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. 

News

In June of 2017, Allegra Hosford Scheirer was invited to speak at the “Petroleum Systems Modeling Workshop.”

The 10th annual BPSM conference will be held from Tuesday through Thursday, November 14th-16th, 2017.

Stephan Graham has been awarded for his lifetime of distinguished research and teaching.

Honorary Member is bestowed upon persons who have distinguished themselves by their service and devotion to the science and profession of petroleum geology and to the Association.
