Basic Geochemistry for Explorationists

Business Context
Correct assessment, prediction and correlation of source rocks and associated hydrocarbons of a given petroleum system make it easier to discover new oil and gas accumulations faster and at relatively lower costs. Although addressing principally the role of the geochemist as a competent member of basin analysis or prospect generation team, the course also gives insights on how applications of geochemical inputs add value to reservoir development and production strategies.

Who should attend
Geologists and geophysicists involved in basin analysis and prospects generation. E&P professionals, especially those at early stages of their career.

Content of the program
Overview of Formation, Expulsion, Migration, Accumulation & Alteration of Petroleum in the subsurface

- The Petroleum System Approach
- Evaluation of Organic Geochemical Analytical Data from Rocks and Oil
- Characterization of Hydrocarbon Charge Systems
- Construction of Geochemical Logs
- Hydrocarbon-Generative Windows
- Biomarker Technology
- Rock/Rock, Rock/Oil and Oil/Oil Correlations
- Paleoreconstructions by Biomarkers
- Evaluation of Oil Migration Pathways
- Gas Geochemistry

Learning methods and tools
the course will impart skills in presentation, evaluation, and interpretation of organic geochemical analytical data. Participants will learn how to map organic richness, oil/gas kitchens and migration pathways in a given lease/basin. Tuition shall be by lectures, case studies and exercises and will be geared towards development of practical competency. A comprehensive course manual will be given to each participant.
