What ever you choose for research must be app||ed and re|evant to petro|eum |ndustry and makes
va|ue for econom|c benef|t and shou|d be more than [ust pure academ|c or s|mp|e theoryŦ

Wh||e prepar|ng the Intent of research |etter you can ment|on that porous and th|ck reservo|r
sequences |dent|f|cat|on |s a ma[or obstac|e |n |ocat|ng good fac|es for o|| and gas accumu|at|on and
you ||ke to h|gh||ghts our past |nterpretat|ons ||m|tat|ons and want to propose a method that he|p to
reduce uncerta|nty and |mprove the |nterpretat|onŦ

Sequence strat|graphy |s st||| |n |ts ear|y phase but so far |ts effect|veness has been estab||shed foe
qu|te an extentŦ I wou|d suggest that your area of study shou|d be where you can have many good 2D
and 3D se|sm|c data w|th ava||ab|||ty of many we||s geo|og|ca| data (|ogsţ cores and other prospect
reports)ţ Sub[ects shou|d be |dent|f|cat|on of reservo|r fac|es and source rocks on any g|ven bas|n w|th
the he|p of 2D]3D and we||s |ogs data w|th Sequence ana|ys|sŤ bas|n you can se|ect where reservo|r
|dent|f|cat|on |s a cha||enge and you can estab||sh a workf|ow and methodo|ogy w|th the app||cat|on
of s|m||ar bas|n type examp|e (ana|ogue)Ŧ
