Short Course

Mapping and Interpreting Clastic Reservoirs


Mr. Robert Shoup 


2-days (6-7 December 2018) 




10 CPD points


  1. Course Overview

    This course is designed to give geoscientists the knowledge they need to find and delineate clastic reservoirs; even with minimal data. The course blends modern examples, outcrop data, and exercises to provide geoscientists with the understanding of the distribution of reservoir facies within the various clastic depositional systems so that they can reduce exploration risk and improve development efficiencies. 

  2. Course Content
