Combining Basin Modeling with Seismic Reservoir Characterization Workflows in the Deep-water Gulf of Mexico
Quantitative Seismic interpretation (QSI) integrates well-lo
Classically, basin modeling is done with the intention of modeling oil and gas generation and migration for a specific existing basin of interest.

Three-dimensional (3D) basin modeling is often over-simplified in tectonically and structurally complex sedimentary basins, neglecting structures that are potentially critical to understanding hydr


About Us

The Basin and Petroleum System Modeling Group (BPSM) is an industrial affiliates program and recognized center of excellence for training and research in the geohistories of sedimentary basins and petroleum systems. It was started in 2008 to meet the growing demand by industry, the service sector, and academia for graduates with quantitative modeling expertise. BPSM is supported through the Department of Geological Science and the Department of Energy Resources Engineering in the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences at Stanford University. Our graduating geoscientists are exposed to the latest geochemical, visualization, and quantitative numerical modeling technologies based in a rich and comprehensive curriculum. 



It will take place on the Stanford University campus at the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve.

Graduate student Will Thompson-Butler and Allegra Hosford Scheirer traveled to Bucaramanga and Bogotá in Colombia to visit scientists at Ecopetrol.

Several BPSM scientists traveled to Calgary to attend the AAPG ACE, 2016.
