------------------------------------------------ Course Description:-

This is a hands-on 2 -day course (workshop format) where participants will spend most of their time performing sequence and seismic analysis seismic lines provided by the instructor. The teaching collection of seismic data are text-book examples collected from basins across the globe. Original Exxon models covered in AAPG Memoir 26 will be covered in detail. Participants will also be introduced to the upcoming field of clinoform trajectory analysis. Through lots of exercises by the end of the course everyone should be proficient at sequence analysis on seismic lines and be able to interpret depositional environments and net:gross using seismic facies analysis.

Participants are strongly urged to bring paper copies of their own seismic data to work on, these data will not be shared with anyone and will only be reviewed by the instructor.

A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in this course.

--------------------------------------------------- Who Should Attend:-

Geologists, and Geophysicists that spend most of their time interpreting seismic data on the workstation. Whether you are an early career geoscientist wanting to learn a systematic methodology for seismic interpretation or an experienced professional wanting to learn some of the latest techniques to have emerged in seismic stratigraphy, this is the course for you.

-------------------------------------------- Course Outline:-

Day 1:-

Introduction, calculating seismic frequency and resolution, seismic impedance, pitfalls. Seismic sequence analysis: recognition and meaning of reflection terminations such as onlap, offlap, toplap etc.

Sequence Analysis on seismic lines provided by instructor.

Day 2:-

Seismic facies analysis and how reflection configurations can be used to interpret environments of deposition, risk of reservoir presence and quality, and net:gross. Clinoform trajectory analysis: Bruhn’s Law, clinoform morphology, shelf vs shelf margin-clinoforms, siliciclastic vs carbonate clinoforms.

Seismic Facies Analysis on seismic lines provided by instructor

•Well Log Sequence Stratigraphy for clastic and carbonate reservoirs

•Interpreting environments of deposition using seismic horizon and time slices

-------------------------------------------------- Instructor:-

Ali Jaffri, Ph.D. Dr. Jaffri is the founder of Applied Stratigraphix LLC, has a doctorate in geology, and specializes in sequence stratigraphy. Between consulting projects, full-time positions and internships he has worked on the Williston Basin, the North Sea, Norwegian Sea, Barents Sea, West Africa, Southern Indus Basin, the Pricaspian Basin of Kazakhstan and others.

His doctorate at Colorado State University focused on sequence stratigraphy of mixed carbonate- siliciclastic-evaporite systems of the Williston Basin in the U.S., and modern coastlines in the Middle East. The doctoral work was supplemented with projects with ExxonMobil Research Labs, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Delta Petroleum, and Brigham Oil and Gas. Masters Degree was acquired from a well-known petroleum school in the U.S. (Oklahoma State University), and the thesis focused on mechanical stratigraphy of a fractured carbonate reservoir. Bachelors from the University of Colorado at Boulder involved detailed fieldwork on fluvial stratigraphy.

Over the past few years Dr. Jaffri has trained geoscientists, managers and engineers at Statoil, Wintershall, Kuwait Energy Company, Tullow Oil, VNG Norge, Core Energy, United Energy Pakistan, OGDCL, BP Pakistan, Faeroe Petroleum, Ocean Pakistan Ltd, Pakistan Oilfields Limited and others. He is also an instructor for Schlumberger’s NExT Geoscience training company and leads field-trips in Colorado and Utah, USA as a collaborator with GEOkonsulentene, Norway, 4Dimension, United Arab Emirates and iReservoir, USA.
