About this Training

Fold-and-thrust belts contain major hydrocarbon accumulations in complex structural traps. Hydrocarbon exploration in many onshore fold-and-thrust belts is commonly very difficult because of rugged topography and complex structures. Seismic interpretation in these terrains could be arduous due to the generally poor quality of seismic data. The correct application of thrust tectonics concepts and the relationships between folding and thrusting (e.g., thrust-related folding) become a powerful tool helping the interpreter in deciphering and reconstructing the complex subsurface geometries of structural traps.

This course provides an overview on how the use of the concepts of structural geology can be applied to make better structural interpretations. The principles behind the construction of balanced cross-sections are discussed. The participants will learn theoretical and technical approaches to seismic structural interpretation of compressional structures illustrated by numerous examples from around the world and experienced by hands-on exercises.
