FAULT KINEMATICS

FAULT KINEMATICS

Mr. Randy Partap bpTT July 8th , 2022 1-day Distance Learning This one-day course aims to give an understanding of the nature of faults and hands-on techniques for determining fault characteristics. The Trinidad and Tobago region sits on a plate boundary between the Caribbean and South American Plates. The tectonic history of the region has facilitated strike slip, reverse, and normal faults resulting in displacement in six basins in the region. Faulted anticline are common trapping types in these basins. Consequently, an understanding of the geometries, networks and evolution of faults is key to future exploration, hydrocarbon production and carbon dioxide sequestration. This course will offer geological methods to unravel fault networks, fault linkages, cross-cutting relationships and fault damage zones. Methods for fault integration, fault validation and fault timing will also be examined. In addition, the course, with the use of case studies, will introduce participants to fault seal analysis, structural restoration and techniques to resolve fault networks.
