    Petrel Fundamentals

    The Petrel Fundamentals course introduces new users to Petrel functionalities with an 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 and go from setting up a Petrel project to plotting your results.

    You will learn about Petrel projects set-up, data import & visualization, creating simple surfaces and grids and performing basic quality checks. You will also be introduced to the Studio Database, the knowledge environment which empowers a new level of usability, collaboration and productivity.


    This course is available in the following languages: English - Russian

    Day 1

    Modules 1, 2, 3 & 4

    • 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.

    Day 2

    Modules 5, 6, 7 & 8

    • Make and edit surfaces workflow
    • Make simple grid process
    • Geometrical modeling
    • Plots

    In addition to the workflow for creating and editing various geological maps, this second training day will be dedicated to 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.

    Development and Exploration Geologists, Geophysicists, Geochemists, Geoscientists, Petroleum Engineers, Managers, and Technical IT personnel with no prior experience in Petrel software.

    • Petrel basics and interface
    • Retrieve and prepare your data
    • Visualization and QC
    • Seismic Reconnaissance
    • Make surfaces
    • Make simple grid
    • Geometrical modeling
    • Plotting

    We recommend that users with no prior experience in Petrel complete the Petrel Fundamentals course before taking the Petrel Reservoir Engineering, Petrel Geology, Petrel Geophysics, Petrel Drilling or Petrel Data Managment courses

    General knowledge of petroleum geology and geophysics or reservoir engineering as well as elemental software skills is recommended.
