What You Will Learn :
- Develop an understanding of how to evaluate a variety of subsurface maps including fault, structure, and isochore maps.
- Understand the types of questions to ask when reviewing interpretations, maps and prospects.
- Evaluate the 3-D viability of an interpretation, map or prospect.
- Determine whether an interpreter has applied sound, industry-accepted geoscience principles and methods to generate an interpretation, map or prospect.
Drilling success is not a thing of chance, but determined by sound science. This program is designed for he need for a systematic approach for quickly screening interpretations, maps, prospects and potential resources or reserves and identifying fundamental interpretation, mapping and estimating errors. Much of this program is dedicated to highlighting common errors found in subsurface interpretations and maps. Examples of mistakes and pitfalls are presented from all over the world.
QC TECHNIQUES ARE COVERED FOR EACH PROJECT
Course material includes an in-depth focus on examples of interpretation and mapping errors that led to poorly located wells that proved to be uneconomic or dry, as well as inaccurate reserves or resources estimates. Participants will cover a number of methods for addressing the risk factors that can cause dry holes. All course projects include an array of examples from subsurface data, 2D seismic and 3D seismic data, as well as both hand contoured and computer contoured maps.
Who is this course for?
This course is designed for all professionals involved in the preparation, review or evaluation of subsurface interpretations, prospects, fields and reserves or resources.
Those best suited for this program will likely work as:
exploration and development geoscientists
property and prospect evaluators
supervisors and managers
bankers and investors
