This course is practical in nature, revolving around the elements of pressure plots, data to populate them (e.g. RFT/MDT and LOT/FIT) and their ..
interpretation, and an exploration of how to conduct useful pressure prediction/detection (both pore pressure and fracture pressure). The course covers topics such as the origin of abnormal pressures in the subsurface, seal breach, seal capacity, hydrocarbon column height and hydrodynamic aquifers. There is a mixture of lectures, discussion and exercises. Day Three will include sessions covering pore pressure issues as they relate to SE Asia geology, and where drawing examples and case material from where the course participants come dominantly located.
