Dorset Field Trip (Petrox) 2019

NB: This course occurs at the same time as the 4th biannual CO2 for EOR as CCUS 2019 conference (Sept. 25-27th) in Houston, Texas, US and thus they cannot be combined.

Note the short application deadline!

The Jurassic coast provides spectacular exposures of Triassic-Cretaceous sediments, which include outcropping examples of source rocks and reservoirs of the Wych Farm oilfield, including a number of fossil oil seeps. The course will provide an introduction to the stratigraphy and facies of the siliciclastic and carbonate sediments, and instruction in field logging and sampling techniques appropriate to the various sediment types present.

The course will include lectures on the evolution and development of the Wessex Basin oilfield (Southern England), and is a collaboration with NTNU. Teachers are Ole Torsæter, Maarten Felix and Andy Gale.
