Reservoir Geology and Geophysics

Skills and competences

In addition to developing the generic competences covered by all university master's degrees, students who successfully complete the course will be able to:

  • understand and apply resources for characterizing a sedimentary reservoir;
  • classify and analyse sedimentary materials and tectonic structures;
  • understand the procedures for modelling structural systems of the earth's crust;
  • understand geological systems of the earth's crust in order to improve the quantification and prediction of the phenomena involved in its generation and evolution;
  • incorporate information obtained from multidisciplinary data into a single model;
  • understand the fundamental mathematical, physical and geological principles applicable to geophysics;
  • identify the predominant processes in any geodynamic setting and determine the corresponding time scales and spatial scales;
    ' display a critical approach to the use of different geophysical and geological techniques;
  • prepare, process, interpret and present geological and geophysical data using the appropriate techniques, and solve numerical problems;
  • understand petroleum systems, seek out potential reservoirs and evaluate their behaviour;
  • apply acquired knowledge and a range of methodologies to analyse large-scale and small-scale processes.
