Pore pressure prediction is important for both real-time drilling to optimize field safety conditions, and for paleo-modeling to provide a framework for development of the basin and petroleum syste
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
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.
