JEF 436E - Hydrocarbon Geophysics

Course Objectives

1. To have basic knowledge about hydrocarbons , their main types (coal, oil, natural gas, gas hydrates), origins,
occurrences, reserves etc.
2. To learn hydrocarbon exploration methods in Geophysics; Passive (Gravity, magnetic and EM) and active methods
(seismic methods) theory and practices.
3. Discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of active and passive methods, correlation with each other.
4. To have knowledge about a new energy source, gas hydrates, their energy and environmental importance and methods
to exploration and production.
5. To improve student knowledge with paper presentations about hydrocarbon geophysics.
