    Introduction to Geoscience

    The objective of this 5-day course is to introduce professionals from disciplines other than the Geosciences to the key concepts and principles of Geology, Geophysics, and Petrophysics as applied to the Oil & Gas industry today. Emphasis is placed on the business applications of the particular discipline, using case histories and examples/exercises as appropriate.

    This course is a condensed version of three popular NExT courses:

    Introduction to Geology

    Introduction to Geophysics

    Introduction to Petrophysics

    Many of the same topics are covered, but in less detail, and with more emphasis on the links between the three disciplines. This is a good introductory-level course to the Geoscience disciplines, and will give a good working knowledge of the techniques and applications that are commonly applied.


    Business professionals in the Oil & Gas Industry, who wish to understand the principles of the main Geoscience disciplines, and their applications in todays E&P industry. The course is also appropriate for junior levels in non-geoscience disciplines.
