    Petroleum Geology | RILS

    This is a Remote Instructor Led Series(RILS) training. The remote classroom delivery is a modality that takesadvantage of the instructor led training content, while allowing the samecontent to be delivered remotely.

    Alltraining sessions will be delivered online with no face-to-face classroomattendance. This class will be deliver in 4 hours daily teaching sessions over 10 days

    The principal objective of this course is to summarize the fundamentals of Geology that need to be understood and integrated with Engineering data to effectively and optimally manage petroleum reservoirs.

    The goal is for participants to understand the variety of geologic data that are integrated together to carefully describe the three-dimensional geometry of a reservoir. Participants will gain an appreciation for the tools and techniques available to for reservoir characterization and how the resulting data are integrated together.
