Course Description

Introduction

This GLOMACS Petroleum Geology for Non-Geologists online training course is a 5-day interactive course that consists of classroom presentations, case studies, and practical exercises exploring the main concepts and workflows of commercial Petroleum Geology. The petroleum industry, from upstream to downstream, encompasses some of the World's most extensive and most complex infrastructure, commercial, and trade networks. But where does it all begin? Where do the oil and gas come from? How are hydrocarbons found?

This course is developed to provide petroleum industry professionals with a working knowledge of the Geology elements and processes relevant to Hydrocarbon Exploration and Production. The main concepts and terms used in Petroleum Geology will be addressed as well as the exploration and production tools, types of data and software, and how geoscientists identify and evaluate drill-worthy prospects.

This online training course will highlight:

  • Introduction to Geology
  • The elements and processes of the petroleum system
  • Exploration and production tools
  • Exploration from basin-scale to drill-worthy prospect
  • Discovery through to appraisal and field development
  • Volumetric and Risk Assessment

Objectives

This will provide a global and practical view of Petroleum Geology. By the end of this online training course, the participants will have to acquire knowledge to: 

  • Understand the geological cycle and the basic concepts of sedimentary geology
  • Recognize the principal elements and processes of a petroleum system
  • Understand basin analysis concepts, regional geology, and exploration technique
  • Understand how seismic, well and outcrop data can be used for exploration and production
  • Able to define a prospect, calculate volumes and assess risks conceptually
  • Assess how Petroleum Geology allows discovery to be evaluated and developed

Training Methodology

This online training course will utilize a variety of proven online learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, retention of the information presented. The training course is conducted Online via an Advanced Virtual Learning Platform in the comfort of any location of your choice.

Organisational Impact

The organisational impact for participants attending this Petroleum Geology for Non-Geologists online training course includes the following benefits: 

  • Understand the process of how to explore for oil and gas, in a cost-efficient organization
  • Exploration and production workflows are understood by everyone
  • Comprehend the E&P workflows impacts on engineering, management, HSE, IT, financial and commercial sides of the company
  • Understanding geological volumetric and risk assessments of a prospect and how it can be translated into economic evaluations
  • The whole organization can communicate using a common terminology
  • Minimize risk and cost while maximizing the potential for the reward

Personal Impact

This online training course will personally benefit the participants to gain or enhance their understanding and knowledge by the following:

  • Understand Petroleum Geology concepts and process and the meaning of geological jargon used among geoscientists
  • Comprehend the natural variability of petroleum systems and the uncertainty associated with geological evaluations
  • Understand the impact of subsurface and surface geology in the development of a project – engineering, HSE, Management, IT, financial, etc.
  • Better communication through technical understanding allows support staff to be recognized and appreciated within an organization
  • An appreciation of the value of information – seismic and well data – allows staff from various teams to comprehend cost versus benefit and to positively participate in the decision process
  • Value the importance of specialist software packages, and how these are used in the search for hydrocarbons allows an alignment in their use and optimization of license numbers with potential for cost savings
