Given a set of sequence boundaries, we want to predict lithologies within each sequence with seismically-derived information and begin to consider where potential reservoir rocks offer us a drilling target. Our goal is to predict where we have potential reservoirs capped by potential seals.
Divide the class time into three (3) segments: a review of the previous exercise, the lecture, and an introduction to the exercise presented here. The review of the previous exercise has five (5) slides and will take ~10 minutes to discuss. The lecture material contains eighteen (18) slides, and will take ~35 minutes to explain. The introduction to the exercise here has five (5) slides, and will take ~15 minutes to explain.
At the end of this lesson, students should be able to:
This course, based on teaching material from Dr. Fred Schroeder (formerly of Exxon/ExxonMobil), reflects on the geology and geophysics basics for the petroleum industry. General geology and basic geophysics are not required, but helpful with the material.
