Background Information

Solewant/Scopex Oil & Gas Academy is a specialized collaborative initiative between local and internationally acclaimed Organizations with proven track records and vast experience in Oil & Gas human resources development.

The core uniqueness of the Academy derives from precision customized training that shall be largely hands-on, in terms of curriculum content and mode of course modules delivery. With the wealth of experience that the various personnel of Solewant cum Scopex as the local collaborators and ………….. as our international collaborators are synergizing to deliver a one stop Oil & Gas Academy all prospective trainees of the Academy shall be humanly configured to poses excellent skills in the industry. Most importantly, virtually all our trainees shall have the benefit of undertaking their practical training in the Solewant ultramodern Oil & Gas pipe coating and allied facility and Scopex Multifaceted ultramodern Oil & Gas Environmental Instrumentation and Environmental Laboratory. Our international collaborators shall readily also yield their facilities and expertise for trainees to experience a robust hands-on training Programme.

Course Modules

In our quest to ensure a wide array and needful human capacity building in the Nigerian Oil & Gas Industry, the following course modules have been carefully programmed as part of our curriculum. However, further course modules on a need to have basis shall be added and or improved upon as a going concern.

Course Outline

1. Corrosion Engineering Courses

➢ Corrosion Control in the Oil & Gas Industry Training

➢ Advanced Cathodic Protection Training

Corrosion Engineering is the specialist discipline of applying scientific knowledge, natural laws and physical resources in order to design and implement materials, structures, devices, systems and procedures to manage the natural phenomenon known as corrosion.

The discipline of corrosion engineering is important because deterioration and disintegration of vital structures, pipelines and other productive assets affect the safety of people and reliability of the industry and the economy worldwide. Corrosion engineering is the discipline of applying specialized scientific knowledge and the latest technology within several fields and laws of nature, in order to design, develop and implement solutions

2. Pipeline Coating Courses

3. Instrumentation, Automation and Control Systems Courses

➢ Introduction to Process Instrumentation Training

➢ Ball Valves Overview and Maintenance Training

➢ Applied Root Cause Analysis Methods on Oil & Gas Facilities Training

➢ Fiscal and Allocation Metering Training

➢ Process Control and Instrumentation Training

➢ Process Analyzer and Sampling Systems Training

➢ Control Valve Maintenance and Troubleshooting Training

➢ Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Systems Training

➢ Pressure Control Equipment Training

➢ Distributed Control System (DCS) Training

➢ Gas Chromatograph and HLPC Training

The Oil and gas industry uses automated instruments for its operational processes. Whilst Instrumentation refers to how devices and instruments are used in various processes, automation refers to how the instruments work automatically, the process automation control is used to automatically control the operational processes.

4. Geophysics Courses

➢ Basic Geophysics Training

➢ Quantitative Seismic Analysis for Exploration and Production Applications Training

➢ Seismic Reservoir Characterization Training

➢ Seismic Data Processing: Overview of Methods and Practicalities Training

➢ Seismic Data Processing: Theory and Implementation Training

➢ Advanced Seismic Data Processing and Interpretation Training

➢ Applied Geological Subsurface Imaging and Velocity Model Building Training

➢ AVO + Seismic Inversion Training

➢ Multi-component Seismic and Anisotropy

➢ Signal-to-Noise Enhancement Methods and Multiple Elimination Training

➢ Deconvolution and Least-Squares Filtering Training

➢ 4D seismic (Time-Lapse Seismic) Training

Geophysics is the application of physical principles to study the Earth’s structure and lithology.

Petroleum geophysicist uses range of highly sophisticated products/software both onshore and offshore to deliver highly accurate images of the earth’s subsurface for hydrocarbon exploration and development.

Geophysicist uses rock physics to predict reservoir parameters, such as lithology and pore fluids, from seismically derived attributes. These provides practical tools for quantitative interpretation, uncertainty assessment, and characterization of subsurface reservoirs.

5. Geology Courses

➢ Petroleum Geology Training

➢ Petroleum System Modelling and Resource Assessment Training

➢ Coring and Core Analysis Training

➢ Foundations and Special Core Analysis-SCAL Training

➢ Exploration Concepts in Carbonate Systems Training

➢ Applies Stratigraphic Concepts for Reservoir Characterization Training

➢ Petroleum Geology for Non-Geologists Training

➢ Integrated Geological Well Planning and Operations Training

➢ Pore Pressure Prediction and Evaluation Training

➢ Wellsite Operations Management Training

➢ Introduction to Wellsite Training

➢ Development Geology Training

Petroleum geology is primarily concerned with hydrocarbon fuels, where they originate from, where they are found, how they move and how they accumulate with the focus on exploration for commercial purposes.

There are several geological disciplines that are applied in the exploration of oil and gas requiring the expertise of Geologists and geophysicists because in order to find commercial quantities of oil and gas, there are several geological elements that are necessary and need to be assessed.
