It is intended that students develop skills in the analysis of surface geological and, especially, from indirect sub-surface data, allowing them a first contact with the methodologies used by the hydrocarbon industry in the stages of evaluation of the potential of sedimentary basins potentially for exploitation.

Mainly group work.
Subject evaluation is done at 3 different times and in different ways. Students take a compulsory mini-test (TP1) corresponding to the first 3 chapters of the subject (about 50% of the subject), a second mini-test (TP2) about ¾ of the subject and an oral presentation of group work ( TP3) in the last quarter of the article (Chapter 5). In the case of TP1, students may choose, in addition to the mini-test, to deliver 2 practical assignments and their report (P), developed in class, which will only count towards the final grade if the grade is higher than TP1. The final grade (CF) is obtained as follows:
CF = 0.5TP1 + 0.25TP2 + 0.25TP3
CF> = 9.5 values
TP1 = TP1 or TP1 = 0.7TP1 + 0.3P
The frequency is obtained by attending at least 3/4 of the classes.
