This advanced case-study led course is designed to teach participants a process for rapidly screening frontier basin opportunities with minimal data, with most case studies from African and Atlantic style rifts and passive margins.
Three day modules cover the essentials of basin classification and tectonostratigraphic analysis, the prediction of petroleum system elements (reservoir, source rocks and seals) and the presentation of a workflow with which the prospects of a basin can be rapidly assessed. The most recent world's frontier discoveries are reviewed in their basin context and key elements are recognised that will identify the frontier discoveries of the future. The lectures are interspersed with numerous case studies analysing the regional controls on the main global discoveries of the last decade, some of which will be run as group discussions and guided exercises. This will expand the participants' knowledge bank of key analogues that can be used to identify and risk new plays in their own regions of interest.
Geologists and geophysicists or exploration managers that are involved in the assessment of new exploration opportunities and new country entry, particularly if working on rifts and or passive margins such as Atlantic margin basins. The course contents are on intermediate/advanced level and a basic knowledge of petroleum geology and in particular of petroleum systems is required.
