Multi-client Training Courses

Hartland 1956x652


Multi-Client small group courses available


IGI will be holding small group 5 day Basin and Petroleum Systems modelling and Petroleum Geochemistry training courses in March 2018 at our offices in Devon, UK.


Granary June 2016


These courses will be for 2 - 5 attendees, enabling a very interactive learning experience.  

Please see below for the modules covered on these courses.


5 Day Basin & Petroleum Systems Modelling Course

12 - 16 March 2018

Location: Devon, UK

The 5 Day Basin & Petroleum Systems Modelling (BPSM) course is aimed at petroleum geoscientists who wish to understand the concepts and become familiar with the practices of BPSM. We use Zetaware & TecMod products during the course (although the course is not software specific) and run a sequence of comprehensive workshops that cover the main aspects of the BPSM workflow.

List of modules covered:

  • Introduction to basin and petroleum systems modelling  (BPSM)
  • Fundamental 1-D modelling inputs and constraints
  • Thermal model calibration: temperature and maturity data
  • Overview of  sedimentary basins tectonic settings and geothermics
  • Rift basins forming processes, subsidence and heatflow
  • Source rock deposition, kerogen types and organofacies
  • Source rock kinetics and hydrocarbon expulsion potential
  • Introduction to 3-D basin modelling software
  • Hydrocarbon generation & expulsion
  • Driving forces and styles of hydrocarbon migration
  • Principles and methodologies of risk analysis in BPSM

List of workshops:

  • Building 1-D models, inputs and constraints
  • Calibrating 1-D models in the context of the basin
  • Using pseudo-wells to rapidly assess the prospectivity of a basin
  • Investigating rift basin forming processes and thermal models in 2-D
  • 2-D model of a Viking Graben transect (North Sea)
  • 2-D model of a Vøring basin transect (Norwegian Margin)
  • Parameterization of source rocks
  • Building map-based 3-D models
  • Thermal calibration of map-based 3-D models
  • Model hydrocarbon migration in Trinity (T-3)
  • Model phase & volumes of trapped hydrocarbons (PVT models)
  • Model assessment, uncertainty and risk analysis
  • Data management and visualization

5 Day Petroleum Geochemistry Course

5 - 9 March 2018

Location: Devon, UK

This 5-day Oil and Gas Petroleum Geochemistry course is intended for petroleum geoscientists with some basic geochemical knowledge but who wish to understand higher level geochemical reports, particularly those involving molecular and isotope data (e.g. biomarkers, gases etc.), or would like to begin to make interpretations of such data themselves.

List of Modules covered:

  • Introduction To Petroleum Geochemistry
  • Sampling And Geochemical Analyses
  • Introduction To Molecular Geochemistry
  • Biomarkers In Oils & Source Rocks
  • Biomarkers: Origin And Source
  • Biomarkers: Depositional Environment
  • Biomarkers: Source Rock Age
  • Maturity Assessment Using Molecular Data
  • Petroleum Alteration: Migration And Fractionation
  • Petroleum Alteration: Biodegradation
  • Reservoir Geochemistry
  • Oil Mixing & Contamination
  • Stable Isotopes In Petroleum Geochemistry
  • Oil-Oil And Oil-Source Correlations: Theory
  • Oil – Oil And Oil Source Correlations: Case Histories
  • Introduction to Gas Geochemistry
  • Generation and Alteration of Hydrocarbon Gases
  • Isotope Geochemistry –  Modelling source & maturity of HC gases
  • Isotope Geochemistry –  Modelling mixing & alteration of HC gases

Appropriate workshop modules are also included in the course
