Petroleum Geology for Non Geologists

Start Date: 7 Jan 2018
End Date: 11 Jan 2018
Duration: 5

Country: Dubai / UAE
Category: Petroleum and Oil Programs

Course Description

The Participants will acquire an understanding of the geological principles employed to find, develop and produce oil and gas reservoirs, the type of data required to build a model of the subsurface, and the different methods used to display information. This course will demystify the language used by geoscientists and help participants understand the relevance of petroleum geology within the overall framework of the upstream oil and gas industry.

Course Objectives

·         How to recognise the components of the structure of the Earth

·         How to identify the main rock types, their origins and their roles in petroleum generation and entrapment

·         How drilling, completing and reworking a well affects its ability to produce

·         What can be done within open-hole and cased wells, as a part of reservoir management

·         How drilling practices can damage or stimulate producing wells
