I. Course Name: GPHY 3423 Introductory Petroleum Geology and Geophysics II. Course Overview: Fundamentals of the utilization of geological and geophysical data in the exploration for and development of petroleum reserves. Fundamental principles of geological and geophysical data acquisition, processing and interpretation. III. Course Objective: At the end of the course, the petroleum engineering student will be able to: Integrate geological and geophysical data analysis to guide drilling and production programs Recognize interpretation pitfalls and their implications in reservoir management Generate basic geological and geophysical products ranging from hand-drawn maps to 3D workstation images IV.

VII. Time and Place: Monday and Wednesday, 12:30-1:20PM Room N202A Sarkeys Energy Center (Lecture) Room 340A and 340B Sarkeys Energy Center (Lab) – 4 groups! On-line discussion board with TAs to post questions under D2L VIII. Course Prerequisites: Geology 1114, Mathematics 2423, Physics 2514, Geology 3003. IX. Textbooks: For the geophysics component we will use the following two textbooks: The first book is published by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists. Join SEG for free (contact Roderick Perez) and get the book at the student price! www.seg.org . The second book is now in paperback and costs about $57. For the geology component we will use the following two textbooks: The first book (a classic) is available from the American Association of Petroleum Geologists and is now in paperback for $25. A true bargain. 2

The second book is from Elsevier and is thus more expensive. X. Lab Exercises For the geophysical component, we will use Schlumberger’s Petrel 2010, a modern PC-based seismic and geologic model building software package with excellent links Eclipse and other petroleum engineering products. We will use a modern 3D seismic volume acquired over the West Cameron area of the Gulf of Mexico to develop structural and stratigraphic mapping skills.
