About the Video

A guided tour of Oil & Gas exploration technology

In this presentation, we cover essential technical details of the processes and technologies used in finding and appraising Oil & Gas reserves that are industry standard. The content aims to provide attendees with technical knowledge and terminology within the field of hydrocarbon exploration for the purposes of oil and gas translation. The video covers:

  • Geology of hydrocarbons: petroleum system concepts, types of hydrocarbon plays and their geographical distribution
  • Rock physics: petrophysical properties, lithology relationships
  • Exploration seismology: seismic technology, survey types, seismic imaging & interpretation
  • Borehole/wireline technology: tools & measurements, petrophysical characterization
  • Putting it together: the exploration workflow, reserves & volume estimation

As such the content covers only topics related to exploration, and not to other components of the O&G industry such as production or downstream refining which may be of interest in oil and gas translation as well.
