2 days Short Course

Geologic trapping of buoyant fluids: the role of structural geology

Peter Vrolijk & Franco Corona, Exxon Mobil Upstream Research

       20 - 21 February 2012


Trapping of oil, gas, and other buoyant fluids requires a geologic container that is often formed through structural processes. Moreover, structural geologists are particularly adept at conceptualizing the complex 3D structures that often develop. In this course we will focus on the critical elements necessary for trapping fluids in the subsurface and will emphasize the variety of geometric elements and the techniques to evaluate those geometries with common subsurface data types.
