Field Work
The principles of petroleum geology are best illustrated by surface exposures. The same holds for petroleum engineering processes such as pipline facilities, drilling operations and refining operations. Each students will spend two weeks in the summer in the Central Rocky Mountains and Colorado Plateau region on a field study. The field trips will involve studying cores, outcrops, landforms, and producing field operations. The data and insight from the culminating field site in the Green River Basin of Wyoming will be integrated into the project for CH EN 6156 Reservoir Simulation, which will immediately follow the Field Study.
