AAPG GTW in Kota Kinabalu a big success gallery

Please note: Course is offered at the beginning of every month. You may sign up for it at any time, and your course will begin the first day of the upcoming month.
Who Should Attend
This course is ideal for geologists, geophysicists, engineers, and other energy professionals who want to learn about giant and super-giant fields, their reservoirs, and production history
Objectives

By the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Define key aspects of the growing biopower and biofuel industry, including different locations and scales of production.
  • Describe the current use of biomass-generated energy.
  • Identify and list past and current incentives for using and producing biomass energy.
  • Recognize companies developing and investing in biomass energy, as well as estimate the business benefits of such investments.
  • Identify the scientific fundamentals of the exploration, development, and distribution of biopower and biofuel.
  • Describe the scientific, technological, and business components of energy from biomass sources, e.g., the six types of biopower systems (direct-fired, cofiring, gasification, anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis, and small, modular) and sources of biofuel, e.g. ethanol, biodiesel, and methanol.
  • Cite current applications of biopower and biofuels in the energy industry.
  • Discuss and analyze case studies involving the integration of biopower/biofuel and non-renewable sources of fuel and energy.
  • Devise methods for the integration of biopower/biofuel and non-renewables in order to anticipate future changes in the energy market.
Course Content

There are more approximately 1,000 oil and gas fields in the world that have been classified as "giant," containing more than 500 million barrels of recoverable oil and /or 3 trillion cubic feet of gas. Giant Oil and Gas Fields is an online course that enables participants to study the structure, stratigraphy, and production history of the fields and an analysis of effective exploration, production, and enhanced oil recovery methods.

Key Concepts
  • Giant petroleum fields
  • Tectonic settings of giant fields
  • Giant Field Trends
  • Deepwater Discoveries
  • Stratigraphic Controlled Giant Fields
  • Salt Domes
  • Deltaic Reservoirs
  • Carbonate Reservoirs
  • Deep Marine Clastics Reservoirs
  • Basin Modeling
  • Unconventional resources
  • fractured reservoirs
  • hydraulic fracturing
  • CO2 enhanced oil recovery
  • reservoir characterization and 3D seismic
  • seismic imaging and reservoir / stratigraphic definition
  • offshore seismic data acquisition techniques
Course Structure

With direct contact with your professor, who will answer questions and review your work via e-mail, you will have a chance to learn about giant oil fields in a personalized setting. You may also have an opportunity to interact with other professionals in the field who will be available for your questions. A discussion board will be available for interaction with peers.

  • Unit 1 (Week 1): Definition of Giant Oil and Gas Fields
  • Unit 2 (Week 2): The First Giant Oil and Gas Fields
  • Unit 3 (Week 3): Expanding Onshore and Offshore
  • Unit 4 (Week 4): New Technologies, New Giants

This course is offered at the beginning of every month. You may sign up for it at any time, and your course will begin the first day of the upcoming month. This course is designed to be equivalent to a 3 credit-hour graduate-level seminar. It is a 4-week online course which consists of 4 one-week units that involve readings, multimedia, guiding questions, and assignments for you to do and to email to your instructor. You will receive feedback from your instructor, and upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate.

Required Work: For each unit, one research project and a short paper that responds to guiding questions, for a total of four brief research projects and four papers.
