Doing a good job of identifying valid potential hydrocarbon traps requires creativity and resourcefulness, plus an excellent understanding of what may constitute a trap and where potential spill and leak-points may be.  

Prospect evaluation generally starts with the search for traps. Once a potential trap has been identified, the seal is only given relatively cursory attention in many cases. For trapped hydrocarbons all four main play elements (trap, reservoir, seal and charge) are equally important; after all, if any of these elements are missing no hydrocarbons can be trapped. In this course, trap and seal analysis is discussed together as they are closely linked; after all it may be argued that without a seal, there is no trap.

By attending this course, you will be able to: 
Understanding and identifying spill and potential leak-points of traps
* Theoretical aspects of seals and sealing capacity
* Methods to assess the sealing potential of seals
* Trap identification and analysis in a variety of extensional and in compressional settings
* Unusual traps, such as basement traps
* Sealing mechanisms and reasons of seal failure: permeability seals and hydraulic seals
* Effectiveness of Top and Fault seals
* Dealing with traps with multiple reservoir-seal pairs (in different basin settings)
* Differential leakage of gas versus oil and its role on gas-oil mix in traps
* How to treat trap and seal risks and uncertainty in a technically sound (and pragmatic) way in probabilistic risk and volume analysis tools; also for multiple reservoir-seal pair prospects


Who should attend this course?
The course is designed for experienced explorers, working as geologists, seismic interpreters or as supervisors or team leaders managing exploration teams.
