|Development Geology - DG|
|Prospect and Play Assessment - PPA|
|Basin Analysis Workshop: An Integrated Approach - BA|
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): John Pigott
Basin analysis, whether for conventional or unconventional resource play analysis, demands an integrated approach from explorationists. It is both inappropriate and misleading to suggest that the tectonic-thermal-sedimentologic evolution of any one basin is an established fact, or even that all basins submit to the same simple and equivocal models. Therefore, this five-day course does not passively present an inventory of basins of the world. Instead, this workshop provides the theory, methods, and active practice for participants to develop and optimize their own individual basin evaluation and modeling modus operandi. Incorporated as practical problems for workshop analysis and substantial team discussion are case histories and new findings from throughout the world utilizing geologic, geophysical, and geochemical data sets. In addition, students construct and interpret their own 1D and 2D basin models using BASINMOD, an industry standard of basin modeling software. One personal computer is provided at additional cost for each participant.
When this course is presented as an in-house two-week format, it builds upon the previous week's material with the added integration of petrophysics and seismic stratigraphy to a more in-depth evaluation of a variety of international plays.
"Great, enthusiastic instructor." - Participant, United States
"I really liked the project at the end that pulled it together for me. I really liked the exercises - it kept me engaged and helped me understand the content." - Geoscientist, Houston
Geoscientists, especially those in New Ventures or in Asset Evaluation, who require a non-superficial but practical application of an integrated variety of state-of-the-art geological/geochemical/geophysical tools for the regional to local evaluation of conventional and unconventional resource plays in sedimentary basins.

SUMMARY: THE PETROLEUM SYSTEM AS PRAXIS
DR. JOHN D. PIGOTT is an internationally recognized energy expert with more than 25 years' experience in worldwide hydrocarbon exploration-exploitation. He has been an Advisor to Foreign Energy Ministries, an Exploration Consultation for Oil Companies Worldwide, and a University Professor. He has worked in many different areas including concession design, corporate management evaluation and reorganization, regulator advisement and technical advisement. He integrated geological and geophysical data into predictive, comprehensive basin models for hydrocarbon exploration on 5 continents. He designed and implemented geologically targeted 2D-3D seismic acquisition, processing, and interpretation for field development in South East Asia, North Sea, Central America, and the Gulf Coast. He received a BS in Geology, a BA in Zoology (cum laude) and an MA in Geology from The University of Texas and a PhD in Geology from Northwestern University.
