We have successfully offered a variety of practical, no-nonsense petrophysical training courses for over 35 years. If you qualify, you too could take part in this rewarding career path, using our tried and tested proprietary seminar materials. The world market is huge and many local areas are not served effectively by any form of in-house or commercial petrophysical course presentations.  

Each seminar is supported by a full colour Reference Manual and a visual presentation with practical exercises. More than 20 spreadsheets can be used to demonstrate the calculations. These lectures are time-tested in major and independent oil companies, service companies, universities, and government agencies around the world.


The slide shows are narrated as an aid in preparing your own personal presentation. You can add, delete, or edit slides to customize the show, or combine lectures to suit a particular client's needs. You can add exercises that reflect exploration and development activities in your local area.
