Description:
Basic considerations about crude oil and gas (geophysical methods, environments in which crue oil and gas appear, porosity, traps). Exercises: determination of structural characteristics if seismic profiles, calculation of porosity). Biosrtratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy in exploration of crude oil and gas ? Exercises: how to use polen, nanoalgae, and forams in reconstruction of environments in which crude oil and gas could be formed. Models of sequence stratigraphy for carbonate platforms - Exercies: Analysis of edimentary space from geophysical profiles.

Learning outcomes:

Knowledge and understanding of the sedimentological properties of reservoir and source rocks and their identification in logs, seismic profiles and cores.
Basic knowledge and understanding of genesis of crude oil and gas and how they are related to tectonic, stratigraphic characteristics of depo- centers.
Basic knowledge of thermal/maturation modeling.
Ability to define source rock facies, palaeoenvironments and geochemical signatures.
Ability to do geochemical evaluation.
