Overview

This course aims at providing participants with the ‘regional picture' that controls the complex play systems of the Central and South Atlantic using largely unpublished material gathered from the authors own regional work and attendance at scores of conferences on the region, many organised by himself. By presenting these regional models during the course and in a detailed manual full of palaeotectonic- paleogeographic maps, stratigraphic charts and play cross-sections, the course aims to save participants the equivalents of hundreds of thousands of dollars on mantime conducting regional research, so that they can then concentrate on their own ventures and prospects. Specific attention is paid to the pre-salt plays of the South Atlantic, and the complex interrelated tectonic, depositional and geochemical models that are now being unravelled for these plays. Recent well results are reviewed and explained. The lectures are interspersed with numerous case studies analysing each of the key regional controls, some of which will be run as group discussions and guided exercises.

Who Should Attend

Geologists and geophysicists or exploration managers that are involved in the assessment of new exploration opportunities, acreage and prospects in the Central or South Atlantic. This is an advanced level course and a basic knowledge of petroleum geology and in particular of petroleum systems is required.

  • Exploration & Development Department
  • Geologists
  • Geophysicists
  • Exploration Managers
  • Geoscientists
  • Petroleum Engineers

Key Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be provided with the regional picture controlling prospectivity in pre-salt, rift and post-rift/salt plays, enabling them to concentrate in their own work on local and prospect specific issues
  • Participants will learn how the tectonic and heat flow history of the region, and in particular processes preceding and during continental break-up, control the prospectivity of the South and Central Atlantic
  • Specific attention is given to the complex controls on pre-salt plays on both sides of the Atlantic.
  • Participants will learn how to screen for both pre-salt clastic and carbonate plays and avoid regions with downgrading influences such as early high heat flow and gas generation.
  • For post-salt plays the key objective is to learn how to screen for thick effective reservoirs though the understanding of regional sediment/reservoir supply and integrate this with seismic attribute analysis.
  • Participants will learn how to apply ‘data room checklists' to rapidly assess opportunities presented to them in this region
