advance the science of geology, to promote technology, and to inspire high professional conduct, still guides the Association today.

AAPG provides publications, conferences, and educational opportunities to geoscientists and disseminates the most current geological information available to the general public.

As the world's premier professional association for explorationists, AAPG is about the science of petroleum geology.

It's also about the people.

AAPG's membership is made up of more than 40,000 members in 129 countries in the upstream energy industry who collaborate – and compete – to provide the means for humankind to thrive.

AAPG provides the network of communications that allow those professionals to succeed.

We invite you to see who we are, what we are about and to contact us for membership information or details about the many services we provide.
