Given a set of sequence boundaries, we want to predict lithologies within each sequence with seismically-derived information and begin to consider where potential reservoir rocks offer us a drilling target. Our goal is to predict where we have potential reservoirs capped by potential seals.
Divide the class time into three (3) segments: a review of the previous exercise, the lecture, and an introduction to the exercise presented here. The review of the previous exercise has five (5) slides and will take ~10 minutes to discuss. The lecture material contains eighteen (18) slides, and will take ~35 minutes to explain. The introduction to the exercise here has five (5) slides, and will take ~15 minutes to explain.
At the end of this lesson, students should be able to:
- Define the terms depositional sequence, seismic facies unit, and seismic facies analysis
- List the components of a seismic sequence analysis
- Define and describe the ABC method
