AAPG E-Symposium Series. This course highlights methodologies for managing the wide range of input data used in geomodelling, and approaches to building fit for purpose 3D geological models. It shows how to design modelling schemes, identify uncertainties and how to apply results to real life field development. Field examples are utilized and theory is kept to a minimum. Process charts and checklists shared in the course will be an ‘after course’ resource and reference especially for model framing, uncertainty handling and designing “fit for purpose model” workflows. This course is designed to provide participants with information not normally provided in routine geological model training courses.
