Sample Course
Outcropping Oil Fields- From Seeps to the Subsurface©
Analogues for Acquisition, Development, and Prospecting

Participants spend the trip evaluating "Billion Barrel" oil fields during a week of field trips and exercises including lease sales, purchase opportunities, and prospect evaluation. Exercises and data provides analogues for giant domestic and international projects.

This trip offers a rare opportunity to tie outcropping oil fields to subsurface production and to tie outcrop facies directly to well logs. This unique venue allows the group to discuss topics as diverse as seeps, basin analysis, and source rock modeling to reservoir engineering for secondary and tertiary recovery.

The class is designed for multidisciplinary teams and experienced individuals from all areas of petroleum exploration, development, or production. The trips and exercises are designed to serve as an exceptional teambuilding opportunity for newly formed or existing project groups and have successfully integrated participants from new hire interns to research PHDs to 35-year experienced engineers and major company management.
