During this course, participants will learn how to apply a structured approach to effective negotiating. Combining this with the practice sessions incorporated into the program this course is designed to improve participants’ confidence in negotiating and improve the outcomes of their negotiations. Attendees will be exposed to the Breakthrough Negotiation Strategy to help them achieve results in difficult and complex negotiations.
The bulk of this interactive course comprises of realistic, oil industry-based, role-play negotiating scenarios based on a variety of commercial and non-commercial situations. This is underpinned with instruction in negotiating principles and methodology, as well as essential checklists for planning and reviewing.
This course will include the presentation of various reserve estimating methodologies, to include the difference between resources and reserves. The classifications and definitions of these reserves and resources, along with a guideline for the application of these definitions will be covered. PRMS, SPE, WPC, AAPG, SEC, and other regulatory authority guidelines will be discussed.
The course will update G&G and reservoir engineers with the newest and most accurate methods for obtaining the value of a reserve. Following the completion of this course, all participants should be able to manage deterministic and probabilistic methods, with the aim of gaining a thorough understanding of various reserve levels and their equivalence in both systems.
This is a hands-on course that will focus on why pore geometry must be the focal point for carbonate petrophysical analysis. Participants will work with petrographic information, mineralogy data, routine core analysis, capillary pressure, electrical rock properties, NMR, and open hole logs. The importance of Core-Log integration and cross calibration will be shown, as well as the reduction of uncertainty in computed reservoirs properties.
During this five day course, participants will learn about why the petrophysical property analysis is often the key to building a static reservoir description. However, in carbonates, a model that is not cross calibrated from core to logs to seismic, it may result in a large statistical uncertainty. They will also learn about carbonate pore geometry, carbonate systems, total and effective porosity, lithology, and mineralogy. A portion of this course will also focus on core-log calibration, quicklook log analysis, applied capillary pressure, and applied flow units.
This course provides an introduction to Microseismic qualitative interpretation methods. Using theory, publications, examples, and case histories the audience is introduced to engineering objectives of microseismic monitoring projects.
The interpretation of microseismic events is expanded to include Microseismic data yields information that can be used to calibrate hydraulic fracture models in conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
The value of microseismic data is fully realized when it is part of an integrated workflow where the measurements are used to calibrate fracture modeling and ultimately to production forecasting.microseismic event source parameters, source wave radiation patterns, and amplitude ratios. Case histories are presented to demonstrate the importance of these microseismic event properties in interpretations and how they can be correlated to fracture treatment data.
There are a variety of objectives for microseismic monitoring projects that extend beyond the description of hydraulic fracture geometry to include comparative studies of different completion and stimulation treatment designs for field development planning. The examples show how microseismic data can be used in a variety of common project objectives, and limitations to such interpretations.
During this course participants will learn about the pitfalls and challenges faced during the contract negotiations for access to oil and gas resources.
Using petroleum industry case studies and realistic examples participants will receive a broad-based practical introduction to managing oil and gas exploration, as well as development and production contracts. Participants will work individually and in teams to tackle a variety of industry challenges.
Participants will learn how to take hydrocarbon volumes and risks and apply a structured decision analysis process to them. The portfolio optimization process will also be discussed in order to help participants understand how to select the “best” exploration projects.
The comparison of exploration projects under different fiscal regimes will be presented by incorporating discounted cash flow and net present value. The basics of decision analysis for exploration will be reviewed using sensitivities, decision trees, expected monetary value, and the value of information.
This introductory level course will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of international accounting and financial practices in the upstream oil and gas industry. Course participants will be introduced to financial issues that are unique to the upstream industry and their accounting treatment.
Participants will learn about joint ventures including what they are, why they are used, and the accounting implications that arise when a person is involved in a joint venture.
The final part of the course will be a thorough and comprehensive review of the types of costs that occur in the various stages of an upstream project and how these costs should be managed and controlled
This course explains how risks and volumes can be assessed in a realistic manner, based on a sound understanding of the geological details of the prospect as well as of its regional geological setting and current play understanding
This intensive five-day course will deal with all aspects of project management in greenfield and brownfield environments. It will combine a review of theory and practice of key skills in a program to develop and improve the participant’s performance in a project management team where the work scope may include capital, operations, and maintenance projects. The workshop will include more detailed sessions on individual VIPs, depending on the solution to the case study that is developed by the teams. The stage gates will use simplified versions of Decision Support Packages to assist teams in taking and winning decisions in the simulation of the Capital Value Process.
The workshop style delivery will include review lectures focused to support the development of estimates, plans, and risk analysis of the case study project. The workshop will provide significant guidance to teams through the use of the Project Management Best Practice.
This course teaches you the use and limitations of a variety of production logging tools including spinner, temperature, noise, fluid injections and others tools. You will learn what results these tools yield, the interpretation assumptions that are integral to their designs, and how quality is affected by the acquisition process. You will also learn the fundamentals of production log interpretation with hands-on examples and an in-class workshop on interpreting single and two phase flow using production logs. You will learn how production logs can be used for the measurement of 3 phase fluid flow.
