Re: Application of sequence strati. for hydrocabon explorati
If I was asked this question in an interview I would say:
"sequence stratigraphy is the basis for projecting from well control into undrilled parts of a basin the critcal factors for finding oil and gas fileds; where the source rocks are likely to be, what are the reservoirs likely to be, how good are the seal rocks likely to be and whether there are chances for large stratigraphic traps."
Hope this helps and good luck in your interviews.
