RPS Nautilus Stratigraphy Courses

RMAG members get 20% off selected courses

RMAG is excited to offer its members discounted access to upcoming RPS Nautilus Training courses!

Under the new partnership between RPS Nautilus and RMAG, RPS Nautilus is offering a discount to RMAG members on two upcoming sequence stratigraphy courses taught virtually through RPS's Learning Hub learning management system. See below for details on each course.

D517: Well Log Sequence Stratigraphy for Exploration and Production

InstructorVitor Abreu

Dates: Sept. 1-4, 2020 (3 hour sessions daily 8am CST time start)

Regular Price: $2160 USD; RMAG member 20% discount: $1,728

Sequence Stratigraphy is a method developed to support geoscientists in the geologic interpretation of subsurface data, with the objective of predicting play elements presence and quality before drilling. The method can be applied to cores and well logs in all depositional environments. The course will review the basic terminology of surfaces, systems tracts, sequence sets and stratigraphic hierarchy, and their definitions. The method will be described and applied for use to interpret subsurface data in nonmarine, shallow marine and deep marine depositional settings. The emphasis will be in the recognition and mapping of play elements from exploration to production scales.

This Distance Learning course will be scheduled as a series of two- to three-hour long webinars over a one-week period (equivalent to a two-day classroom course), comprising a mixture of lectures, discussions, case studies, and worked examples to be completed by participants during and between webinar sessions.

D518: Seismic Sequence Stratigraphy for Exploration and Production

Instructor: Vitor Abreu

Dates: Sept. 8-11, 2020 (3 hour sessions daily 8am CST time start)

Regular Price: $2160 USD; RMAG member 20% discount: $1,728

Sequence Stratigraphy is a method developed to support geoscientists in the geologic interpretation of subsurface data, with the objective of predicting play elements presence and quality before drilling. The method can be applied to 2D and 3D, seismic lines in all depositional environments. The course will review the basic terminology of surfaces, systems tracts, sequence sets and stratigraphic hierarchy, and their definitions. The method will be described and applied to datasets to later be used to interpret subsurface data in non-marine, shallow marine and deep marine depositional settings. The emphasis will be in the recognition and mapping of play elements from exploration to production scales.

This Distance Learning course will be scheduled as a series of two- to three-hour long webinars over a one-week period (equivalent to a two-day classroom course), comprising a mixture of lectures, discussions, case studies, and worked examples to be completed by participants during and between webinar sessions.

About the Instructor:

Vitor Abreu has 28 years of experience in the oil industry in petroleum exploration, development production and research, with a proven record in evaluating, risking and/or drilling in 22 countries and 31 sedimentary basins in the 6 continents. His areas of expertise include projects in exploration, development and production of deep water reservoirs, regional studies to define the petroleum system elements and key plays in frontier exploration, tectono-stratigraphic evolution of basins in different tectonic settings, maturing opportunities to drillable status, and play to prospect risking assessment. His experience in development and production includes several field studies in different depositional environments, with high-resolution stratigraphic interpretation integrated to engineering data to define reservoir connectivity and main baffles and barriers for effective field development plans. On research, Vitor is considered one of the world leaders on reservoir characterization of deep water systems, proposing new deep water models with strong impact in development and production.

Vitor has been an Adjunct Professor at Rice University since 1999, where he took responsibility for the course on Sequence Stratigraphy after Peter Vail’s retirement. He was the recipient of the Jules Braunstein Memorial Award (best poster presenta-tion, 2002 AAPG Annual Meeting) and was appointed AAPG’s inaugural international Distinguished Instructor in 2006. He is the current President-Elect of SEPM and has been organizing and chairing technical sessions at annual meetings for both AAPG and SEPM. More than 1000 students globally have taken his short course on “Sequence Stratigraphy for Graduate Students” since 2000. This course has been taught at annual meetings, international meetings, universities, and companies around the world. Vitor is the chief editor of SEPM’s “Sequence Stratigraphy of Siliciclastic Systems”, which has sold more than 3000 copies since publication in 2010.
