Course Agenda    Register

Attend EMI's Upstream Oil & Gas Fundamentals course and understand the upstream petroleum industry, from exploration through appraisal, reserves recognition, development, and production to the sales transaction point:

  • Understand the basic terminology and concepts of the Exploration and Production sector of the oil and gas industry.
  • Gain specific detail regarding petroleum formation and geoscience techniques for discovering it.
  • Learn about current drilling technology including horizontal drilling and hydrofacturing used for shale gas as well as drill rigs and techniques for deep-sea targets.
  • Appreciate how field development decisions are evaluated, including reservoir engineering considerations for oil vs. gas fields.
  • Understand fundamental methods of recovering the optimal production from a field by waterflooding and enhanced oil recovery techniques and the fundamentals of surface operations and transportation by pipelines, marine vessels, train, truck and barge.

Course Highlights

Upstream Oil & Gas Fundamentals will introduce you to the formation of oil and gas, then move on to how exploration and reservoir engineering activities bring the oil and gas to surface, and finally end up with at how the surface facilities operate just ahead of the sales transaction point. You will learn about risks, technologies, investment decisions and operations in one of the world’s most important industries.

Topics covered include:

  • The four requirements for an oil and gas reservoir
  • Land lease acquisition and obligations of the operator
  • Exploration program planning and goals
  • Geologic risk and how it is quantified
  • Drilling and how a well is planned
  • Vertical vs. directional vs. horizontal drilling choices
  • The importance of appraisal work
  • What are the key issues in determining how a field is developed
  • Definitions of proven, probable and possible volumes
  • Reservoir engineering to optimize the recovery
  • Special techniques to recovery more oil, i.e., waterflooding, miscible gas injection, polymer-surfactant injection and thermal processes
  • Where petroleum economics impacts the discovery-appraisal-development-production stages
  • The theory of peak oil production … why prices are going upward

Actual examples from industry will be used to illustrate decision processes. We'll deliver a high-level view of the technologies employed by the industry, giving even the non-technical attendee a feel for the business. Ample time will be provided for Q&A and interaction with the instructor with 30-plus years of industry experience.
