Prerequisite: GEO 5525.
Meets with GEO 6530. This course presents an open-ended petroleum exploration scenario where students must apply the methods and approaches encountered in previous PICP offerings. Industry-standard software will be used in a collaborative, team-based working environment to identify and characterize prospects from an industry dataset. Students will rely on their fundamental knowledge of geology and geophysics to generate prospects and will investigate the impact of (1) hydrocarbon in place estimation methods and other reservoir engineering concepts, (2) risk evaluation, and (3) economics, land issues and legal implications of evaluating petroleum plays and prospects. Offered second half of spring semester.
