About this Training Course 

To the non-geologist, working with Petroleum Geologists can be confusing. Petroleum geology has specific terminology and many concepts and data sources unfamiliar to the uninitiated.

This course has been designed to introduce these terms and provide an insight into how oil and gas are formed, how they are found and how they are extracted. Using a holistic combination of lectures, experiments, case study and practical exercises, the course involves an introduction to fundamental geological concepts, to exploration techniques, prospecting, drilling, well logs and recovery methods.

The course will also demystify the terminology surrounding petroleum geology, demonstrate the use of geological information to show the value and weakness of different datasets, and lead to better communication and decision-making between the geologists and non-geologists.

Course Highlights:

  • Course facilitator has delivered petroleum geology training to many companies over the years
  • Facilitator is also a professionally trained teacher and former university lecturer who is experienced in communicating with people at all levels of technical knowledge
  • Practical exercises, experiments, examination of real rocks, a virtual reality field trip and case study are used to clarify and reinforce important concepts

By attending this training, you will be able to acquire the following:

  • Understand the geological methods and principles used in hydrocarbon exploration, development and production.
  • Understand the key elements of a petroleum system, from hydrocarbon source to reservoir and seal
  • Appreciate basin analysis, regional geology and play based exploration techniques
  • Be aware of the different sorts of hydrocarbon trap from structural to stratigraphic
  • Understand the technical terminology, tools and methods used in exploration geology
  • Learn about unconventionals
  • Understand and evaluate the sources and reliability of various types of geological information
  • Understand acquisition, processing and interpretation of seismic data
  • Learn the technical processes and terminology involved in exploration
  • Understand how a prospect is defined and risked
  • Understand how seismic, existing well information and outcrop geology can be used for exploration
  • Gain an understanding of the methods used for petroleum geology to allow a discovery to be appraised and then developed

The course is suitable to all personnel, but those that benefit most include:

  • Geophysicists with little or no geological background
  • Petroleum Engineers (reservoir, drilling, production) who work with geological data
  • Project managers whose teams include petroleum geologists, Finance, Procurement, Marketing and Communications staff, and government Data Managers who handle petroleum geological data and need to understand the sources of different types of data.

The course will feature world-class virtual reality field trips that incorporate activities and features unavailable in the physical field, and provide for a more integrated and flexible learning resource (also see the trainer’s article on page 4 which was first published in GEO ExPro Magazine, the upstream oil and gas industry’s favourite magazine).
