Introduction to Information Management in the Petroleum Industry

This course introduces the principles of Information Management applied to the Petroleum Industry. Using class lectures and practical activities, participants will gain the opportunity to realize the business value of data management and its impact through the Oilfield Life cycle.

Introduction to Geology

Geology is a core science that underpins much of what we do in the Oil & Gas business. A good understanding of the principles of Geology as they apply to Petroleum is essential for any subsurface discipline.

Subsurface Surface Production Optimization

A production system is the system that transports reservoir fluid from the subsurface to the surface and separates it into oil, gas, and water. From there the oil and gas streams are treated if necessary and prepared for sale or transport from the field. Any water produced will also treated and prepared for disposal or reinjection into the reservoir. The basic elements of a production system are the reservoir, perforations, production packer, production casing, tubing, wellhead, choke, flowline, separator, and tank.

AVO and Seismic inversion

This course is delivered in 4 hour segments over 5 days. The course is delivered by virtual means using Skype for Business.

A profitable development of an oil or gas field start with a good understanding of the subsurface as a basis for efficient and successful field management. The use of AVO and inversion techniques helps to create the best possible petrophysics subsurface model. Improved discrimination of reservoir units are made and models are generated using logs and seismic data. These techniques lead to highly accurate or highly probable (static) subsurface models compatible (if correctly up-scaled) to dynamic reservoir models obtained from reservoir engineering measurements and computations.

Introduction to Well Completions

The course introduces basic concepts of Completion Engineering. It familiarizes the attendants with conventional completions and equipment. Intelligent completions (ICV and ICD) are also explained.

At the end of the course, attendants will understand the criteria for completion selection, the functions of typical completion equipment and accessories.
