Oil Sands Heavy Oil Essentials Course

This one day oil and gas industry training course is designed for:

a) oil and gas company non technical staff ( legal, land, accounting, IT, human resources and administrative personnel ) and technical staff new to the petroleum industry,

b) oil and gas industry support and financial personnel ( petroleum service sector, banking, investment companies, lawyers, etc. ) and

c) any individual or group interested in learning about the oil sands and conventional heavy oil.

Huge amounts of capital, resources and large numbers of personnel have been funneled into oil sands projects over the past decade. GeoHistory's Oil Sands / Heavy Oil Essentials gives participants a working overview of oil sands and heavy oil. Participants learn how oil sands and heavy oil resources are identified, evaluated, produced, refined and transported. Starting with the discovery of the Alberta Tar Sands, participants are versed on the role of changing technology and how it has impacted the production of bitumen and conventional heavy oil resources in Western Canada, from the first conventional heavy oil production, through the first commercial oil sands development, through to the birth of modern in stitu production techniques and the basics of upgrader technology. Transportation issues and environmental issues, such as surface impact, carbon footprints and the production of H2S are also addressed.

During this full day, hands on oil sands and heavy oil course participants will:

a) Learn about the oil sands and heavy oil - what they are and where we find them.

b) Learn about Western Canada's heavy oil and bitumen resources, where they fit amongst the world's remaining oil reserves and the financial benefits of oil sand development.

c) Learn how conventional heavy oil and tar sands reservoirs are developed and produced.

d) Learn how modern environments are used to understand oil sands and conventional heavy oil reservoirs.

e) See the rocks that make up the tar sands and learn how core, well logs and other technical data are used to evaluate and develop oil sands and heavy oil resources.

f) Learn about bitumen and heavy oil upgraders, synthetic oil and oil refining.

g) Learn about environmental issues such as water usage, surface impact, carbon footprints, etc.

The Oil Sands Heavy Oil Essentials Course is a follow up course to the Rocks, Records, Contracts and Reserves Course. Though not essential, it is recommended that the Rocks, Records, Contracts and Reserves Course is taken prior to the Oil Sands Heavy Oil Essentials Course.
