This course is designed for geoscientists working in (deepwater) exploration and their direct supervisors. The course is also very instructive for staff from other disciplines working closely with exploration staff, such as reservoir engineers, petrophysicists and prospect portfolio analysts.
Knowledge of basic geology and chemistry are an advantage, but are not essential
