At present we offer only one fieldtrip, based in the Cretaceous fluvio-deltaic deposits of Book Cliffs, Utah. This course comprises an intensive 7 day course covering the practical aspects of how to efficiently incorporate outcrop data of spectacularly-exposed wave-dominated deltaic and fluvial/tidal deposits into 3-D models. The course uses a series of Petrel-based exercises to demonstrate typical production-scale static reservoir modelling problems which are solved using knowledge gathered from the continuous outcrops of the Book Cliffs. In this way participants learn to make direct use of their outcrop observations to solve real sub-surface modelling problems.

By building models and then using exceptional outcrops to test the model validity, participants will improve their: awareness of 3-D scale and visualization of the sub-surface; ability to build more realistic and more integrated static and dynamic models; ability to reduce uncertainty, narrowing the range by only generating geologically realistic models.

Other courses, following a similar format to that outlined below, include East Kentucky, USA – fluvial-dominated deltas, and County Clare, Ireland – shallow-water turbidite systems. Please contact us for further information.
