Training in Geochemistry and Petroleum Systems analysis

 

All training can be tailored to the client needs and they are offered in English or Spanish

Geochemical Foot Printing & Utility in Basin Modeling 

Course content

This course emphasizes the multi-disciplinary approach for the evaluation of petroleum potential of basins and plays. It focuses on the integration of geochemical information into the geologic framework to estimate hydrocarbons available for entrapment within a basin.

Learning outcome

Knowledge: 
Participants will learn basic concepts of petroleum geochemistry and how to apply them into modern procedures of the numerical simulation of hydrocarbon generation to enable them to evaluate hydrocarbon charge. Lecture and workshop sessions alternate throughout the course.

Skills: 
Students will use most common geochemical tools and simple calculations to simulate subsidence and thermal history and learn to use any 1D basin modelling program.

Fundamentals of Basin Modeling

A four hour course highlighting the fundamentals of Basin Modeling.

 

This is the module I lecture at the University of Houston (Quantitative Hydrocarbon Generation and Migration Analysis for Play Evaluation and Prospect Ranking) to introduce the students into their exploration exercise.

Course content

This course set the foundation to create a Basin Model for the evaluation of petroleum potential in conventional or unconventional settings.

This course is divided in four main modules to describe:

Introduction and leveling knowledge

The physical model

The thermal model

The generative model
