sorry, ve bin very busy wif academic work nd my thesis. I ll b roundin up my prog by november. I ll share my experience soon. Fellow Geoscientist nd pet engrs, u can check this out -www.chevening.com/nigeria. Its a british post graduate scholarship. Nt sure d link is correct. U can as wel google chevening scholarship nigeria.

I wish you success as your program is coming to an end. Shalom

Hi guys am so happy to meet my fellow. Geologist
Actually I have bee looking for a forum like this.
I am a geologist with strong competence in reservoir modelling and petrophysicis. This is because I did my Msc in that area as well as my 12 months internship in shell , but after the internship I got another job as a field engr majoring in coil tubing services which is an aspect of well intervention. Pls guys dnt get me wrong, I love the experience as I often go to the rigs offshore to render some services, I also acquired International Well Control Certifications as well as Basic offshore certification. I have put in 18 months with them.
However I just got admision in USA for a masters program in petroleum geosciences I will be majoring in petrophysics. ( Which where I have passion for)
My question is, am I on the right track since my background is in geosciences? Do I have future in this Present job since I didn't study engineering,
plz I am in need of advice cos am confused.

hello you are on the right track,it all depends on your passion ok.go for your master in usa and become a big boy,which school are u doing your master?and how did u get your shell internship so that all geoscientist can partake in your experience,but all the same congrat......

Thanx for the reply
My passion lies in petrophysics, I will be heading to univ of.texas. Arlington.
I applied for the internship postion when it came out, it runs annually and they always advertise arroud march.
The beauty of it is that u will be exposed. While the funny aspecT is that they dnt retain people

@Imag5......Am really impressed at the originator of this forum. Am working on my MSc thesis too but on Organic geochemistry..... I was looking at JC international in PH and was interested in the drilling and well intervention courses.....are they supposed to be done in conjunction with an HSE program for better opportunities?

Imag5, thanks for creating this thread. Many people often do not know what bearing to take due to limited exposure.

What would you advice for an HND because I know some of the roles undertaken by Bsc holders may not be available to HND holder in same field.

How can one boost his prospects or chances? I studied Petroleum Engineering Technology,PTI.

Since you are based in PH, I will visit you after service.

I will do the HSE after service and will contact you for directions from time to time as a mentor.

Thanks.

imag5: yes it is very possible with chemical engineering you are on track,all you need is go for your masters in PE or go for drilling certificate course like well completion,drilling engineering,mud,coring and so many, there is a school in usa called ACE mud,and oklahoma drilling school,one in canada maritime drilling academy,google should do the rest.....cheers
thanks bro,cant I do those certification in nigeria?

yes it very possible to do it nigeria or abroad but it very expensive a course here is about 500k in nigeria,but abroad you should be talking about a million naira due to fact you have to pay for flight and accomodation when you get there ....or you can go to IFP.com use google first you see different petroleum course in france and other country...cheers

I have heard of IPS but haven't taken time to thoroughly look into it.

Do they accept HND holders?
harde2lah: hello engineers and geoscientist, how are you all doing in your endeavors? I hope life is treating u well. Its not easy, but you just have to keep trying and putting your best until you get to where u wanna be.
For those who don't really know much about IPS. IPS means Institute of Petroleum Studies (IPS), Port Harcourt. Ranked no. 1 in Nigeria for Petroleum engineering graduate program, IPS is an affiliate institution of IFP School, France, and is sponsored by NNPC/Total JV. IPS is an interesting place to be for young graduates that majored in engineering. IPS also has a geosciences school, but I dont really have much info about that. To get in is neither simple nor hard. you just have to pass through the shadow of the valley of death, but fear no evil cos God is with you. you can also visit the website www.ipsng.org for more info. Will still share my experience when am less busy. Nice day!! if u need more info pls lets me know. Please let me know if there are any grammatical error(s) in my post as i do not have the time to proof-read what i typed. thanks!!
