    Petrel Fundamentals and Petrel Geology Combined - RILS (Remote Instructor Led Series)

    This is a Remote Instructor Led Series (RILS) training. The remote classroom delivery is a modality that takes advantage of the instructor led training content, while allowing the same content to be delivered remotely. All training sessions will be delivered online with no face-to-face classroom attendance.

    Petrel Fundamentals

    The Petrel Fundamentals course introduces new users to Petrel functionality with emphasis on visualization, data organization and collaboration. The course covers basic usage of the application, providing an understanding of how to get started with Petrel. You will learn about Petrel project set-up, data import, visualization, creating simple surfaces and grids and performing basic quality checks. You will also be introduced to the Studio Database and simple tools for retrieving data.

    Petrel Geology

    The Petrel Geology course focuses on a basic 2D geological workflow that teaches how to perform volume calculations with no seismic derived geomodel.  The course aims to teach students common basic geological operations in Petrel. This includes working with well data, surfaces and simple map-based volume calculation.

    The course will be delivered over a total of 26 Hours; i.e. in five (5) sessions lasting five (5) to 5.5 hours each.

    Each participantwill need the following for an optimal experience of the course:

    • Windows-based PC
    • USB headset
    • Internet access
    • Second monitor or tablet for the course manual(s)
    • Webcam

    Session 1: Modules 1, 2, 3 & 4 (5 hours)
    • Getting Started: Petrel Basics
    • Data Preparation
    • Data Visualization and QC
    • Seismic Reconnaissance

    In this session, participants will be introduced to the Petrel user interface and important project parameters. In addition to understanding the data structure, they will practice how to import and manage data in different formats, how to retrieve data from repository projects and from the Studio database and how to share data. They will also learn data visualization and quality control (QC) techniques.

    Session 2: Modules 5, 6 & 7 (Part 1) (5 hours)

    • Find your data
    • Data display in the Well section window
    • Log editing

    This session will introduce the participants to the process of searching and retrieving data from an existing Petrel project or from the Studio database. Then, the participants will learn how wells data is organized and they will practice how to optimally display multiple wells information in a well section window for correlation. They will also discover and use the different well log editing options and tools available in Petrel.

      Session 3: Modules 7 (Part 2), 8 & 9 (5.5 hours)

      • Log editing
      • Well correlation, Logs Correlation, and Collaboration Workflows
      • Isochore and Isopach Processing

      After completing the Log editing module, this session will cover the use of regional seismic, checkshots and simple logs and present the methodology for creating cross sections, performing regional correlation and interpreting facies in a collaborative environment. Then, the participants will learn the process of generating isochore and isopach data.

        Session 4: Modules 10, 11, 12 & 13 (5.5. hours)
        • Make and edit surfaces workflow
        • 2D gridding and quality improvement
        • Surface editing and operations
        • Log property mapping

        This session will focus on the workflows and functionalities for creating and editing various geological structural and property maps.
        Session 5: Modules 14, 15, 16 & 17 (5 hours)
        • Map-based volume calculations
        • Make simple grid process
        • Geometrical modeling
        • Plots

        This final session will focus on map-based volume calculations, Simple gridding and Plotting. First, leveraging the surfaces, isochores and property maps created inthe previous sessions, the participants will perform map-based volume calculations, which can be used during prospect assessment. Then, after covering the basic concepts of 3D structural modeling in Petrel and the Simple grid functionality, the participants will also practice how to configure geometrical modeling methods to create geometrical properties and how to display, filter and QC them. Finally, the participants will learn about the best practices for Plotting in Petrel, including how to optimally use the Map window, how to create montage plots and how to print scaled plots.
