Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes real-life case studies and exercises where participants will be engaged in a series of interactive small groups and class workshops. This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of exploration geology. It covers the petroleum industry and the fundamental aspects of full life cycle of oil and gas industry; the oil and gas exploration in international business; the primary and secondary structures and petroleum relationship; the rock types and petroleum relationship covering igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks and metamorphic rocks; and the petroleum systems process including its origin, formation, migration and accumulation. During this interactive course, participants will learn the petroleum systems elements that include oil and gas source rocks, oil and gas cap rocks and oil and gas reservoirs; the exploration methods for oil and gas consisting of surface geology, geophysical methods, geochemical methods and drilling methods; the prospect generation and evaluation including its definition, the play concept, subsurface integration, generation delineation plan and prospect and play evaluation process; the formation evaluation including well-sitting evaluation, petrophysics evaluation and core analysis evaluation; and reservoir characterization through its definition and workflow. link to course overview PDF
