Advanced Carbonate Reservoir Engineering

Reservoir engineering methods as practised in carbonate fields will be addressed in this 5-day training course. Practical and actual carbonate reservoir problems and examples will be used to illustrate relevant subjects. Specific reservoir engineering problems related to the heterogeneity, fluid-rock interaction and the often fractured nature of carbonate rocks will be examined.

Upstream Oil & Gas Development Lifecycle Costing

What you will learn from attending this training course, different resource types (oil, gas, conventional, unconventional), different situations and environments (onshore, offshore, deep water, desert, etc), all lifecycle stages (acquire, explore, appraise, define, develop, operate, decommission), the full value chain, from reservoir, through production, gathering, processing, conversion (e.g. to LNG), export, and up to point of sale.The various offshore development concepts (platform, FPS...

Applied EOR Technology

This 3-day course addresses the relevance and basic concepts of various EOR techniques. EOR techniques are often grouped in three main areas: thermal EOR (e.g. steam soak and SAGD), chemical EOR (e.g. low-salinity waterflooding, polymer and surfactant flooding) and Gas EOR (like HC gas and CO2 injection).

Virtual Reality (VR) Geology Field Trip

VR field trips aren’t just a cost effective, risk free alternative to real field work. They offer unique opportunities to incorporate activities and features unavailable in the field, and deliver a more integrated and flexible learning resource.

Exploration for Tight Gas System

This 5 day course is designed to train the explorationist to efficiently identify and map pervasive, large opportunities in Tight Gas Systems. They occur in both clastics and carbonates, and examples of each will be provided. In as much as these resource plays will be a main focus of future gas exploration, it is critical to understand the occurrence and characteristics of these huge unconventional accumulations. They will also become increasingly important in worldwide exploration as a larg...

Geomechanics

This five-day course provides an intermediate level of understanding of the geomechanical factors that affect wellbore instability, sand production and hydraulic fracture design. The course is structured such that upon completion, participants will have understood the value that geomechanics can bring to drilling, completion and production operations and will be able to leverage this value wherever it applies.

Critical Thinking In Geoscience -The Value of Integrated Data Interpretation and the Skills Required to Frame and Solve the Problems

This data driven training course aims to provide a mechanism to overcome barriers and facilitate collaboration, coordination, cooperation and co-creation between the disciplines. We need to step back and rediscover the analytical methods at our disposal and learn how they can be used to solve the problems that we face in exploration and production studies through critical thinking.
