This intensive twelve (12) week training program is composed of a combination of an actual interpretation and mapping project coupled with classroom courses. Perfect for new hires, recent graduates, and those transferring from other disciplines, participants in this course go through a structured program that teaches them important, fundamental interpretation, engineering and mapping skills, and challenges them to complete an interpretation/mapping project involving 3-D seismic data, well logs and production information. The program is designed to quickly raise the competency level and knowledge of the participants in a short period of time.
Composed of a logical sequence of geoscience and engineering courses, the program provides an opportunity for each participant to learn the fundamental skills in finding and developing oil and gas resources. In addition, the participants get to immediately apply the learned skills in a real project situation; doing the project by hand with paper logs, paper seismic sections and hand generated maps and volumetric calculations.
