Although the North Sea is a mature basin, the amount of available infrastructure provides an opportunity for high-value projects still to be delivered. Our ability to find hydrocarbons is as good as it ever was, but we are finding less commercial-sized discoveries.  North Sea operators need to continue to add value by delivering on exploration promises volumetrically, lowering appraisal and development costs and maximising recovery.

Coastal, Deltaic and Shallow Marine Clastic Reservoir Characterisation

Distance Learning
November 9 – 12
Instructors: Stuart Archer, Gary Nichols, Ronald Steel

A better understanding of clastic successions in coastal, deltaic and shallow marine settings can lead to improved exploration risking of reservoir presence and quality, reservoir appraisal and development.
