1. Petroleum Geoscience

Petroleum Geoscience is involved in maximizing exploration from established oil & gas fields and unraveling new hydrocarbon sources. This is done by employing latest apparatus and developments in geology and geophysics at the levels of sedimentary basins and reservoirs. Study of Petroleum Geoscience at a Nigerian IEI will equip you with both theoretical and practical knowledge in acquiring and processing of seismic well data, sedimentary basin evaluation, reservoir modelling and characterization using latest technologies and software.

This is an opportunity for bridging competency gaps in the petroleum industry activities so as to boost local content in manpower and engender wealth creation.
