A Structured System

No project carried out within the Petroleum Industry is complete if not competently presented or reported.

reportThis unique workshop provides guidelines for the efficient reporting of petroleum engineering, geological and geophysical studies:

  • It will help you to produce concise and readable management briefings, well/study proposals, field development plans, operating manuals, equity documentation and study reports
  • It gives practical instruction rather than theory or tuition in linguistic niceties
  • It includes individual tutorial sessions.

Based on extensive experience of carrying out and reporting integrated field development studies in an International Oil Company and Consultancy environment, it can be adjusted for non-native English speakers or for those with English as mother tongue. Although naturally slanted towards writing in English, the general approach is valid no matter which language is used for reporting! It also addresses techniques suitable for e-documents and presentations.
