Course Description

The course will cover fundamentals of geological principles employed to find, develop and produce oil and gas reservoirs, the type of data required to build a model of the subsurface, and the different methods used to display information. Furthermore, this course will demystify the language used by geoscientists and help participants understand the relevance of petroleum geology within the overall framework of the upstream oil and gas industry.

Course Objectives

  • Recognizing the components of the structure of the Earth
  • Identifying the main rock types, their origins and their roles in petroleum generation and entrapment
  • Understanding how drilling, completing and reworking a well affects its ability to produce
  • Understanding what can be done within open-hole and cased wells, as a part of reservoir management
  • Understanding how drilling practices can damage or stimulate producing wells

Who Should Attend?

  • Petroleum engineers
  • Technical/reservoir engineers
