    In day one, the participants will be exposed to the definition of hydrocarbon deposits and the key phases of the reservoir life cycle. Consequently, the course will cover the principle of Exploration Geology and Geophysics. Introducing exploration technologies and process that enables the oil and gas industry to define the origins of petroleum reservoirs, as well as exploration business processes and risk assessment.

    OilSim challenge 1 "Nominating blocks" will be utilized in a competitive but friendly teamwork environment.

    Day 2


    In day two, the course will continue covering exploring using common risk segment maps (CRS) and 2D seismic.  Drilling will be extensively covered including who is involved in drilling, main types of rigs and main rig sub-systems, and well design, directional drilling and the drilling AFE.

    OilSim challenge 2a "Prioritizing blocks with CRS" and challenge 2b "Use of 2D seismic and bidding" will be utilized in a competitive but friendly teamwork environment.  In OilSim challenge 3a participants learn about portfolio risks and collaboration between oil and gas companies through partnership agreements.

    Day 3

    Appraisal and Field Development Planning

    In day three, appraisal technologies and processes that define the rocks and fluids (Oil/Gas/Water) properties; how the reservoirs are evaluated; estimate and categorize resources and reserves; define how the discoveries are going to be produced - drive/depletion mechanisms; completions types and activities.  Field development planning activities using the appraisal information and petroleum economics and risk will also be discussed.

    OilSim challenge 3b "Appraisal Drilling" and challenge 4 "Depletion planning" will be utilized in a competitive but friendly teamwork environment.

    Day 4

    Facilites Planning and Construction

    Day 5

    Producing and Summary

    In day five, the course will review personnel and companies involved in production. Consequently, participants will be exposed to technologies and processes required to prepare and produce well fluids; process the recovered fluid to separate oil, gas and water and sell oil and gas and dispose or reinject water. Furthermore, the course will cover how to minimize operating expenses; monitor and maximize production; and eventually abandon a well. 

    The course will end with team reflections on all learning modules, as well as the use of OilSim.
