|Development Geology - DG|
|Production Geology for Other Disciplines - PGD|
|Petroleum Geology for Early Career Geoscientists and Engineers - PGGE|
|Operations Geology - OG|
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): E. Keasberry
|At the end of this integrated course, participants will be able to contribute effectively to the preparation of planned wells and their concurrent operations during the exploration, appraisal, and development phases. As geoscientists, petroleum engineers, well engineers, and production technologists are increasingly assembled in asset, project, or operational teams they must not only understand each other in technical matters, but should also contribute to each other's efforts in these aspects: a driller should know why it is important to cut a core or log a particular interval despite potential drilling problems, and geoscientists should understand drilling operations and their inherent hazards and problems. All should be able to understand and prepare daily drilling reports with a full appreciation of the various subjects. Cuttings, cores, logs, and well tests should be analyzed, cross-correlated, and compiled to mesh with prognoses and existing data to effectively manage the impact on the field development plan. Correct procedures in tendering and contracting should be followed to minimize the duration of the operations and to maximize the quality of the operations services provided. Understanding of all operations should greatly improve the effectiveness of the Operations Geologist. Note: A basic knowledge of geology and/or petroleum geology is advisable if not required to fully appreciate the course contents.|
All geoscientists, petroleum engineers, well engineers, and technical personnel, who in the course of their career will attend or direct subsurface and wellsite operations.
You Will Learn:
MR. JOHN KEASBERRY is an exploration geologist and partner in J&M GeoScience Services. In a 30-year career span he worked as such in Ethiopia, the UK, Ireland, Canada, the US, Turkey, the Middle East, the Far East, Ecuador, Norway and the Netherlands, with multiple companies including Placid, Barrick Petroleum, Santa Fe, Statoil, Unocal, Shell, and numerous small independents as an employee or consultant. He has been involved in the exploration and development phases of the petroleum development, from new ventures and asset acquisition, seismic interpretation, basin analysis, appraisal to farm-out and production. During a 7-year stretch with Nedlloyd Energy as Manager Exploration and New Ventures he was involved extensively in asset evaluation, acquisition and farm-ins. From 1997 through 2004 he was employed by Shell as a Course Director responsible for their integrated subsurface course covering the main subsurface disciplines from geology to production technology and developing geoscience courses. His lecturing experience is mainly in petroleum-, wellsite- and operations geology, but also covers petrophysics, reservoir and well engineering. He has conducted numerous geological and integrated field courses, most recently in Belgium and Germany. He received a BSc in Geology and a MSc in Geology and Applied Geophysics from the University of Leiden, Netherlands.
