Petroleum Geology

This course covers information starting with a broad overview of historical, economic, and scientific contexts related to modern energy exploration and production. Following an examination of “big picture” questions about the influence of energy in the world, we finish the course with regulations, leasing, and permitting to prepare you for the next course, Petroleum Engineering & Technology.

Petroleum Engineering & Technology

In this course, we dive into the mechanics and processes involved in drilling operations. Creating a safe, stable hole in the ground is the basic goal of the drilling process, but there are a variety of complex technologies and operational methods involved in creating that hole. In addition, this course discusses completions, formation evaluation, stimulation, production, decommissioning and reclamation.


Environmental Stewardship

This course examines the intersection between the oil and gas industry and the wider environment by presenting the global water cycle and energy-water nexus as well as other environmental concerns and health, safety, and security. The course ends with an overview of sustainable development as a best practice in all industrial environments.

Injection Wells and Sustainable Energy Systems

Energy production is an ever-changing and evolving field. Covering emerging technical and industrial concerns, this course provides an overview of underground injection, carbon capture utilization and storage, induced seismicity, and subsurface containment.
