Geology and Geophysics for Other Disciplines (2 days)

Duration
: 2 days

Audience: The course is suitable for new entries to the petroleum industry in a variety of professions, junior geoscientists, engineers, business professionals, investment advisers, analysts, regulators, government employees, accountants, lawyers, community leaders and the general public.

Course Description: The course is presented in simple language with many explanatory graphics as well as animations and videos. You will learn the fundamental concepts of geology and geophysics and how they are applied to finding and developing oil and gas fields. You will also learn the essential aspects of unconventional 'shale' oil and gas exploration and development that has revolutionized the North American petroleum industry and is spreading to other parts of the world.
