This course will introduce students to the basic principles used in the study of Basin Analysis and Petroleum System. This will include a focus on the processes that influence the formation of sedimentary basins and their Importance in Hydrocarbon Exploration, as well as focusing on the Types of Basins related to Plate Margin. Special emphasis will also be placed on the Sedimentary basin mapping that is used to make tectonic and sedimentary interpretations and importance of major sedimentary basin.
The course emphasizes the practical geological applications of basin analysis studies to petroleum exploration. This course takes the trainee up to just below the level of full play fairway and petroleum systems analysis. The course will concentrate on the practical uses of integrated data-sets and how to apply these tools for basin analysis.
