3D Reservoir Modeling and Data Integration
Oil and gas reservoir 3D geological modeling techniques and workflows are given step by step in this online course and support program.
Removing the geographical boundaries!
In this short course, concept and the methodology of data integration in geological modeling are addressed with practical applications. Integration includes incorporation of geological information, seismic, petrophysical and dynamic data. Practical methodology of the best practices and troubleshooting of 3D reservoir characterization in the light of geostatistics are covered in each step of geo-modeling processes.
The process for data handling, importing, editing, quality controlling, quantitative analysis and constraining the results of modeling algorithms in the steps of picking, fault modeling, gridding, generating horizons, zoning, layering and property modeling are captured by using different tools and plots.
Serdar Kaya is a senior consultant with an extensive experience in reservoir modeling/characterization and various technology development. He has patented several technologies, published several journal and conference papers about innovative modeling approaches for challenging issues. He has also successfully trained, mentored and coached many geologist and engineers in reservoir modeling. He holds both MSc and BSc degrees in Petroleum Engineering. His achievements and high level of technical competence are a reflection not only his engineering knowledge but also the high level of personal commitment and drive.

Online In-Service Training and Support Program:
In-Service Training Program provides high-quality training opportunities for the trainee while working and producing results for his/her organization.
Our goal is to engage trainee to the practical course material as much as possible in order to broaden their knowledge, improve their skills and attitudes in technical interaction.
The culture of continues development would flourish during this process.
Using state of the art technologies to deliver course materials and interaction with the trainee enhance the online skills.
Where and when are the classes held?
Typically online courses can be covered at any time and at any place with internet connection. The trainee can follow courses online and interact with chatting/conferencing to the instructor.
All the courses can be accessed later on by the attendees during the registration period of 2 months (can be extended if requested).
Who teaches the classes?
Our instructors are top-notch! Highly qualified individuals with a love for teaching lead each class. Instructor names and biographies are published with course outline. We reserve the right to make instructor substitutions when necessary without notification.
How does the registration process work?
Each course is announced in our website for the availability in an online system. The course material are provided after registration.
Each company can request course access as many trainees as they need, even if the total trainee number exceeds the capacity of request handling. At the end of the registration period, the trainee access will be confirmed.
How are the classes paid for?
One Transfer Invoice is mailed to each participating company or individual at the conclusion of the registration and asked online payment.
