Course Modules

Petroleum Geology The course aims to broaden understanding of petroleum geology by explaining Geological principles & processes; describing how petroleum reservoirs and source rocks are formed.
  • Minerals and rocks.
  • Deposition & diagenesis.
  • Plate tectonics.
  • Structural geology & petroleum systems.
  • Generation, migration & trapping of petroleum.
  • Geophysics & Engineering in Exploration & Production
Basin Analysis The course aims to cover theories, methods & practice to develop & optimize basin evaluation & modelling techniques by analysing different basin types. Participants would be able to construct & interpret geo-history Subsidence curves using computer software for basin modelling. The course will also include a rigorous geophysical-petrophysical workshop for sequence Stratigraphy, reservoir characterization & development geology.
  • Introduction to the Petroleum System
  • Geomechanical Fundamentals of Basin Formation
  • Burial History Curve
  • Organic Geochemistry: Quantity, Quality, and Maturity
  • Migration Pathways
  • Reservoir-Traps-Seals and Analogs
  • Basin Classification
Gas Reservoir Management Developing broader understanding of the engineering features on gas reservoir management, together with sound engineering practices in order to maximize gas reservoir value. Full spectrums of gas reservoir engineering techniques are considered & their application to a variety of options is discussed.
  • Gas reservoir fluid properties.
  • Gas reservoir fluid flow and well testing.
  • Determination of original gas-in-place.
  • Gas flow in well bores and pipelines.
  • Prediction of future performance and ultimate recovery.
  • Reservoir management of water-drive gas reservoirs.
Integrated Petroleum Reservoir Evaluation; Field Development & Production Optimization Techniques  The modelling of the reservoir without disrupting the formation of the potentials focusing on the characteristics to numerically calculate pressure draw down/pressure build up.
  • Petrophysics
  • Volumetric, Material Balance & Decline Curves
  • PVT Analysis.
  • Vertical Lift Performance (VLP).
  • Pressure Maintenance Operations (PMO)

Petroleum Projects Economics & Risk Analysis (with spreadsheet application)


This course provides techniques of economic analysis in the oil & gas industry, such as a field development by providing you with the key skills and competencies, to make informed decisions of appraising investment opportunities by determining economic indicators and sensitivity analysis. Techniques for predicting profit, production, costs, and cash flow to enable the analyst to evaluate decision alternatives for optimum results. Understanding economic indicators, risk and uncertainty, different economic structures such as tax regimes and production sharing contracts, enhances the quality and the value of economic analysis.
  • Cash Flow Analysis
  • Economic Indicators
  • Risks and Uncertainties
  • Setting up Spreadsheet Calculation
  • Setting up Oil Field Development Model
 Petroleum Technology This course will provide participants with an overview of the oil and gas production and related facilities by providing fundamental understanding of the wide range of oil and gas production handling and treatment equipment. The training gives emphasis of the calculation of reserves, fluids properties from reservoir through gathering network.
  • Energy Types
  • Upstream Operations
  • Downstream Operations
  • Oil Storage & Transportation
  • The Role of Technology
