Course spotlight - new for 2023 - field courses
N358a: Fine-Grained Carbonate Reservoirs
The course will help participants develop a detailed understanding of chalk depositional processes, facies, diagenetic processes and products, and how these are controlled by primary productivity, sea level, local tectonics and other extrinsic factors (e.g. Milankovitch cyclicity). This provides a firm basis for understanding parameters that control reservoir quality in chalk depositional systems, and is applicable throughout the E&P life cycle.

N577a: Outcrop Analogues for CO2 Storage
Participants on this field-class will gain an understanding of how outcrops along the Devon and Dorset coast can be applied as analogues for the geology of some major CCS projects including Hynet (Hamilton), Endurance, Acorn/Goldeneye, and East Mey.

N575a: From Sub-Seismic Faults to Rift Basins: Exploration, Appraisal, and Production Insights
This course integrates field observations from the active rift system in the Gulf of Corinth directly with subsurface understanding and uncertainty across exploration, appraisal, and production workflows. Central to this is a consideration of the spatial and temporal evolution of normal faults and associated sedimentary systems, and how this is critical across the range of sub-seismic, reservoir, basin, and regional scales.

N576a: Reservoir Modelling and the Application of Outcrop Analogues
The course will use outcrop analogues from eastern Utah to describe workflows for better, facies-based reservoir modelling and illustrate why this matters with subsurface case studies. The course will visit classic outcrop sections, many of which have well logs and cores behind the cliffs allowing us to close the gap between outcrop and subsurface data. The concepts will be illustrated with reservoir models built from the outcrops. Virtual outcrops will also be available to enhance the understanding and integrate modern analogues.

N574a: Submarine Fan Architecture from the Upper Slope to the Distal Basin Floor: Implications for Reservoir Distribution and Development
A central theme of the course will be an exploration of the links between sedimentological processes and facies distributions within the seismic-scale depositional architecture of these submarine fans. The outcrops have been the focus of two decades of research and as such, the concepts presented are cutting-edge, and the scale of the systems visited means learnings can be exportable.

N579a: Understanding Faults and Fault Rupture – Applications to Fluid Trapping, Pressure Containment, and Induced Seismicity for Hydrocarbons and CCS
This course provides an analysis-level treatment of fault geometry, characterization of trap effectiveness, and assessment of rupture hazard with application to hydrocarbon exploration, reservoir development and management, fluid pressure containment analysis for CCS, and induced seismicity hazard assessment.
