Outcrop field courses

NFiP organizes multiple field trips annually with main focus of introducing the students to the stratigraphy and facies of mainly siliciclastic and carbonate sediments, and the depositional environment. Students are introduced to rock analogues to a number of important reservoir sections offshore Norway and other parts of the world. The field works often contain lectures with the aim of illustrating the concepts that are utilized to build reservoir models and provide hands-on experience building the models.
