Basin Evaluation and Reservoir Engineering

Course Code: BERED

Dates: 17 Mar - 21 Mar | 9 Jun - 13 Jun | 25 Aug - 29 Aug | 6 Oct - 10 Oct | 8 Dec - 12 Dec

Price: $4750

Duration: 1 Week /s

Course Objective
Basin analysis demands an integrated approach from explorationist. The objective of the course is to provide the theory, methods, and practice for participants to develop and optimize their own individual basin evaluation and modelling.

Who should Attend
Geoscientists who require a practical familiarity with the application of a variety of state-of-the-art conventional and unconventional tools of hydrocarbon evaluation to sedimentary basins

Course Overview

  • Introduction to the Petroleum System and Petroleum System Critical

  • Geo-Mechanical fundamentals of basin formation

  • Burial history curve

  • Tectonic subsidence analysis

  • Geo-Thermic: steady state and rifting

  • Organic geochemistry: quantity, quality, and maturity

  • Migration pathways

  • Reservoir-traps-seals and analogs

  • Critical points

  • Basin classification

  • Quantifying uncertainty, minimizing risk, and making decisions

  • Synthesis




  • Learning Goal

  • Ability to systematically assess the evolution of a basin's petroleum system critical through space and time through a non-linear parallel approach integrating geology, geophysics, and geochemistry


  • Determination of the thermal history of a basin and its importance upon source maturity dynamics
