Training

We offer a number of training courses to suit all levels of experience, learning objectives, budgets and technical transfer aims.  Each course is relevant to geoscientists and reservoir engineers and we recommend a mixed audience to ensure a rich dialog among the attendees and to ensure consistency of analog application across functions.  Courses are offered through public or in-house options, given either online or in person.  Onsite-training can also be tailored to both individual and company requirements.

 


Foundation Module Training

Summary
This course will teach your users how to search for applicable global reservoir analogs.  Doing so will require an introduction to the DAKS IQ classification system and the feature functionality.  Methods for extracting insight from the reports, table of parameters and production curves available in the Foundation Module will be presented.  Some DAKS IQ experience is preferred, however this is not a prerequisite.  All learning will be reinforced through a series of individual and group exercises that provide the user with real life examples of how analogs can add tangible value across E&P workflows.

Who should attend
The emphasis of the course is on geoscience and reservoir engineering but it will be of value to all subsurface staff who are involved in technical evaluations and decision making.


Analysis Module Training

Summary
This course will show your users how to integrate the application of global reservoir analogs into a repeatable workflow through analysis.  Extracting valuable insight from the applicable global reservoir analog population will be reinforced with exercises that guide the user through the DAKS IQ Analysis tools.  These include histograms, crossplots and benchmarking.  Advanced search tools and target input will also be explained and used around the core DAKS IQ classification system. The DAKS IQ Foundation course is a prerequisite for attendees.

Who should attend
The emphasis of the course is on geoscience and reservoir engineering but it will be of value to all subsurface staff who are involved in technical evaluations and decision making.


Maximizing the Impact and Application of Analogs

As your users become more familiar with DAKS IQ and the use of applicable global reservoir analogs, they will undoubtedly want to learn how to really exploit the value of the DAKS IQ platform and analogs.

Summary
Analogs form a critical part of technical analysis and decision making across all areas of the E&P lifecycle. They are used across a range of activities for example to give confidence to interpretations, generate and calibrate exploration prospects, input data to reservoir models, benchmark reservoir performance, identify best practices for reservoir enhancement and support resource booking. The aim of this dynamic interactive course is to develop a complete understanding of the practical application of analogs across the E&P cycle. The course will improve the participant’s knowledge and skills to allow them to make the most powerful and compelling use of analogs in technical analysis and decision making.

Who should attend
Everyone and anyone who believes in learning from the production histories and geological studies of existing discoveries, outcrop and modern depositional settings.


Knowledge Capture Training

Summary
This training course will cover every aspect of knowledge capture, from applying our industry recognized classification system, to learning our standardized definitions for more than 400 parameters through to implementing best practice quality assurance.  Using the intuitive input tool, you will learn how to map your corporate knowledge to the classification system for use in finding applicable global reservoir analogs.  You will have the opportunity to complete a knowledge capture certification program.

Who should attend
The emphasis of the course is on the knowledge capture and how to apply the classification system properly to your corporate data and how to use the input tool effectively.  It will be valuable for all staff who are involved in the knowledge capture lifecycle to attend.
