Hyne Course Description: Overview of computer applications in exploration; covers the history, fundamentals, terminology and software for exploration; introduction to the principles of geology, geophysics and petrophysics Learning Outcomes: Students will gain applying knowledge in managing and manipulating petroleum exploration data, creating work product such as maps and well logs montages. They will also demonstrate skills and competencies in cross sections and seismic interpretation. Class Attendance: Class is very important and the student is responsible for material covered during his absence. If some unavoidable situation arises which causes you to miss class, then keep me advised. Otherwise, if your absences exceed 12.5% (4 classes) during this course, you can expect to be administratively withdrawn. Withdrawal Policy: In 2007, the Texas Legislature passed a law limiting students to no more than six (6) total course withdrawals throughout their academic career in obtaining a baccalaureate degree. To help students avoid having to drop/withdraw from any class, HCC has instituted an Early Alert process by which your instructor will “alert” you and HCC student service of the chance you may fail a class because of excessive absences and/or poor academic performance. You should visit with your instructor, a counselor, or HCC Online Student Services to learn about your options. Online Tutoring Service: HCC offers FREE online tutoring in a variety of subjects; including Mathematics, English and Writing, to take advantage of these Online Tutoring Services go to www.hccs.askonline.net . Tour questions will be answered by a qualified HCC tutor or faculty member within 24 hours (usually under 6 hours). Office Hours: Before and after class or by appointment Academic Honesty: All Houston Community College System students are required to exercise academic honesty in completion of all tests and assignments. Penalties for academic dishonesty (cheating on a test, plagiarism, collusion on an assignment, etc) may include, but are not limited to, a reduced grade, or a “0” on the test or assignment, a “W” in a course, or “F” in that course. Make up Tests: There will be no make up tests under any circumstances. In the event that a student should miss one test, the final exam will be substituted in its place. Students with Disabilities: “Any student with a documented disability (e.g. physical, learning, psychiatric, development, vision, hearing, etc.) who needs to arrange reasonable accommodations must contact the Disability Support Services (DSS) Counselor at the beginning of each semester. Faculty members are authorized to provide only the accommodations requested by the DSS office.” Examinations and Grading: Project: 10% Quizzes/Tests: 35% Lab if any: 30% Final Exam: 25% Grade Letter 90- 100 = A 80 – 89 = B 70 – 79 = C 60 – 69 = D 59 – 0 = F Course Outline TR 5.00 pm – 10.00 pm; Classroom STECH 314 January 17: Introduction, Rules, Syllabus, and Overview of Course Petroleum computer applications: Computer Appreciation Data Management in Petroleum Exploration Sources of Exploration Data Technical Library Grouping for project and lab January 24: Fundamentals of Petroleum Geology: Introduction The nature of Oil & Gas – Chapter 1 The Earth’s Crust – Where We Find It -- Chapter 2 Identification of Common Rocks and Minerals – Chapter 3 Geological Time – Chapter 4 January 31: Fundamentals of Petroleum Geology: Deformation of Sedimentary Rocks – Chapter 5 Ocean Environment and Plate Tectonics – Chapter 6 Sedimentary Rock Distribution – Chapter 7 February 7: Fundamentals of Petroleum Geology: Test 1: Covers up to Chapter 4 Mapping – Chapter 8 Source Rocks, Generation, Migration and Accumulation of Petroleum – Chapter 9 Reservoir Rocks – Chapter 10 February 14: Fundamentals of Petroleum Geology: Petroleum Traps – Chapter 11 Petroleum Exploration: Geological and Geochemical -- Chapter 12 Geophysical – Chapter 13 February 21: Drilling: Test 2: Covers Chapters 5 - 10 Drilling Preliminaries – Chapter 14 Drilling A Well: The Mechanics – Chapter 15 Drilling Problems – Chapter 16 February 28: Drilling/Completion: Drilling Techniques – Chapter 17 Formation Evaluation: Testing a Well – Chapter 18 Completing a Well – Chapter 19 Offshore Drilling and Completion – Chapter 21 March 7: Mid-Term Examination: Covers Chapters 11 -- 21 Workover – Chapter 22 Reservoir Mechanics – Chapter 23 Petroleum Production: Surface Treatment and Storage – Chapter 20 Petroleum Production – Chapter 24 No Class: Mid-Term Break March 14: March 21: Reserves – Chapter 25 Improved Oil Recovery – Chapter 26 Unconventional Oil and Gas – Chapter 27 March 28: Test 4: covers Chapters 22 -- 27 Lab Introduction April 4: Lab April 11: Lab Project Assignment April 18: Lab April 25: Lab May 2: Lab Project due date: Student Group Presentations in class/lab Final Examination Review Comprehensive final exam will cover handouts and Chapters 1 thru 27 of textbook May 9: Final Exam May 16 No class; End of semester; reporting of grades Note: The course outline may be changed as deemed appropriate at any time.
