......just think i should drop this here, well my challenge is that i don't have all the time due to my work schedule(offshore things), i can train you guys on any area of Petrel as it is in G&G (geology and geophysics) department of the E&P companies as i work for one , check me out; ng.linkedin.com/pub/osaki-lawson-jack/21/850/236/

Thanks for your magnanimity...
was gonna send you a request, didn't know we were connected already

Already connected with you. I have interest in learning how to use petrel from the scratch.

Thanks boss. I will surely contact you when Im in ph. Probably next year because Im still busy in school. Want to be conversant with the software before I go for nysc. Thanks again.

This manual is meant for those that are familiar/unfamiliar with Petrel...

This is a 2007 version...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/t60cqrnoo1p2enp/Petrel%20Manual%202007.pdf?dl=0

It was scanned and uploaded to dropbox. Take it from an experienced user, this manual is much better and as illustrative as can be, compared to the inbuilt Petrel help manual in newer petrel version. It has 21 well detailed modules and exercises to guide you and groom you in a semi-pro. (They no dey learn am finish). If you are having any challenges, feel free to share.

For those that don't have the software, can get intouch with me if you are in lagos or osaki who have been magnanimous enough to help out. Though he is stationed in PH works offshore. I'd upload a training data later on.

This offer is limited...

So is this petrel manual...




Final Note:
Your knowledge/expertise of this software is part of your beginning to oil-industry greatness. Please take this seriously!

Bros there is no seismic to well tie in this manual and that is key to interpretation( horizon picking). Anyway the manual is comprehensive,especially to beginners.......my 2 cent

You are right boss. It is mainly for beginners and those that need to brush up.

generation of synthethic seismogram can be quite laborious to be detailed in a manual. Even a velocity model too.

Some of us sef never sabi am wella grin grin grin

We'd appreciate if u cld create a 'How-to caption' to assists beginners whenever you a free to.

Thanks in advance. smiley smiley

This is a great thread and really glad to stumble on it today.

Great posts! I strongly agree with @Ifoundmyperfect line of thoughts...If you are not getting a job, then you probably do not have what employers are looking for. Aquire, sharpen and widen skill sets that oil and gas companies are looking for. As you read, you might think this post is written by someone who works in the oil and gas industry already but no...i am still looking for a job as well... cheesy But one thing that I am happy about today is that, I am more confident to talk to potential employers about my skill sets. You can not give what you do not have, so your destiny lies in your own hands to go extra miles, do not rely on your degree only but make yourself to become who employers are looking for.
I have bachelors (Nigeria) and masters (U.S) degrees in Petroleum Engineering but no job. Right now, I invest my time in learning Petroleum Engineering packages, do research on my own, read SPE papers to keep myself abreast of developments in the industry. Now I can tell myself, if no one is going to employ me, I can employ myself by being an Independent Petroleum Engineering Consultant.
I will like to be a contributor on this thread....my first contribution will be some of the course materials from HerriotWatt University in U.K. These materials are straight to the point, very good for graduates who want to brush up on basic concepts.

Reservoir Engineering
https://www.dropbox.com/s/460t6ybmdetm36e/Reservoir%20Engineering.rar?dl=0

I will be sharing some other courses and materials as well as Petroleum Engineering softwares and their training materials.

I'll definitely get in touch with you when I enter Lagos next week. I'm a graduate of Geophysics from FUTO and I'm interested in learning Petrel. Thanks for this opportunity.

@Udochee: I am assuming this thread applies to Geoscientists as well as Petroleum Engineers, @ifoundmyperfect pls correct me if am wrong. As a matter of fact Schlumberger Petrel is a Seismic to Reservoir Simulation software used by both Geoscientists and Petroleum Engineers. There is a Petrel RE (Reservoir Engineering) module in the software.

Thread title has been modified.
Petrel is also being used by Reservoir Engineers..
I have some good reservoir engineering textbook I'd be sharing. Also Eclipse software for beginners(reservoir engineer's) to get familiar with. Thanks once again for your input bro.

Wow, this thread is a real haven. I have learnt a lot from this thread. I just want to appreciate ifoundmyperfect, osaki and every one. I am a grad of petroleum engr, I am interested in reservoir engineering, I have a little knowledge about seismic interpretation, fault analysis and horizon (G&G).



Nice to meet you all

Welcome on board!

You'll get all you seek and more.

Just follow up!

@Ifoundmyperfect. What MS Windows is perfect to run Petrel?

@Ifoundmyperfect. What MS Windows is perfect to run Petrel?

From experience, Windows 7 64bit
atleast 8gig ram (anything lower than that would cause the program to run slowly)
A good graphics card (NVIDIA wld suffice)

If you can afford it, just go for a workstation laptop. They come with high ending specs. Like the one i use here at my place of work, its
32gig ram...
Re: GEOSCIENTIST & PETROLEUM ENGINEER's HAVEN - Be Empowered, Enriched & Enlightened by ifoundmyperfect: 4:03pm On Nov 17, 2014
Today i'd be sharing with you two vital ebooks...
The first may be common to practicing reservoir engineers. Its one of their "must haves"
"Fundamentals Of Reservoir Engineering" By L.P. DAKE
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ev7297fn4vlirih/Fundamentals%20Of%20Reservoir%20Engineering.pdf?dl=0
This book is being adopted by SHELL learning and development...

The second, I'd like to call it Reservoir Engineering for Dummies.
Although originally, its a 164 slides for a Geopet Master Program In Petroleum Engineering.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/q94dilozm2zo2oo/Reservoir%20Engineering%20For%20Dummies.pdf?dl=0
It is self explanatory. With straightforward pictures to aid clarity and understanding.

Good news is, these 2 great ebooks are both less than 13mb...




Enjoy Now.. Thank me later...

8gig RAM? What I have is a 2gig ram, dell windows 7 64bit. Guess that won't do.

Yes it will!
I am writing a paper on 'geostatistical application to 3D reservoir characterization: a case study of an x-field in ND'
I'd need someone grounded to review and make input when i'm done...
how can i get linked to him?
