Basic Exploration

Finding new oil and gas reserves is core business for most oil & gas exploration and production companies, or government petroleum organizations.
Geologist working in exploration teams need to have a thorough grasp of the geological processes that are relevant for the formation of oil and gas pools. Also they must have skills in, and awareness of the multitude of tools used in petroleum exploration. This course discusses the fundamentals of all aspects of petroleum exploration and is intended for:
- Newly joined and newly qualified technical staff such as geologists and geophysicists.
Contents of the programme:
- Overview of world-wide oil & gas occurrences:
- Formation of sedimentary basins.
- Play concepts and petroleum systems.
- Fundamentals of seismic acquisition, processing & interpretation
- Fundamentals of the formation of reservoirs (clastics & carbonates), seals, and source rocks.
- Trap formation and structural style
- Hydrocarbon generation & migration
- Basin prospectivity assessment.
- Oil and gas prospect mapping
- Other exploration tools: gravity/magnetic, wire line logs, (surface) geochemistry.
At the end of the course the participants will have a good general understanding of the basics of oil and gas exploration.
