IHS Training and Support Services provide a comprehensive knowledge-transfer service across the full oilfield lifecycle. Our aim is to educate your staff, improve efficiency and accuracy and reduce your cycle times by helping to streamline your processes.
Basic Data Loading
This one-day hands-on computer training class is designed to introduce participants to Petra project structure and organization, general data loading options, and basic project and data management functions, using the Main and Mapping modules.
This two-day hands-on computer training class is designed to introduce participants to the data management and analysis tools available in Petra. These tools are easily accessed through a series of modules which smoothly interface with each other. The Main Module stores all Petra project data and acts as a gateway to the analysis modules. Several of these modules are used in this course.
This two day course is designed for participants who completed the Petra Overview Training Class and want to advance further with mapping features and gridding. A basic or intermediate skill level is required for this course. The Mapping Module is a powerful visualization tool that enables you to apply your knowledge and intuition to guide the development of conceptual models, to test and modify these models, and to create maps for use in exploration and development, acquisition evaluation, and decision-making. This class emphasizes the use of Petra, its database and computational functions, and its gridding and contouring algorithms to facilitate and amplify your creative process.
Advanced Cross Sections and Correlation Techniques
This course is designed for participants who want to advance further with cross section design and correlation techniques beyond the fundamentals learned in the Basic Overview class. It provides an in-depth focus on the Cross Section module, where log data and technology merge to illuminate your understanding of the subsurface. The Cross Section module is a powerful visualization tool that enables you to display and interpret log data in different ways and develop quality presentations. Viewing cross sections in Petra’s 3D Visualization module provides an added dimension to your interpretation.
In addition, the class provides practical experience with other Petra correlation modules. These include Slip Log, Log Correlation, Directional Well, and the Raster Log Calibration and Correlation utilities. Correlation techniques for picking tops, faults, and pay intervals are emphasized, for both vertical and directional wells.
We also deliver onsite training for companies with a need to have a large number of people trained. These classes are typically overview classes, similar to the scheduled classes, but can be customized to focus on specific topics. Please contact us if you have interest in scheduling an onsite class.
