The course covers the principles of petroleum geology and the methods, concepts, technologies and language employed in subsurface analysis. In addition, and as a key learning objective, the course elucidates the role of petroleum geology at various decision gates throughout the field life cycle from gaining access to opportunity through exploration, appraisal, development, early and late production to decommissioning. It examines how geological considerations contribute to key decision-making processes and how the evaluation and management of subsurface uncertainties need to be considered and integrated at the various project stages of an oil or gas field. The links to other disciplines and the methods of integration and collaboration are emphasized.
