Course Description

This special course is designed to meet the needs of Geoscientists. It is composed of 5 parts, all of which contain practical training and workshops. The first part of the program trains participants on the fundamentals of business writing and communication using the most needed words in technical English.

The other parts are related to geoscience and petroleum engineering posing a great deal of emphasis on reservoirs and seismic related issues and basin analysis and Evaluation.

The last part will teach participants on how to look for oil.

The program is based on the PETREL software.

Note: "The minimum number of participants to conduct this course is 3 person"
