BASIN ANALYSIS, HYDROCARBON GEOLOGY AND PRACTICALS
Sedimentary basins and geodynamic settings (basin development, characteristics and sedimentation). Subsidence curves and their interpretation. Geochemical analyses of hydrocarbons as a tool for the definition of origin and maturity. Properties of source rocks and thermal evolution. Petroleum system modelling, risk evaluation in different prospects. Hydrocarbon Habitat & Distribution: origin of oil and gas, source rocks, simulation of generation, expulsion, migration and trapping of hydrocarbons. Reservoir and seal rocks, structural and stratigraphic traps. Exploration techniques generalities from play to prospect evaluation.
Petroleum exploration and production life cycle, phases and economical factors. Legal-contractual aspects of hydrocarbon exploration and production. Hydrocarbons in the world.
