Subsurface Geology (GEO501)
This course is designed to give students a deep understanding of sedimentary reservoir systems, as well as basement, both as primary (hydrocarbon) and secondary reservoirs (e. g., carbon dioxide). The course aims to the ability to interpret reservoir systems, their genesis and development as results of rock emplacement, depositional environments, and tectonic deformation. Moreover, reservoir systems will be set in a sequence stratigraphic context, in order to understand and predict the architectures and facies distributions and variations. The course also covers interpretation and validation (e. g., structural restoration) of faults and salt structures that can modify reservoir systems and control their formation. Also techniques to assess the impact of faults on fluid flow are included.
