Reservoir Engineering > Depositional Systems & Reservoir Distribution

About this Training Course 

The course aims at improving the conceptual geological understanding of the presence and quality distribution of potential reservoir systems. The training material is derived from a variety of geological settings and comprises a mix of petroleum geology case histories and textbook material including seismic, log, core and outcrop data.

What this course will cover:


  • Resolution, dimensionality and integration of different types of geological data.
  • Understand stratigraphic surfaces and hierarchy.
  • Depositional sequences and systems tracts.
  • Stratigraphic diagrams.
  • Deltaic depositional systems and reservoirs.
  • Deep Water depositional systems and reservoirs.
  • Alluvial depositional systems and reservoirs.
  • PoroPerm systems.
  • Carbonate depositional systems and reservoirs.
  • Regional seismic line seismo-stratigraphic interpretation.
  • Stratigraphic traps.
  • Case histories – China, Madagascar, Egypt, NW Borneo, Niger Delta and the North Sea.

By attending this training, you will be able to acquire the following:

  • Sound depositional geology concepts underpinning the evaluation of reservoir geometry and quality distribution.
  • Increased evaluation skills when assessing gross reservoir and reservoir quality distribution, based on the analysis of seismic, log, core and outcrop.
  • Awareness of the interplay between structural deformation and depositional architecture in clastic reservoir settings.

Exploration and Development Geoscientists

A structured course based on presentations, individual and team exercises and discussions. Input from delegates via team discussions of team exercises are an important learning element.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.
