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 Explorationâ€, was authored by the instructor.
A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
Fluids, Subsurface Pressures and Gradients
Formation Pressure Measurements, DST and RFT
Fluid Environments, Flow and No-Flow
Potential Energy in Fluids and Electrical Analogs
Rock Grain Systems, Pore Spaces, and Capillarity
Mechanics of Abnormal Pressures
