Workshop on Petroleum Geoscience

Hydrocarbon Explorationis a very broad terminology and it encompasses studies in various domains. A synergistic approach, integration of various kinds of data in a structured way leads to successful exploration. Every studies like Geology, Geophysics, Petrophysics, Reservoir Engineering, Drilling, Facilities, Economics etc. all are equally important. The holistic approach deals with both temporal and spatial data. Therefore studies are principally governed by data, model and knowledge. Sense of scale, observation power and ability to correlate across varieties of information and data are essential for anybody working in these domains.

The two days’ workshop-cum-training is designed by keeping the integration approach in mind.

It is not at all possible to cover entire gamut of exploration in such a limited timeframe. Therefore,

a simplistic approach has been adopted to cover a broad framework of exploration studies with an essence of various geoscientific and engineering data which are very frequently used in oil and gas industry. Every basin has its own characteristics. The more data we see, more knowledge we acquire. A number of real world seismic data sets, wireline log, engineering data etc will be interpreted and discussed during these two days. The workshop includes introduction to models, real data, followed by exercises and discussion. The main focus is on two aspects:

1. Seismic interpretation

2. Basin Analysis and Prospect Evaluation

Who may attend:

Final year geoscience students, preferably M.Sc, Research students, Faculty.


Two days: July 2016

Final dates may be decided in due course of time.
