CCS-M Training Course on Sequence Stratigraphy


The CCS-M training course on sequence stratigraphy was conducted by the CCOP Technical Secretariat specifically for the young geoscientists of Cambodia, Lao-PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam on 25-29 April 2016 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  The course looked into the concepts and practical applications of sequence stratigraphy for petroleum exploration and mapping of potential reservoir for CO2 geologic storage.  The course involves both lectures, mini projects, and workshop formats with exercises to emphasise the recognition and correlation of sequences stratigraphic surfaces on well log cross-sections, seismic transects and outcrop profiles.  A team of experts from PETRONAS, Malaysia conducted the training course at the Sunway Hotel, Phnom Penh.  A one-day geological field work was also included in the agenda.

Thirty-six participants from Cambodia, Lao-PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam actively participated in the training.  The number also includes the resource persons from Malaysia and CCOP Technical Secretariat.  The participants are mostly involved in the CCS-M Program and UnConventional Oil and Gas Projects, currently the 2 main regional capacity building project on climate change and energy in the CCOP Technical Secretariat.

The course agenda was designed so that the participants will be able to have a better understanding of the concepts, methodology, application and workflow of sequence stratigraphy.  The course also included many group exercises.  Towards the last day of the training, the work groups were given the task to test the work flow and make a mini-project.  The participants are encouraged to apply and replicate the sequence stratigraphy workflow that was used in the training to their own basin study.  These includes, among others, data preparation, seismic sequence analysis flow, and the use of standard colour codes and terminologies.

A one-day field trip was organised in Bokor National Park,  about 200 km south of Phnom Penh.  The road cuts to the the top of the mountain park offers a good view of fluvial strata of Jurassic to Cretaceous sediments.
