Exploration For Oil And Gas
Module 2 discusses the difference between reserves of oil and gas and petroleum as a resource, how a reservoir is formed, what the characteristics of a viable reservoir are, the techniques used to identify potential reservoir formations the role seismic surveys play in locating potential reservoirs and why exploratory drilling is only used when the potential for a viable reservoir is high.
This course is designed for students who require a basic understanding of the petroleum industry to perform their jobs. It provides an easy-to-understand introduction to the basics of upstream and downstream activities. Students will learn how hydrocarbon deposits are formed, explored for, and produced. Next, students will learn how crude oil and gas are converted from a raw material to finished product and delivered to markets, or traded worldwide, as a commodity.
