Basic Petroleum Engineering

Face-to-face Instructor Led Courses, Industrial, Chemical and Fuel

What Is Basic Petroleum Engineering Training?

In this course the development life cycle from the gathering of geological data from seismic and wells the interpretation thereof the preparation of subsurface models and the quantification of their uncertainty are discussed. Attention is given to impact on field operations and on field management during its entire cycle. By the end of the course delegates will be able to apply geological concepts construct maps and sections and validate computer generated interpretations. They will be able to calculate subsurface volumes and assess their uncertainties and review their impact on facilities planning operations and project economics. They will acquire practical experience by working on an actual field study in teams.

Who Should Attend

Newly joined and newly qualified staff such Petroleum Engineers and Geologists involved in development of oil and gas reservoirs.
