Develop measurable skills and capabilities
Business context: A profitable development of an oil or gas field starts with a good understanding of the subsurface. As part of a subsurface evaluation team the geophysicists and geologists interpret subsurface data and provide geological models that form the basis for development planning. Construction of maps and sections of the subsurface, including integration of seismic and well data, forms an important part of the evaluation. The result should also provide illustration material on which management should be able to make decisions. Computers are frequently used to construct subsurface models and calculate reserves. A check for consistency with structural models, and against a quick manual evaluation should always be done. This course provides the tools for this.
At the end of the course participants will be able to apply geological concepts, construct maps and sections and validate computer-generated interpretations. They will be able to calculate subsurface volumes and assess their uncertainties. They will develop knowledge on faults dimensions and properties and learn how to perform fault seal analysis. They will acquire practical experience by working on actual field studies in teams.
In addition to the ones quoted in the course schedule dedicated exercises may be added to ensure participants understand the concepts discussed.
