Sequence Stratigraphy of the Late Jurassic Shallow Marine Successions - Analogues and Application to Reservoir Zonation

Monday, April 30, 2018 to Tuesday, May 1, 2018

8:00 a.m. - 6.00 p.m.
Consolação, Portugal

Who Should Attend

Geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers who want to learn the method of sequence stratigraphy for correlation, facies prediction and reservoir zonation.


To practice the method of sequence stratigraphy applied to reservoir zonation and characterization.

About Field Trip

Sequence stratigraphy applied to reservoir scale (i.e., high-resolution) leads to reservoir zonation within a chronostratigraphic framework. This is a crucial step to elaborate 3D geological and flow models that support production development projects and guide reservoir management.

This is a "hands-on" field-trip in which participants will practice the method of sequence stratigraphy through description of vertical sections of outcrops, interpretation of stacking patterns, and identification of sequence stratigraphic surfaces. Field-work will be supported both by drone acquired high-resolution photomosaics and nearby well-log data. Based on the material produced by the participants, chronostratigraphic correlation exercises will enable them to propose a reservoir zonation and to discuss uncertainties related to reservoir spatial distribution, its external geometry, heterogeneities, and connectivity. Moreover, discussion about strategies related to well drilling and design as well as to optimization of hydrocarbons production will be encouraged and makes a vital part of this field trip.


Day 1

Depart from Lisbon at 8:00 a.m. and drive to Consolação village. Participants will be taken to the outcrop to measure and describe vertical sections. Expected arrival at Consolação hotel for lodging: 4:00 p.m. Exercises before dinner (at 8:00 p.m).

Day 2

Exercises at outcrop and hotel meeting room. A discussion on reservoir zonation, its heterogeneities and connectivity, and implications on 3D geological and fluid flow models will take place leading to strategies to optimize hydrocarbons production. Leave at 4:30 p.m. to drive back to Lisbon for arrival at 6:00 p.m.
