This understanding of the oil and gas industry will enable you to communicate more efficiently and perform your job more effectively.
You will be introduced to exploration techniques and tools that geologists and geophysicists use, such as correlation, mapping, and seismic.
Dr. Norman J. Hyne, the instructor, will explain the methods used to drill, test, and complete a well, and how the gas and oil are produced.
You will work with samples of geological and engineering materials, plus you will learn to identify common rocks and minerals using various different hands-on methods.
Exercises throughout the course provide practical experience with well correlation, well log interpretation, subsurface map interpretation, and seismic interpretation. You will actually locate where to drill a well on the map you correlated!
This seminar is well illustrated with continuous power points plus hands-on samples including a drill bit, the Wilcox Sandstone, and samples of various crude oils.
BONUS: You will hear stories throughout the program of many famous (and not so famous) oil and gas professionals, which helps bring the industry to life.
