In the past decade significant advances have been made in the understanding of the evolution of rifted margins. It has nonetheless proven difficult to match models of heatflow and subsidence during and after continental break-up with well data, seismic observations and field studies.  

The aim of the meeting is to bring academia and industry together, particularly structural geologists and petroleum systems analysts with the aim of defining a common understanding of the data, models and challenges faced by the different disciplines interpreting and predicting structural evolution, heatflow and subsidence.

The workshop will take the form of keynote presentations followed by case studies in the following themes:

  • Mechanisms of rifting and continental break-up
  • Observations from borehole and high quality deep seismic data
  • Challenges faced by petroleum systems analysts in applying models to real data. 

The committee look forward to you joining us on the 8-9 October 2018 to participate in what promises to be an exciting and stimulating workshop.
