                      We provide  basic capability development in following areas:


1.Seismic Acquisition design and operation  

The objective of the course is to create and then develop an understanding of the role of one of the most effective tools in both exploration and development phases. This course develops ability in the analytical aspects of seismic field acquisition, particularly to the design of customized seismic strategy, field tests, quality control techniques and cost efficiency and manage the operation of the seismic acquisition process and implement very accurate and strict HSE measures. Using software design wizards to verifying any seismic acquisition design parameters. QCING seismic attributes for optimizing seismic acquisition design.

2.Seismic Data Processing  

The objective of the to create and then develop an understanding and familiarity of the theoretical and geophysical background of processing algorithms, Quality Control and Quality assurances for each processing step to ensure having optimally seismic data product from seismic data quality perspectives. High end seismic data processing FWI and Tomography Q Depth Imaging   High end seismic processing that could help in development stage of the oil/gas field through knowing highly advanced seismic data processing to interpret the seismic data looking for structural trapes to stratigraphic trap which is more challenging to seismic resolution. High resolution velocity model will reveal complex geology imaging with very good clarity. The ability to conduct innovative seismic QC/QA for seismic data processing time and imaging to have outstanding seismic product. Moreover, seismic reservoir characterization QCing of any seismic data processing time and depth imaging.

4- Seismic Interpretation. 

 The objective of the course properly interprets the data and give the true picture of the reservoir and its actual extension they have to have knowledge about the area petroleum system and utilize all the available information and gather them before start clicking buttons. Minimizing drill risk or gas escape hazards will be achieved if seismic interpretation is trustable and fault and fracture liniments will be interpreted accurately and calibrated with well logs especially FMI logs.

5- Seismic Stratigraphy:

In East and west Africa offshore seismic stratigraphic technology could permit identification of oil/gas bearing rocks of upper Triassic, Jurassic and lower Cretaceous sequences in strata and their identification requires the integration of seismic data with lithological and environmental facies, biostratigraphy, radiometric and well logs information. Nowadays stratigraphic interpretation needs oriented acquisition, processing, and interpretation. Tailored acquisition, processing for stratigraphic trapes are essential to give better vertical resolution (the thickness of the unit) and horizontal resolution (the areal size of the features).

6- Seismic Reservoir Characterization:

Seismic Reservoir characterization is to gain the value from seismic resolution beyond the imaging to gain petrophysical parameters of the reservoir rocks such as porosity, fluid saturation and pore pressure

prediction, Fracture characterization is the way to place the well trajectory properly to de-risking the drilling operation and help in the well casing design for highly pressurized deep targets. Fracture is the main corridor of porosity of tight rocks and study its intensity and orientation is another adding value of the seismic recording nowadays than in the previous decades.

7- Exploration Geology:

Exploration Geologist will sustain the geophysical experience if the Basin and Petroleum Systems Modelling (BPSM) which has a bright future as the oil and gas industry looks increasingly to mature field development. Integration of BPSM with various disciplines such as Petrophysics, and reservoir engineering which will help maturing the unconventional petroleum systems as well. Exploration geology is steering the searching of oil/gas prospectively potential areas integrating well information, logs, cores or analogues outcrops of the same geological column with seismic and drill exploration wells is an optimum working flow for increasing the exploration plays.

8- Reservoir Geology/Engineering:

Reservoir engineering is another wide experience of the worldwide engineering and monitor the reservoir performance and precisely monitoring the reservoir surveillance through conducting 3D/ 4D time lapse seismic acquisition and track accurately the injectivity of fluid or gas will improve the reservoir performance and lead to more successful perforation. Proper Statics model, Dynamic model history match, well completion will help increasing OOIP, IOR, EOR, Simulation.

9-Formation Evaluation.

Core analysis and laboratory measurements of saturation and rock properties and their application to reservoir studies.

10-Prospect, Evaluation, Risks, and Volumetric calculations.

For geoscientists working in exploration, for prospect portfolio analysts and for their direct supervisors. It is also a very instructive course for staff from disciplines working closely with exploration staff, such as reservoir engineers, Petro physicists and geophysicists. In order to having good understanding of the essentials for realistic risk and volume assessments of exploration prospects. A well-considered and realistic assessments for prospects to be working on, and to understand and constructively challenge risk and volume assessments.

11-Sedimentology and Depositional Environments of Onshore and offshore deposits.

The theory and application of sedimentology and depositional environments of onshore/offshore East African Basin. Detailed petroleum system study utilizing all existing information; geology, geophysics and geotectonic stress regime could help to reveal untapped oil and gas reserves and establish a road map of developing leads and prospects.

12- Prospect and Play Assessment.

All exploration team members and leaders including geologists, geophysicists, geochemists, analysts, reservoir engineers, economists, planners and managers who make business decisions based upon exploration data. To provide knowledge and unique tools for practical, systematic, predrill assessment of potentially recoverable oil and gas and to use the best available methods with trap volumetric and hydrocarbon charge for prospects, and potential numbers and sizes of prospects for plays.

                                      Drilling Engineering and completion Engineering

13- Offshore Systems.

14-Well Design and Engineering.

Well Design and Engineering integrates all major well design technologies from pre-spud to TD. The single most important goal of the course is to draw the linkages between the design topics and to leave the participants with an understanding that each decision has influence on those that follow. On the last day, each team presents their completed design before the class and an invited panel of industry professionals

15-Completion & Workovers.

To emphasize the role of engineers and field operators in planning and executing the workover operations to maintain and increase field production and thus add to the profitability and recoverable reserves. It also emphasizes the significance of the team concept as a factor in optimizing operations success.
