About this Training Course
This course aims at improving the conceptual geological understanding behind predicting presence and quality distribution of potential reservoirs, starting from seismic and sequence stratigraphic principles.
The training material is derived from a variety of geological settings and comprises a mix of petroleum geology case histories and textbook material including seismic, log, core and outcrop data. The course focuses on predicting reservoir presence and reservoir effectivity.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to acquire the following:
- Key concepts of seismic / sequence stratigraphy
- Sound depositional geology concept knowledge underpinning the evaluation of reservoir distribution and effectivity
- Increased evaluation skills when assessing gross reservoir and reservoir quality parameters, based on the analysis of seismic, log, core and outcrop
- Knowledge of the interplay between structural deformation and depositional architecture in clastic reservoir settings
- Knowledge on how to make a fit for purpose reservoir correlation while avoiding common pitfalls
This course is targeting Explorationists and Petroleum Engineers working on play-based exploration and prospect generation / maturation projects as well as near-field exploration / appraisal.
Your expert course leader has 38 years of experience as Exploration Geologist for Shell globally, with field experience in a/o Egypt, NW Borneo, MENA, China, Madagascar, North Sea, Oman and The Netherlands (Shell EP Research and Training Centre in Rijswijk). He has strong evaluation and project lead skills in Play-based Exploration, Prospect Maturation, Opportunity Screening and NFE / Appraisal disciplines. He developed key geoscience skills in Seismic and Sequence Stratigraphy as well as Reservoir Characterization, including sedimentology and diagenesis. He has extensive supervisory, teaching, and coaching experience as well as a strong interest in Geoscience (Depositional Systems, Regional and Reservoir Geology) and Petroleum Geology Learning.
To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.

The content is easy to understand as the instructor did a good job to explain the basic of geology.
After participating this course, I have better interpretation now and I think my upcoming official assignments will be improved.
Geologist, Oil and Development Company
This is a practical course, it helps me to have better knowledge and able to escalate my work performance.
Sr. Geophysicist, OGDL
The course is very good. I am able to learn about reservoir from the view of sedimentology.
