Common Sense Training in the Field to Help Geoscientists Make Simple Solutions for Complex Issues
We can provide a wide range of training formats to help students and teams better understand the impacts of faults in groundwater and hydrocarbons. Group workshops can be used to bring teams together to considers the role of faults on specific projects. Our favourite is field-based training courses where we get to resolve a wide range of issues at the outcrop.
OUTCROP AND FAULTRISK OIL AND GAS ASSET TEAM TRAINING
Structural geology can be mastered by any subsurface geologist or engineer. Over 25 years, we have developed a training course that covers theory along with real-world case study exercises. Students also participate in group scenario-based risking exercises to stretch and reinforce learning.
If possible a field training component is added to the training course. This cements learning and helps build actual multidisciplinary teams.
In the case of in house-house training course, practical exercises can be based on the company's own prospects and activities. Participants then produce a powerpoint report of their project at the end of the training.
GEOLOGY AND HYDROGEOLOGY FOR STRUCTURAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENTS
For many professionals in environmental consultancies, mining or oil and gas companies developing an EIS is a key part of their work. In many scientist and engineers are drawn into characterising faults fractures, aquifers and aquitards for environmental reasons.
In these lectures and tutorials, we will work with teams to develop a common language and knowledge base to asses risks to groundwater assets.
We aim to help the generalist scientist to understand and talk confidently about flow in and around faults and fractures. We will also help resource geologist to better understand how structural geology can inform static flow properties.
MIRI FAULT SEAL
This single company training can be used as part of our integrated prospect review and technology transfer program. Suited for teams of up to 8 people. Miri Sarawak has one of the best set of outcrops in the world for illustrating faults and, in particular, SE-Asia.
•Integrated program including
–Field work (25% of time )
–Fault seal calibration
–Prospect risking program
–Peer review skills
Subsurface developments and or groundwater projects may impact near-surface groundwater assets such as groundwater-dependent ecosystems, riparian zones, springs, or wetlands. Faults can form clear and tangible flow paths between subsurface developments and groundwater assets. It is vital to recognise that faults are neither singularly sealing nor singularly leaking. Instead, they are a patchwork of cross-fault juxtapositions and fault rock types.
This 5-day course will equip geologist with skills and knowledge to characterise the static flow features of geologic faults. Hydrogeologists will learn the key geologic skills to characterise the geometry of faults.
Students will be able to confidently characterise fault kinematics and statistics. Critically asses faults represented in cross-sections and maps. Work through
