Basic Petroleum Engineering Practices - BE

Course

About the Course

This course is a basic introduction to most aspects of the Petroleum Engineering discipline, which includes reservoir, production, and drilling engineering as well as related topics. This course lays the groundwork for further specialized training in advanced courses for oil company and service company personnel. The course focuses on the field and application approach and includes classroom exercises, fundamental engineering problems, and basic field exercises. Basic Petroleum Engineering Practices will set the foundation for technical professionals with regards to technology and its engineering applications. The course starts out with a brief introduction of the history and current state of the oil and gas industry. Next, reservoir fluids, petroleum geology, and petroleum reservoirs are discussed. Then, various facets of exploration technology, drilling engineering and operations, well completion technology, and production technology are covered before finishing with surface processing of produced fluids.

"This was a great 'across-the-board' 5 day school!" - Senior Geologist, United States
