Who Should Attend

Geologist and engineers interested in developing a deeper understanding of deepwater reservoirs.


  • Application of sequence stratigraphic concepts to improve prediction of spatial and temporal variations in sand body architecture.
  • Application key multi-disciplinary techniques and workflows necessary for successful characterization of deepwater sand bodies.
  • Understand the potential sub-seismic controls on sand body heterogeneity.

Course Content

This field trip will focus on the deepwater channel and sheet dominated outcrops exposed along the southern California coastline. These exceptional deepwater outcrops provide a superb opportunity to study the architecture and facies associations of deepwater systems and has applications to both conventional reservoir types (e.g. Wilcox, Miocene GoM, and offshore West Africa).
