The latest addition to Exprodat’s ArcGIS training programme, Basin and Play Analysis using ArcGIS, teaches participants how the powerful tools within ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Spatial Analyst can be used to enhance basin analysis and play fairway mapping as part of the process of petroleum exploration. The course is available now for the ArcGIS 10 platform.
Chris Jepps, Exprodat's Technical Director, said "We developed the Basin and Play Analysis course in response to the excellent feedback our ‘Play Fairway Mapping’ course received from the market. Both courses are essentially a way for oil and gas ArcGIS users to learn how to use ESRI's ArcGIS Desktop and Spatial Analyst tools using petroleum industry data, workflows and best practices, but we felt that while the PFM course served some explorationists well with its focus on specific exploration workflows, the ArcGIS tools could actually be applied more widely.
So the new ‘Basin and Play Analysis’ course covers more ground, adding ArcGIS-based analyses such as interpolation, creaming curves, field size distributions, license block statistics and migration pathway mapping to a core of play analysis modules like editing, probability mapping and stick plots. If you're an oil and gas geoscientist who wants to learn how to use Esri's ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension for exploration activities, then this is the course for you."
