There are more approximately 1,000 oil and gas fields in the world that have been classified as "giant," containing more than 500 million barrels of recoverable oil and /or 3 trillion cubic feet of gas. This course will cover the structure, stratigraphy, and production history of the fields and an analysis of effective exploration, production, and enhanced oil recovery methods.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to analyze, compare, and contrast giant petroleum fields of the world. You will be able to describe the fields, the reservoirs, and their production history.
