Petroleum Advanced Geoprocessing

This course is delivered by AllPoints GIS, a long-time Esri Network and Business Partner. AllPoints continues to teach and deploy ArcGIS where land and natural resource management, resource development and protection combine in increasingly complex and sensitive workflows. The team includes award-winning ArcGIS instructors, modelers, programmer and consultants with Petroleum industry knowledge drawn from long careers working for Mobil, Amoco (BP), Apache, Champlin (Anadarko) and QC Data (IHS).

Geospatial Analysis Tools
ArcToolbox and Spatial Analyst deliver hundreds of tools for analyzing geospatial data. This course will show you how to get started with a focus on the tools you’re likely to use in exploration and production (E&P), land, operations, pipeline, and environmental health and safety (EHS). You’ll learn ways to analyze vector and raster data and gain an understanding of what to use when. You’ll get a chance to partake in several hands-on exercises and be provided with a project planning and critical thinking framework.

Using ModelBuilder to Automate Analytical Workflows
In this course, you’ll also learn how to automate your analytical workflows using ModelBuilder. ModelBuilder provides a unique “visual programming” environment geared towards visualizing, automating, documenting, and sharing complex analytical workflows. Models may be re-sequenced, repurposed and reused in different analytical processes. Models can also be run in “batch mode” while you do other things.
Who Should Attend
This course is suited to experienced ArcGIS users that are interested in leveraging powerful analysis tools. Users working in science, engineering, land, petroleum, mining, and virtually any business discipline or level of government would benefit from this course.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
  • Conduct play fairway analyses and risk mapping; prioritize new plays and prospects
  • Plan for sensitivities/determine exclusion zones; identify and manage ground disturbing activities in sensitive environments such as wetlands and endangered species
  • Conduct well siting and suitability assessment; consider slope, exclusion zones, and distance to existing infrastructure to identify and prioritize suitable drill sites
  • Calculate cost-distance; identify the “least cost path” to build a road or connection between a proposed well site and existing infrastructure
  • Perform production allocation / horizontal well divisions; calculate allocations considering the percent of horizontal well in a parcel
