The Fundamentals of Petroleum Geoscience is a 2-day super-charged course that gives you a combination of presentations, hands-on problems, and your own exploration project. You will be introduced to the formation and occurrence of petroleum, exploration economics and risk assessment, seismic and basic seismic interpretation, how to drill a well, how wells are appraised, tested and completed, production, and petrophysical log analysis. Through the exploration project you will gain an overview of exploration economics and risk, and experience the various activities of the exploration geoscientist and the decision making processes that are part of the exploration process.
You will emerge from this short course with an enhanced level of understanding of petroleum exploration and petroleum geoscience. You will develop a solid foundation of understanding and skill development that will be easier to enhance at some later date.
If you already feel comfortable with this subject matter, please consider the others in your team or company who may be geophysicists, engineers, hard-rock geologists, or involved in a different area, but who need a firm grasp of petroleum geology.
The event is organized and hosted by AAPG, a worldwide geoscience organization, with more than 36,000 members worldwide, and will take place May 19-21, 2010, at the Norris Conference Center, Houston/Westchase. Cost and registration information is available at the AAPG’s website.
