Who Should Attend:
This course is suitable for Petroleum Engineers, Production Engineers, Reservoir Geologists, Drilling Engineers, Drilling Supervisors, Asset Team Members and Project Management Members.
Participants at the end of this course will be able to have a well rounded knowledge of the petroleum industry from geology, drilling, reservoir engineering to production. They will be able to understand reservoir rock properties, drive mechanisms, methods of depletion, well testing and well completion methods.
