Petrophysics and Formation Evaluation

In conjunction with LR Senergy, we are offering what we believe to be a global first - an MSc in Petrophysics and Formation Evaluation. Hailed as an "invaluable catalyst" towards helping address the worldwide petrophysics skills shortage. This prestigious programme has been developed to help address the recognised shortage of skilled petrophysicists in the energy industry. The objective of the MSc is to produce practitioners for the future and is aimed at people from a scientific, mathematic or engineering background, who wish to progress into a petrophysics role. Commencing with an introduction to petrophysics and its role in the oil and gas industry, the programme goes on to cover key areas, including coring and core analysis, integrating petrophysics and seismic data for reservoir characterisation, reservoir surveillance and operational petrophysics, characterisation of complex reservoirs and specialist formation evaluation.
