Grand Preanger Hotel, Bandung | October 20-23, 2009 | Rp.7.250.000,-


Just like hunting for a hidden treasure, a map is one of the key factors toward successful valuable findings.

This course is designed to broaden the knowledge of participants with regards to the sub-surface mapping techniques. These techniques are important to generate or interpret the existing maps that further guide the exploration and exploitation strategy of the company.

The participants will learn starting from the basic techniques to more advances ones and also understand the unique characteristic of earth phenomena that may contain valuable deposits or oil/gas traps.


Featuring the Following Issues That Impact Your Exploration and Exploitation Strategy

Contouring and Contouring Techniques

  • Rules in contouring
  • Contouring methods

Integration of Geophysical Data in Sub-surface Mapping

Fault Maps

  • Introduction
  • Fault displacement definition
  • Fault data from log
  • Fault surface maps construction
  • Type of faults patterns:
    • External Faulting
    • Compressional faulting

Fault Data Determined From Seismic Interpretation

Structure Maps

  • Contouring faulted surface
  • Combining structure maps and fault maps
  • Restored top-an aid to structural interpretation
  • Fault trace and gaps
  • Fault gaps Vs fault heave
  • The additive property of fault

Mapping Techniques for Various Tectonic Habitat

  • Extensional Tectonic:
    • Compensating
    • Bifurcating fault pattern
    • Intersecting
    • Growth fault system
    • Single non-growth faults
  • Wrench fault tectonic
  • Compressional:
    • Reverse faults
    • Thrust faults

Requirement for a Reasonable Structural Interpretation

Multiple Horizon Mapping

Discontinuity of Structure with Depth

Unique Characteristics Containing Valuable Deposits

  • Oil/gas traps

  • Geo-scientist (Geologist, Geophysicist, Exploration)
  • Petroleum Engineers (Reservoir Engineer, Production Engineer)
  • New Venture & Field Business Development
  • Hydrologist
  • Miners (Engineer, Business Development)
  • Everybody or professionals who wants to better understanding and broaden their knowledge from the course subject
