|Evaluating and Developing Heavy Oil Resources - HOED|
|Overview of Heavy Oil Resources - HOOV|
|Geological and Geophysical Characterization of Heavy Oil Reservoirs - HORC|
|Field Study-Heavy Oil Resources - HOFS|
Discipline: Integrated - Heavy Oil
Duration: 3 days
Instructor(s): Gary Massingill
|This course is geologically and technically focused but instructed in such a manner that all disciplines and experience levels will understand. Mining and in-situ production of bitumen from the Athabasca oil sand region is currently a major contributor to the world's oil production. These technologies are reasonably recent commercial applications and the future levels of production face uncertainty because of highly debated environmental challenges. The field course takes the participant to the rock; explaining complex relationships and issues emanating from the depositional and structural framework.|
Anyone of any discipline who wants a hands-on understanding of the Athabasca Oil Sands.
You Will Learn:
DR. GARY L. MASSINGILL has 35 years of industry experience as a geologist with a mixed background that includes research, exploration and production of uranium, gold, conventional oil and gas and unconventional resources, both oil sands and source shale plays. He has worked for Marathon Oil, Western Oil Sands, Cambridge Mineral Resources, Newmont Mining, Santa Fe Pacific Gold, Blazer Oil and Gas, Exxon, US Steel and New Mexico Bureau of Mines and Mineral Resources. Generally, his focus has been applied exploration, but his primary disciplines have been previously considered at times as a sedimentologist, structural geologist or researcher. He has served as the Director, Chief Geologist and President of companies. His entrepreneurial spirit is still active and he is currently involved in several ventures primarily focused on the development of oil sand resources. He has a BS and MS from West Texas State University and a PhD from the University of Texas at El Paso.
