Development Geology

Business context
a profitable development of an oil or gas field starts with a good understanding of the subsurface. The development then continues with integrated field management in which geology plays an essential role. In this course the “development life cycle” from the gathering of geological data, the interpretation thereof, the preparation of geological models and the quantification of subsurface uncertainty are discussed. Attention is given to impact on field operations and on field management during its entire cycle. An additional two-day field excursion is optional.

Who should attend
Petroleum engineers and geologists involved with exploration and development of oil and gas reservoirs?

Content of the program
- Planning, gathering and management of geological data
- Geological concepts, global tectonics
- Geophysical methods, production seismic
- Sequence Startigraphy, log correlation
- Environments of deposition (Clastic, carbonates)
- Mapping of reservoir parameters and structure
- Structural styles, trapping condition
- Reservoir fluids, initial condition
- Reservoir architecture, geological modeling
- Oil and gas volumetric calculation
- Subsurface uncertainty and risk analysis
- Case histories
- Vertical and horizontal well applications, operational geology
- Field excursion (optional): illustration of Clastic and carbonate sedimentary environments and structural geology in 3-D.

Learning methods and tools
at the end of the course participants will be able to apply geological concepts, construct maps and sections and validate computer-generated interpretations. They will be able to calculate subsurface volumes and assess their uncertainties, and review their impact on project economics. They will acquire practical experience by working on an actual field study in teams.
