About this Event

Course overview

The course provides a mostly non-mathematical introduction to the fundamental principles and current practices of petroleum geophysics, and is suitable for management as well as non-technical and technical staff. Participants will develop the ability to communicate intelligently with geophysicists at a basic, but practical level to improve cross- and inter- discipline integration and efficiency. Lectures are supplemented with simple exercises and case histories throughout the tailorable course.

Course Highlights

  • Geologists, Engineers and Technical Staff working with/for Geophysicists
  • Non Technical Managers
  • Technical Support Staff entering the industry
  • Students considering a career in geophysics
  • Teachers/Instructors considering adding geophysics to their subject matter
