The University of Texas at Austin and Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) State of Texas Advanced Oil and Gas Resource Recovery (STARR) Program are presenting an all-day core workshop of the Wilcox Group in Texas. Following morning lectures on Wilcox sequence stratigraphy and depositional systems in the Main Conference Room at BEG (10100 Burnet Road, Building 130), the workshop is then devoted to an afternoon’s review of cores in the Core Research Center (Building 131). Attendees can get a hands-on view of key cores with a detailed review of depositional systems and reservoir facies. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to observe numerous examples of vertically superimposed sedimentary facies from fluvial, deltaic, and transgressive-shelf depositional systems. 

Registration does not include parking pass for Pickle Research Campus
