This course aims to introduce students to the concept of the petroleum system, demonstrating how all the elements are necessary for a conventional accumulation of hydrocarbons. It will deal particularly with the petroleum geology aspects of exploration and show how explorationists make predictions of hydrocarbon volumes in frontier areas. The course looks in detail at reservoir characterisations and the factors that influence the performance of hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoirs.

|Determine shale volume, net sand, porosity, and saturation. Calculate net to gross using log cut‐offs and understand the importance of the Archie Equation.
|To produce , and use, a contour map. Interpret qualitatively, and in some aspects quantitatively, the characteristics of a reservoir section from wire line logs and petrophysical properties.
|Understand:Importance of sources in the formation of hydrocarbon accumulations. Different scales of data that come from geophysical reflection surveying.
|Gain transferable skills Write a factsheet report and communicate effectively . Demonstrate problem solving skills and teamwork. Apply petrophysics concepts to the development of hydrocarbon fields
