Based on popular demand from industry professionals who wish to get a general overview of the most common reservoir types that occur in coastal plain and shallow marine settings, we have collected a series of spectacular outcrops for you to visit.
The field-trip is structured such that we will begin on the coastal plain where you will get to see high-sinuosity channels and point bars. We then take you to the sequence boundary that separates the terrestrial coastal plain from the shorefaces below. After spending time on shorefaces and wave dominated deltas we will move on to tide and river dominated deltas. The last part of the trip focuses on transgressive systems such as estuaries, associated tidal bars, inlets, and barrier islands.
Participants will spend time collecting data and plotting Gamma Ray logs through these reservoir types such that they can identify similar environments of deposition in their own log data.
This field trip is geared mainly for shallow marine clastic reservoirs. If you would like to focus more on fluvial systems click here.
The course is designed for geoscientists and reservoir engineers who primarily focus on fluvial and shallow marine successions, especially those involved in building or updating geomodels. Whether your task involves a simple well-correlation across tidal systems, or the input of fluvial channel dimensions into a geomodel this course will benefit you in several ways.
The arrival and departure airport for this course is the Grand Junction Regional Airport. The course will be offered between September 20-24th, 2021, and has an all-inclusive cost of $3500/person. This price includes hotels, meals, transportation, fuel, permits, passes, a field guidebook, and course materials.
