  • Publication number: 20200278474
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a method of generating a basin fill model using a set of known paleogeographic characteristic parameters, for a specified basin location and time interval. The basin fill model can be used to assist in predicting the location of submarine fan deposits containing commercially valuable hydrocarbons or minerals. The generated models and predicted locations can be used in a well system operation plan. A computer program product is also disclosed that can retrieve sets of known paleogeographic data and generate multiple interim models and parameters that can be used for further predictions on where, and at what depth, valuable deposits may be found. Addi-tionally, a basin fill modeling system is disclosed that can retrieve and store known characteristic parameters for various geographic locations and time periods and utilize those characteristic parameters in algorithms to generate basin fill models and to predict where valuable submarine fan deposits are located.
