The aim of this course is to teach the principles of petroleum exploration, development and production in a relaxed and stimulating environment. Non-technical language will be used to explain the scientific, engineering and commercial principles involved in the industry. The course comprises a combination of classroom lectures, innovative demonstrations and field excursions. At each stage of the course participants take part in a series of enjoyable exercises that elucidate the complete exploration and development process, and both the technical and commercial challenges in petroleum production. No previous knowledge of geology or the oil industry is required.
This 3-day field and classroom based course provides an innovative, challenging and enjoyable introduction to the petroleum exploration, development and production industry. The course is run in the beautiful Purbeck Peninsula of Dorset, UK – an area that contains classic petroleum geology and producing oil fields. The Jurassic coastline of the peninsula is designated as a World Heritage Site. You will see and use exploration data such as the seismic line from the Purbeck area, and be able to see the interpreted rocks in the cliffs. A unique working oilfield model will be used to demonstrate the principles of petroleum geology.
You will learn:
- how, why and where oil and gas accumulates in sedimentary basins
- how we explore for oil and gas using a range of technology
- how fields are appraised, developed and eventually put on production
- how to use the techniques described on the course to explore for a real oil field
Who should attend?
This course primarily designed for financial, legal, government and other professionals who need to learn more about the oil and gas industry. Also, personnel, PA, administrative and technical within or entering the oil and gas industry.
