Deepwater Geohazards

Learning objectives

  • Obtain a good understanding of the geological, geophysical and geomechanical aspects of geohazards, their prediction and mitigation,
  • There will be extra focus on fundamentals of geomechnic and pore pressure modeling.
  • Learn about the potential drilling risks and mitigation.
  • Please note that this is not a drilling deep water course but it complements such course.
  • The course is most suited for  geoscientists, petroleum engineers and drilling engineers who want to know more about geological and geophysical aspects of geohazard.
