Development Geology

Face-to Face Course

November 4 to 8, 2024

Duration : 5 days

Level : Basic

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Engineers, Geologists, Geophysicists and all those involved in reservoir appraisal and development projects

OBJECTIVES: A profitable development of an oil or gas field starts with a good understanding of the subsurface. As part of a PE team the development geologist interprets subsurface data and provides geological models that form the basis for development planning.

During this course the “development life cycle” starting with the gathering of geological data, the interpretation thereof, the preparation of geological models and the quantification of subsurface uncertainty are discussed. The development geologist is equipped with the skills to construct these models. Attention is also given to the impact on field operations (drilling and infrastructure) as on field management during its entire lifecycle.


At the end of the course participants will be able to understand geological concepts, construct maps and sections and validate computer-generated interpretations.

In addition they will:

  • be able to calculate subsurface volumes and assess the uncertainties..
  • be able to plan appraisal/development wells and assess their economic value.
  • better understand the role of a the various PE disciplines in the development life cycle.

Dedicated exercises and case studies are included throughout the course to ensure participants understand the concepts discussed.

Course content includes:

  • Historical overview of the development of Hydrocarbon resources
  • Methods and workflow of Field Development Plans
  • Fundamental concepts related to all aspects of Petroleum Geology
  • Acquisition and application of data (Seismic, Logging, Coring, Production) during all development stages.
  • Basics of subsurface planning and execution (Drive Mechanism, Drilling and completion of wells)
  • Overview of Hydrocarbon resource classification and calculation of HC volumes.
