N004 - The Essentials of Rock Physics and Seismic Amplitude Interpretation
Jul 7 - 12
Westchase District, Houston, US

This four day course focuses on the construction and application of first-order models in seismic amplitude interpretation and through this promotes the understanding of the essential aspects of rock physics that are relevant in interpreting all types of seismic displays (including reflectivity, impedance and AVO data).
Advanced Hydraulic Fracturing: AHF
Jul 9 - 13
PetroSkills Conf. Center, Houston, TX, US

This advanced course is designed for those who have a practical understanding of the applications of hydraulic fracturing and want to expand their knowledge. The course will provide the details and discussion of fracturing concepts usually accepted or assumed in fracturing applications.
Applied Reservoir Engineering: RE
Jul 16 - 27
PetroSkills Conf. Center, Houston, US

This course represents the core of our reservoir engineering program and the foundation for all future studies in this subject. Numerous engineering practices are covered, ranging from fluid and rock properties to simulation and field development planning. Also available virtually.
Basic Drilling Technology: BDT
Jul 16 - 20
PetroSkills Conf. Center, Houston, US

This basic drilling technology course addresses the technology used to drill wells from a fundamental view point. Equipment and procedures involved with drilling oil and gas wells are described for those who are interested in understanding the drilling process regardless of academic background.
Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering
Jul 23 - 27
City Center, Calgary, Canada

This 5 day course is designed to introduce the fundamental aspects of reservoir engineering. Theoretical concepts and practical case histories are presented to assist reservoir and exploitation engineers in their primary functions - the determination of oil and gas reserves and the maximization of hydrocarbon recovery under various schemes.
Risk Based Process Safety Management: HS45
Jul 30 - Aug 3
London, UK

This course introduces process safety management in the oil and gas industry, the elements and benefits of process safety management systems, and tools for implementing and managing a system. In this course the participant will learn to use tools and techniques for managing process safety.
N071 - Workshop in Geological Seismic Interpretation: Salt Tectonics
Aug 7 - 10
Westchase District, Houston, US

This workshop focuses on the geology and geophysics of salt basins and salt-related deformation. The content is centered around exercises interpreting a variety of seismic data illustrating some of the characteristic structural styles of salt basins. The exercises are supplemented by relevant lectures on salt tectonics and seismic imaging in salt basins.
N382 - Recognition of Mudstone Depositional Processes and Depositional Settings: Implications for Reservoir Heterogeneity and Play Extent
Aug 7 - 10
Westchase District, Houston, US

This course will describe, illustrate, and interpret the wide range of bedforms and depositional processes within mudstone dominated successions, including flocculation, hypopycnal, hyperpycnal, wave enhanced gravity, and turbidite flows. Several mudstone classification and terminology schemes based on mineralogy and element composition will be introduced and contrasted for their strengths and weaknesses in assessing reservoir properties.
MBA in Oil & Gas
Aug 17 - Sep 17
Tutored distance learning, Online

The Oil & Gas MBA has been designed to equip oil & gas leaders with the skills, knowledge and tools they need to manage their business successfully. You will learn both advanced general management and strategy skills in conjunction with a unique theoretical and practical knowledge of the oil and gas sector.
N450 - Clastic Reservoir Characterization: The Importance of Recent Sand Models to Aid Subsurface Interpretation
Aug 20 - 22
Westchase District, Houston, US

This course will examine virtually every clastic reservoir you will ever explore for or develop, from basin margin alluvial fans to deep water units in the basin. For each reservoir type we will use Holocene core and log data to model depositional processes, facies variation and geometries. The models will be applied to outstanding outcrops and then to subsurface analogs via logs, field-trap examples and seismic signatures.
Introduction to ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code
Aug 21 - 22
City Center, Calgary, Canada

This 2 day course will introduce participants to the ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code. The Code provides requirements for the design, fabrication, examination and testing of metallic piping systems designed for the wide variety of fluid services used in the process industries. Selection of materials, pipe, valves and fittings will be discussed.
Basic Drilling, Completion, & Workover Operations: BDC
Aug 27 - 31
PetroSkills Conf. Center, Houston, US

This course presents the basics of drilling and completion operations, plus post-completion enhancement (workovers). Participants will learn to visualize what is happening downhole, discover what can be accomplished, and learn how drilling and completion can alter reservoir performance.
