PetroMod Fundamentals - (Virtual Instructor-Led Training)

This course focuses on teaching new users how to run PetroMod software. PetroMod petroleum systems modeling software combines seismic information, well data, and geological knowledge to accurately model the evolution of sedimentary basins over time and optimally predict if and how reservoirs have been charged with hydrocarbons. You will learn how to use PetroMod software via a series of exercises and gain a comprehensive overview of the 1D, 2D, and 3D workflows utilized in typical modeling projects. Domain theory will be discussed as needed to support the class exercises.
