The practice and profession of petroleum geology is firmly rooted in the science of geology itself. This course will review the process of petroleum exploration and the rationale behind the methodology. The class will introduce the non-geologist to the concepts, tools, techniques, and terminology used by geologists in the search for oil and gas. Understanding the vocabulary of petroleum geology will aid in communication between team members and those in other departments.
Topics include: Rocks and Minerals, Plate Tectonics and Petroleum Basins, Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, Structural Geology, Geologic Time and History of the Earth, Correlating and Mapping Formations, Exploring for Oil and Gas Traps.
About the Course: The objective of this course is to provide non-geologists with a practical understanding of petroleum geology by reviewing both the scientific background and the practical applications of geology in the search for oil and gas. The tools, techniques, and vocabulary of the petroleum geologist will be emphasized throughout the course. This understanding will enable the non-geologist to communicate more efficiently and perform their job more effectively. Participants will learn about the origin and accumulation of oil and gas, the basic principles of Petroleum Systems and the methods used in studying geologic history and basin evolution and about the relationship of depositional systems, sedimentary facies, and reservoirs for oil and gas.
Who Should Attend: This class is designed for landmen, engineers, geological technicians, accountants, managers, IT professionals, secretaries, or any industry professional with no geological background who need an overall perspective of petroleum geology.
