The Structure

This PetroKnowledge training course is split into two modules:

MODULE I - Fractured & Unconventional Reservoir Modelling

MODULE II - Advanced Seismic Interpretation using Petrel

Each module is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone training course; however, delegates will maximise their benefits by taking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a two-week training course.
