September 11 to September 14, 2006
Oil & Gas Reservoir Management
London, United Kingdom

This 4-day workshop is designed for petroleum engineers and geo-scientists who require an appreciation of the key business drivers that influence the development of oil & gas reservoirs, the key uncertainties that must be managed through the life of such reservoirs, and an understanding of how the management (or mismanagement) of these uncertainties can affect reservoir performance and field economics. The course will provide participants with a framework for reservoir management; a list of key business drivers affecting the onshore and offshore development of gas reservoirs, depletion drive oil reservoirs, water floods, EOR schemes, & pilot floods; and a toolbox for evaluating the performance of producing oil and gas fields. Through the discussion of a variety of example reservoirs from on-shore and off-shore developments around the world, participants will gain an appreciation of the strategies required to enhance the performance of producing reservoirs. A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Geophysics for Geologists
Calgary, Canada

This five-day course is designed for petroleum geologists wishing to gain seismic data interpretation skills for both structural and stratigraphic objectives. The session provides a detailed review and discussion of contemporary seismic methods, and includes a workstation demonstration to assist participants to appreciate the important uses of this modern technology. Petroleum geologists of all experience levels will benefit from this course by adding seismic interpretation to their technical skills portfolio. The course is non-mathematical in its treatment of the topic. A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Exploration Data Contouring, Mapping and Interpretation
Calgary, Canada

This two-day course, designed for explorationists, will assist participants in developing map data contouring skills required to produce reliable and high quality maps in support of exploration and production activities in the Petroleum Industry. The session will emphasize the explorationist’s role as a searcher for deeply hidden hydrocarbons, the necessary positive approach to the interpretation and mapping of subsurface geological features, and the importance of constructing maps that effectively demonstrate and accurately illustrate exploration possibilities and drilling opportunities. Reliable methods for detecting, developing and displaying the not-yet-apparent subsurface features in areas where only fragmental well and seismic control is available are discussed and illustrated with case history examples. The session includes a review of computer-generated maps and their application. A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Course Outline
Exploration and Production Objectives
Contouring Techniques
Mapping Subsurface Features
Contouring and Geological Models
Calculating Reservoir Volumes from Maps
Trend Surface and Residuals Mapping
Prosect Mapping from Seismic Data
Computer Generated maps
Quantitative Facies Maps
