Petroleum experts (petex) is a petroleum engineering and structural geology company, developing a wide range of software tools we are a team of highly skilled professionals with extensive experience in petroleum engineering, structural geology and engineering software. Training application of structural geology and seismic interpretation course objectives seismic interpretation requires understanding of structural development and its interrelation with the stratigraphic system. Structural geologists dr alan vaughan principal structural geologist alan joined midland valley in 2013 after more than 20 years with the british antarctic survey in cambridge, where he provided leadership in the application of tectonics and structural geology, and managed a wide range of scientists from micropalaeontologists to potential field geophysicists.
Overview the applied petroleum geoscience programme is a unique programme in subsurface geoscience and exploration at heriot-watt university the programme mainly focuses on exploration petroleum geoscience, but it is closely linked with other msc programmes and research groups in petroleum engineering and reservoir geology at the institute of petroleum engineering, heriot-watt university. The educational program will provide the students with an in-depth knowledge of geology, sedimentary geology, structural geology and geophysics related to petroleum environment and exploration with emphasis in application of current concepts, methods and technologies (eg basin analysis, sequence stratigraphy, petroleum systems modelling.
