Managing Subsurface Exploration and Production Data

Short Course

This course is intended to enable students to develop knowledge and understanding of subsurface exploration and production data and evaluate its importance to the upstream oil and gas business.

Technical data management requires a level of understanding of the data types themselves, why they are necessary and how they are going to be used. Without this understanding, the data manager is less equipped to add value and decrease risk in their organisation. It can be difficult to attain this understanding if you do not have a recent background in a related technical field. This course offers an opportunity to gain the knowledge and understanding of subsurface data necessary to maximise your contribution as a petroleum data manager. It also allows those working in related roles, such as engineering data management and document control, to understand the subsurface data management role. With this understanding the wider Data and Information Management community can, as a whole, add more value and further decrease risk in the upstream oil and gas industry.
