CSPG Clastics Exploration School
This course sold out during the 2017 session, register early to secure your spot.
This five-day school has been taught to Calgary, Houston and internationally based geologists and geophysicists for over 30 years and was initially designed as a mandatory course for all junior staff. Over the years it became apparent that more senior G/G (and Engineers) could gain great benefit from re-examining the advances made in facies modeling, traces fossils, sequence stratigraphy and seismic geomorphology. Using a combination of lectures followed by core examination, all clastic depositional settings from the Western Canadian basin that contain hydrocarbons are discussed.
Emphasis will be placed on core description, identifying sedimentary structures, recognizing reservoir facies, sequence boundaries, flooding surfaces and most importantly, thinking geologically. Delegates will be exposed to a vast amount of core (600+ boxes) over 5 days. The ultimate product is the establishment of a robust stratigraphically and facies based exploration model to guide a drilling program. Core correlation and field based exercises with data sets from the Alberta Basin and the international arena will be used to reinforce the concepts. The school concludes with a lecture on the controls of reservoir quality and how they relate to depositional setting and well productivity.
