ONLINE: Petroleum Geostatistics - Integrating Data for Reservoir Modelling and Simulation (GEO907)


    This course will teach you how to use geostatistical tools to create high quality petroleum reservoir models. Fundamental techniques such as kriging and sequential simulation will be covered along with more recent developments, e.g. Boolean methods and multipoint geostatistics.

    Course Structure: 5 modules of max. 4 hours each, delivered over 5 days

    Course Level: Skill
    Duration: 5 days
    Instructor: Todd Hoffman

    Designed for you, if you are...

    • A geoscientist or an engineer who wants to use geostatistics to create better reservoir models

    How we build your confidence

    • This course covers some theory but is mainly focused on practical applied procedures that can be used to create models.
    • You will employ an easy-to-use modelling software to put many of the techniques into practice by building basic models.
    • The class culminates with a multipart project that incorporates much of what was learned during the week.
