Semester of Instruction
Autumn. Intensive course.
This is a course with limited capacity.
Objectives and Content
The course is cross-disciplinary and consists of two parts.
The first part covers key subjects within geothermal energy, pore
pressure, geomechanics and integrated basin modelling. This is covered
though lectures and exercises based on borehole data. Topics covered
include thermal conductivity, heat flow, models of crustal streching,
mechanical and chemical compaction, mechanisms for pore-pressure
buildup, fluid flow on pore-scale and basin scale, fracturing, leakage,
consequences of erosion, migration and modelling of geological processes.
The second part includes elements in geomatics, reservoir geology and
reservoir modelling. The course focuses on the employment of modern
digital mapping techniques, such as lidar and photogrammetry, and how to
interpret these data and employ them for modelling reservoir analogues.
The entire workflow is covered, from data acquisition methods,
processing, interpretation techniques and modelling tools for generating
geo- and simulation models.
After having completed GEOV364 the student will
- have detailed knowledge about several central themes in petroleum geology.
- be familiar with central literature and current research within these themes
- be able to apply this knowledge in individual research projects.
- be able to evaluate how hydrocarbon phase, reservoir quality and the volume of hydrocarbons in place has changed through geological time, and how these changes influences the probability for discovering oil or gas.
