Why Choose this Training Course?

Participants of this 5-day intensive Petroleum Geology from A to Z training course are those who seek in-depth knowledge on this very interesting Geo-science field especially for all those involved in the oil industry from exploration early stages until the last phases of commercial shipment and transportation.

By choosing this PetroKnowledge training course, all attendees in any of their respective working sector, will be aware of all other factions work and data, knowing what others are doing and why, benefit from team work that they can share with all other teams members and can add more values to the company at any of its exploration to development steps. By knowing that, all attendees, at the end of this training course, will be able to speak the same language that used to be restricted to some and hence closing the gap between different teams and individuals working in this industry.

This training course will highlight:

  • All types of activities in  the petroleum geology
  • Inter-relation between different working disciplines in the oil industry
  • Types of reservoir and how to understand its evaluation
  • Applications of geology and geophysics to petrophysics and mapping
  • Petroleum system, modeling and Economics

Training Objectives click here

What are the Goals?

The main goals of this training course are to enlarge the attendee’s knowledge with other working areas in the oil industry and its importance, understand how evaluation of acquired data can lead to full description and interpretation: from texture and diagenesis to facies and from logs, core and seismic to maps and cross sections.

By the end of the training course, participants will know how zonation and facies can be framed both electrically and sedimentologically to finally create best fit approach for reserves and production performance. They will also learn to:

  • Relate data in hand to the global ideas of petroleum geology
  • Understand the working procedures for most of the factions in the oil industry
  • Build a framework and a scheme for the petroleum system
  • Learn how to evaluate and analyze other working group output when needed
  • Apply acquired knowledge to both company and individual benefit

Who is this Training Course for?

This PetroKnowledge training course is designed to help all team members from all oil companies sectors to have a bit added knowledge from each other. It is suitable for a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Petrophysicists
  • Geologists
  • Reservoir engineers
  • Geophysicists
  • Drilling engineers
  • Testing/production engineers
  • Data base managers
  • Administrators and finance managers who work closely with both exploration and development

How will this Training Course be Presented?

The instructor will not only show and interpret the training course material in detail but will trigger knowledge form the attendees themselves so once discussed, will never be forgotten, a live incrementing point system will be running with all discussions and quizzes during the course path, add to that several videos will be shown and discussed
