Basin and Petroleum System Dynamics

Basin and Petroleum System Dynamics

The oil and gas industry has been a leading player in exploiting the power of virtual reality technology to enhance its business processes. The pressure to reduce exploration and development costs of new reserves and existing fields is immense: drilling wells, for example, may consume up to 85% of the total exploratory funds. Thus, the decision to drill should be taken in a sensible way based on studies that provide detailed knowledge of the area’s geologic conditions, both on the surface and in the subsurface. Therefore, knowledge of basin and petroleum system dynamics is key: a fundamental understanding of geoprocess occurring at different spatial and temporal timescales enables specialists to quickly and comprehensively interpret and manage large volumes of geodata, thus is significantly reducing cycle time for prospect generation.

Our executive education expert program, tailor-made to the specific demands of companies in the oil and gas industry

The Executive Program in Basin and Petroleum System Dynamics covers the interface between current state-of-art geo scientific insights and numerical simulation.

Target Audience: The program is ideally suited for professionals who would like to be proficient in the quantification of geo-processes and able to utilize a modern computer-based approach to petroleum systems modeling, as well as for professionals already involved in prospect generation.

Content: The field of petroleum geosciences is evolving constantly. A comprehensive integrative course where geoscientists are brought up to date with the latest developments in all critical domains (geophysics, geology, mathematics, chemistry, reservoir and petroleum engineering) is, however, not readily available.
