This course is an introduction to petroleum geology and how a petroleum geologist uses the science to explore for oil and gas. Most engineers have a scientific education and background, but may not be familiar with some of the specific terms, processes and strategies unique to geology, and how they can work together with engineering data to evaluate prospects and plays for greater drilling success. Here are just a few of the topics to be covered:

  • Definition of a Petroleum Geologist
  • Duties of a Petroleum Geologist
  • Net pay, fracture orientation
  • Exploration strategy
  • How to scrutinize an oil & gas prospect
  • Risk Management
  • And more..........
