The program aim is to give strong basics of geology, geophysics and its interpretation and the geological and dynamic modelling. The courses can be divided into the several parts. The basic geological courses, basic geophysical courses, modelling, fundamental problems of science. The program is constructed to give students information of the sedimentological and basin analysis, interpretation of the geophysical methods and then integration of all the data into the single geological model and run reservoir simulation, taking geomechanical properties into account.
The best laboratories of KFU are used in the program. The in-situ combustion lab provide information about thermal EOR, NMR and petrophysical labs investigate core data, and the 3D GEO Center integrate all the data in the model.
The best software is used in the program: TechLog and Prime for well log interpretation, Petrel for Seismic interpretation, Petrel and Roxar for static geological modelling, tNavigator and Eclipse for reservoir simulation, CMG STARS for geomechanical modelling.
Master program was created in 2015 for the international students. The program is running in English. The tutors of the program are leading KFU professors and specialists from several oil servicing companies.
