A wealth of information in a short period of time, short courses are an effective and efficient way to learn about the industry. With so many to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

Houston Texas United States 19 August, 2014 21 August, 2014 1509
 
Houston, Texas, United States
19-21 August 2014
A joint course with AAPG and University of Tulsa Continuing Engineering and Science Education Department

Here is an introduction to the tools and techniques that geologists and geophysicists use to locate gas and oil, that drillers use to drill the wells and that petroleum engineers use to test and complete the wells and produce the gas and oil. Exercises throughout the course provide practical experience in well log correlation, contouring, interpretation of surface and subsurface, contoured maps, seismic interpretation, well log interpretation, and decline curve analysis.

Denver Colorado United States 23 August, 2014 23 August, 2014 10173
 
Denver, Colorado, United States
23 August 2014
In conjunction with Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC)

The course will cover various petrophysical models in the evaluation of unconventional reservoirs—coalbed methane, tight gas sands, unconventional oil and gas reservoirs. The course should be of value to all involved or interested in unconventional reservoir appraisal.

Denver Colorado United States 24 August, 2014 24 August, 2014 10167
 
Denver, Colorado, United States
24 August 2014
In conjunction with Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC)

The course is a practical and applied introduction to geochemical techniques routinely employed in shale-gas condensate and tight-oil reservoir assessment with an emphasis on tools and techniques. Participants should have a solid background in petroleum geology.

Casper Wyoming United States 08 September, 2014 12 September, 2014 1513
 
Casper, Wyoming, United States
8-12 September 2014
Course plus field trip

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn all the aspects related to the understanding and modeling of fractured reservoirs. Attendees will take geologic concepts and use them in reservoir modeling through hands-on sessions devoted to the examination of outcrop, core and log data. They will use that information and a software to create 3D fractured reservoir models. Using actual Teapot Dome (Wyoming, USA) field data from the Tensleep and Niobrara Shale formations and a hands-on approach, the workshop allows the geoscientist to identify fractures and to construct predictive 3D fracture models that can be used to identify productive zones, plan wells and to create fracture porosity and permeability models for reservoir simulation.

Bogota Colombia 22 September, 2014 24 September, 2014 11074
 
Bogota, Colombia
22-24 September 2014

This course focuses on the concepts and principles of statistics as it applies to the petroleum system, estimation under uncertainty, EUR assessment given success, and chance of success for prospects.

Bogota Colombia 25 September, 2014 26 September, 2014 11055
 
Bogota, Colombia
25-26 September 2014

In this course, we will look at the practical application of the principles of Risk and Uncertainty to decision making and uncertainty management within exploration and the early appraisal, delineation, and development phases of an opportunity.

Houston Texas United States 08 December, 2014 11 December, 2014 1517
 
Houston, Texas, United States
8-11 December 2014

This course is designed to give participants the basic working tools to explore and develop hydrocarbons in salt basins. Because no two basins are alike, the focus is on understanding the processes and styles of salt-related deformation. At course completion participants should be able to under the depositional setting of layered evaporites, describe the mechanics of salt flow, interpret salt and stratal geometries associated with diapirs, salt welds, and minibasins, and assess more accurately the risks in the exploration of salt basins.
