Description


This 3-day course is an introduction to petroleum geoscience, with a specific focus on how it integrates with petroleum engineering and the techniques of evaluating oil and gas properties. There are a number of in-class exercises to learn through application and this course includes a field trip to the world-class Canadian Rocky Mountains to explore real reservoir rocks, view folding and faulting first-hand, hunt for fossils, and observe other geological phenomena. By the end of this course, participants will be able to understand industry geoscience terminology and practices, know how to read a well log, understand the benefits and limitations of seismic data, learn how geomodels are made, and understand how geoscience is integrated into the evaluation of oil and gas properties.
