July 13 - 31, 2015


SuperSchool Objectives

Cooperative effort is increasingly important in the petroleum industry as teams of geologists, geophysicists, engineers, and operations personnel work together to solve complex problems. This school is designed to provide the technical fundamentals needed for effective teamwork across the breadth of activities in the upstream petroleum industry.

Who Should Attend

The SuperSchool is especially designed for new engineers with a non-petroleum engineering background, new geologists and geophysicists, operations personnel, and non-technical management personnel. Past attendees have been from companies such as: Aera Energy, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Marathon, Saudi Aramco, PVDSA, PEMEX, Schlumberger, Whiting, El Paso E&P Company, US Army and US DOE.

Teaching Philosophy

Classes are taught with small groups, authentic problems, and timely feedback to provide a vibrant learning environment. This approach makes the SuperSchool more of a workshop than a lecture course. Problem solving with real world field cases are used, together with hands-on experiences in the state-of-the-art computer lab, two days of field trips, and oral presentations. A certificate of completion will be awarded at the end of the school.
