Event description


This is an entry level course that teaches you how to use Esri's ArcGIS Pro for oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) activities whilst working with petroleum industry spatial data and workflows. This course allows you to explore the benefits in applying Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to your petroleum workflows whilst exploring the functionality available in the new ArcGIS Pro application.

Besides using the basic functionality offered by ArcGIS for Desktop that allows you to integrate spatial and non-spatial data and produce information for decision-making, ArcGIS Pro also allows you to store as many maps and layouts as you need in the same project, view 2D and 3D data simultaneously and create tasks to automate workflows. You can also package your projects to collaborate with others, or share your work as web maps and web layers. ArcGIS Pro can use local data, as well as content from ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS.

In addition to this, ArcGIS Pro is a 64-bit multithreaded application, delivering the kind of high performance that G&G staff in the petroleum sector have come to expect.


No geospatial knowledge is assumed beyond that acquired through the use of geological maps. It is not essential to have petroleum E&P sector knowledge however; this course is geared towards assisting participants to implement E&P workflows geospatially.

Intended audience

Geoscience professionals and support staff who are going to be using GIS tools and E&P project staff who need a basic understanding of GIS in order to manage geospatial projects using ArcGIS Pro.

This course is aimed at Geoscience professionals and support staff who wish to learn how to undertake their current ArcGIS for Desktop E&P specific workflows within ArcGIS Pro.


  • Focuses on how to manage E&P workflows using GIS and identifies the advantages - this is not a generic ArcGIS Pro migration course

  • Two-day intensive course

  • Instructor-led hands-on learning by ‘doing’

  • Trainer demonstrations and course validation questions

  • Provides the basis for learning more advanced techniques

Participants will

  • Learn fundamental ArcGIS Pro functionality

  • Work with E&P datasets and apply typical E&P workflows

  • Understand Esri's spatial data storage terminology

  • Learn how to import ArcMap map documents into ArcGIS Pro

  • Create an ArcGIS Pro project, containing a 2D Map, 3D Scene and a Layout

  • Capture a geoprocessing workflow in a Task

  • Create and share a Web Map

Learning outcomes

  1. Become familiar with the ribbon interface, views and navigation tools available in ArcGIS Pro

  2. Describe and compare the file extensions used in ArcGIS Pro for creating projects, maps, layouts and layers

  3. Convert co-ordinates stored in a table to points on a map

  4. Create side-by-side 2D Maps and 3D Scenes to display depth, wellbore and field data

  5. Use the fields designer tools to manage fields, domains and subtypes

  6. Explore the editing tools in ArcGIS Pro by creating and amending fault lines and play fairway polygons

  7. Customise the ribbon interface by adding a geoprocessing tool

  8. Create a task from a workflow and modify an existing task using the Task pane and Task Designer

  9. Export data to produce layer, map and project packages for storing and sharing data

  10. Create and share content using ArcGIS Online
