The course aims develop practical geological skills applicable to the hydrocarbons industry, embracing the subdisciplines of clastic and carbonate sedimentology, stratigraphy, and diagenesis; it will show how sedimentological and stratigraphic knowledge is crucial in both exploration and development activities, and is fundamental in making predictive models. It will impart a practical knowledge of depositional environments which form hydrocarbon reservoirs, linking these together using the techniques of sequence stratigraphy as applied to siliciclastic and carbonate settings. The origin and effects of reservoir fluids and subsequent diagenesis will also be covered.
