About this Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

Pyrobitumen, often referred to simply as bitumen or a tar-mat is a common problem in the Jurassic Arab C and D formations in the Arabian Gulf but it may also occur in other formations, including the prolific Thamama. The distribution of the bitumen is not pervasive and it may be difficult to predict. This can be a problem if it impacts fluid movement in the reservoir. This Micro VILT will examine the likely origins of Mesozoic pyrobitumen in the Arabian Gulf and discuss possible controls on the distribution. This course will use published examples to illustrate the variations in distribution and effects and will attempt to define methods to predict the distribution in any field.   Micro VILT Group Pricing: SGD$1,200 per person / USD$ 889 per person (Minimum 5 persons per group session) For more details on pricing for larger groups or customisation of course outline, call us at +65 6741 9927 or email [email protected]   Delivery of this Micro VILT: The Micro VILT will be delivered through Zoom, MS Teams or equivalent video conference platforms in combination with other online interactive training tools.   Micro VILT Duration: The Micro VILT will be delivered online in 1 session comprising 4 hours, with 2 breaks.
