QAB 3023 Rock Physics & AVO Analysis 3 credits Seismic Methods

This course will focus on the seismic expression of hydrocarbons and lithology estimation using Amplitude Variation with Offset (AVO). It demonstrates how rock physics can be applied to predict reservoir parameters, such as lithologies and pore fluids, from seismically derived attributes. It shows how the multidisciplinary combination of rock physics models with seismic data, sedimentological information, and stochastic techniques can lead to more powerful results than can be obtained from a single technique. COURSE CODE: COURSE: NO. OF CREDIT: PRE-REQUISITE: QAB 3033 Basin Analysis & Petroleum System 3 credits i. Clastic Sedimentology & Petrography ii. Carbonate Sedimentology & Petrography

The course is a combine of lectures, exercises, and a team project aiming at evaluating the petroleum potential of an imaginary basin. Lectures will teach the students the elements of a petroleum system, using real examples of proven petroleum system in Malaysia, the Middle East, and other oil provinces of the world. Lectures and exercises will familiarize students with techniques in evaluating the hydrocarbon potential of a sedimentary basin, including regional geological studies, seismic, well log correlations, source rock, and reservoir analysis. COURSE CODE: COURSE: NO. OF CREDIT: PRE-REQUISITE: QAB 3043 Reservoir Characterisation & Modelling 3 credits i. Seismic Interpretation ii. Probability & Statistic

The course is to run through the workflow of reservoir characterization and modelling as routinely used in oil industry. The lecture will be illustrated by practical work using actual data. Deterministic and stochastic modelling, volumetric calculation, and uncertainties will be developed at each stage, with focus on geology, seismic, and geostatistical methods. The course covers; the characterization and modelling fundamentals; the krigging and its variations; the geostatistical simulation; geological reservoir modelling; Application of modelling software will also be introduced. COURSE CODE: COURSE: NO. OF CREDIT: PRE-REQUISITE: QAB 3044 Fieldwork Management & Geofield Camp 4 credits Geological Mapping Techniques

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to independent geological mapping and the construction of geological maps. You will develop the skills required to interpret and solve geological relationships at a variety of scales, and synthesize them into four-dimensional models that describe the geological evolution of terrains. These skills include hand specimen and outcrop geology, mapping and stratigraphic analysis at a range of scales, aerial photo interpretation, remote sensing and the integration of geophysical datasets into geological mapping and interpretation. Thus, the course will draw upon the principals of structural geology and combine them with an understanding of sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rock systems.
