Course Information:


This 2-day course presents practical and proven techniques for using hydrogeological principles, concepts and industry methods in exploring for subsurface oil and gas accumulations, evaluating the hydrocarbon resource potential of basins, and assessing the effects of moving formation water on oil pool size, shape, location, pressure and producability. The course draws from over twenty-five years of industry experience in Canada, the Atlantic, the North Sea, the western U.S., Ecuador, East and North Africa, and includes a blend of petroleum geology, subsurface hydrogeology, mapping, and graph construction using routinely available industry Well, Log, DST and RFT data. The textbbook for the course, "Applied Hydrodynamics in Petroleum Exploration”, was authored by the instructor.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Instructor(s): Eric Dahlberg, Ph. D.

Eric Dahlberg is an internationally recognized geologist, author, and award winning presenter, having presented over 300 seminars, worldwide, on contouring techniques, applied hydrodynamics, and computer-supported exploration during the past two decades. Dr. Dahlberg earned degrees in Geology, Sedimentary Petrology and Geochemical Exploration from Williams College and The Pennsylvania State University in 1961, 1964, and 1967. He has been active as a visiting professor at several North American Universities, and is the author of "Applied Hydrodynamics in Petroleum Exploration", now in it’s second edition.
