Basin and Petroleum Systems Modelling Course
Next online course: 7th - 18th November 2022
The Basin & Petroleum Systems Modelling (BPSM) course is a balanced combination of background theory and hands-on exercises that will equip attendees with the ability to build and critically evaluate BPSMs, from model parameterization and workflows (1D, 2D and 3D), to petroleum systems analysis and basin/prospect de-risking.
This training program is designed for explorationists involved in the development and/or assessment of petroleum systems models. A basic understanding of the geology of sedimentary basins is the only requirement to fully benefit from this course.
The course is divided into the following topics:
- Introduction to BPSM
- Thermal-burial model inputs, constraints and calibration (e.g. temperature and maturity data)
- Overview of sedimentary basin tectonics and geothermics
- Source rock deposition, kerogen organofacies and kinetics
- Introduction to 3-D basin modelling software
- Hydrocarbon generation, expulsion and migration
- Principles and methodologies of risk analysis in BPSM
- Concepts, flowcharts and best practices for 1D, 2D and 3D modelling (theory and hands-on)
The course can be provided in-person at either IGI's office in North Devon, or at a client's office over a period of 5 days.
In addition, we now provide this course through our new online Moodle platform spread over a period of 10 days. Each topic is made up of a series of short lectures (~20 minutes) and other activities that may include a data workshop, field video, quiz or live discussion session, supported by some additional materials such as reference files and access to IGI’s ig.NET information resource.
