N443 - Essentials of Geophysics

Course Overview
This course is an introduction to geophysical technologies currently being applied to solve petroleum exploration and production problems. Participants will learn how projects are executed, how certain tools might be used to evaluate projects, and be exposed to terminology that will facilitate multidisciplinary teamwork.

This course is designed for engineers, supervisors, and those who would like to have a better understanding of how geophysical data is acquired and analyzed, and how it might impact oil and gas projects.

Participants will learn to:
•	Explain how various geophysical tools might be used to evaluate oil and gas projects.
•	Identify the limitations of certain tools.
•	Outline the stages of a seismic project and examine key milestones.
•	Participate in team discussions to insure that project objectives are met.
•	Recognize what can go wrong.

This course is offered by Nautilus (www.nautilusworld.com), a PEICE affiliated company and the world leader in Geosciences Training services.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
