Basin Analysis & Habitat of Hydrocarbons in Sedimentary Basins

Goal:

To evaluate the sedimentary basin and determine its petroleum potential.

Objectives:

This course identifies the important elements essential to analyze the potential of the basin qualitatively & quantitatively.

  • It also develops the understanding of the exploration plays expected in the basin.

  • The classification of the basins and its potential for oil and gas discoveries.

  • It provides the systematic techniques of basin analysis to evaluate & develop the oil and gas exploration program of the basins.

  • It also evaluates & improves modeling the different basins and enhances evaluation of new exploration plays and prospects.

Outlines:

  • Review of exploration concepts.
  • Geological situations where petroleum accumulations are possible.
  • Geodynamics & geothermics of basin evolution.
  • The impact of plate tectonics on basin formation.
  • Different basin types.
  • Depositional systems analysis.
  • Sequence strategraphic analysis.
  • Subsidence analysis.
  • Geohistorical analysis.
  • Tectonic processes involved in the development of sedimentary basins.
  • The role of sedimentary basins in forming oil and gas.
  • Use of geochemistry in regional evaluation & basin analysis.
