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 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 now invite submissions of case studies to supplement these themes and are particularly interested in examples where the current models do not adequately describe the observed data or examples where there are observed spatial and temporal variations in heat flow and subsidence along a continental margin.  The case studies need to be data driven either seismic, wells or both. The workshop will also have dedicated break-out session where participants can discuss the issues outlined in the case studies, discuss potential solutions and then report back to the main meeting. We anticipate this workshop will be the impetus for cross-disciplinary research, follow-up workshops and a later conference.    

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.
