Overview

This well established and regarded course has been presented across the world, most recently to Chevron and to the American
Association of Petroleum Geologists. The objective of the course is to educate delegates in the regional controls on petroleum
occurrence in West Africa, such that they can then effectively concentrate their own resources in the regions of greatest prospectivity and in their acquired acreage. The course is presented in two parts, the first concentrating on the tectonic, climatic, thermal and paleogeographic development of the region and the second on how these factors control the petroleum systems of individual basins, including recent discoveries. Lectures are interspersed with discussions and exercises. The database on which much of the course is compiled is also provided in digital form.

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

● Learn how the regional tectonostratigraphic framework of West Africa controls patterns of exploration success and
failure
● Access and understand databases on regional tectonics, source to sink systems, heat flow, geothermal gradient
(these will be delivered as a complimentary part of the course.)
● Learn what controls success and failure in pre-salt carbonate and post-salt turbidite plays
● Understand the significance of conjugate margin analogues, e.g. Liza
● Review the results and significance of key recent wells , e.g. Brulpadda
