How oil and gas are formed and how we locate oil on the Norwegian continental shelf.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to describe the formation of the earth and the internal and external forces that influence the earth, for example the formation of continents, mountain ranges, volcanoes, earthquakes and the different types of natural terrain: mountains, dales, beach surfaces and the sea bed. Participants will be able to recognize the most important minerals and rock types. In addition, they should be able to talk about the main geological features of the Norwegian shelf, and the methods we used to locate and determine the qualities of oil and gas fields.
Determining location on the Norwegian shelf
-The formation of the earth
-Processes that form the earth's crust
-Minerals and rock types (with emphasis on sedimentary rock types)
Formation and accumulation of petroleum:
-What is oil?
-Where and how do we find oil?
What happens when oil is produced?
Methods of location:
Magnetometry, Gravimetry, Seismology
-Geological investigations and drilling
Investigations; Drilling, Sample taking; Drill hole logging
Concepts and what they mean:
-Liquid/gas division in reservoir
-Calculation of oil and gas content
-Composition of petroleum
-Which analyses can be used when, and how
The geographic oil composition of Norway:
-Field geology of the North Sea
The Ekofisk area, Oseberg, Statfjord
-Geology of the Norwegian Sea
-Regional geology of the Barent's Sea
The course can also be arranged internally and can be tailor-made for individual companies.
