Area of Study :

Expand the scope of knowledge of the petroleum engineer to include the importance Environment of Deposition. This should include Origin and classification of sedimentary rocks - Weathering – Erosion -Residual deposits and soils. It also includes the Carbonate deposits: their composition and classification -Siliciclastic deposits: their composition and classification.

For further information :

Depositional Systems

Analysis and interpretation of seismic, Sea floor image, well logs (including borehole image logs), Core and outcrop characteristics of the component elements of deep water reservoirs and emphasizes internal architecture as related to reservoir performance. Geologic control on reservoir equality, new concepts in understanding transport and depositional processes, geologic modeling and deepwater petroleum systems.
