Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Participants of this 5-day intensive Petroleum Geology from A to Z online 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 online 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 Petroleum Geology from A to Z online 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

What are the Goals?

What are the Goals?

The main goals of this Petroleum Geology from A to Z online 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 Petroleum Geology from A to Z online 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
