GMDK proposes several complementary 1-day courses in O&G geomodeling. Following this training will allow you to:
- Understand what geomodeling is about and what his place is in the work of an asset team.
- Build your first geomodels by learning practical geomodeling workflows.
- Improve your geomodeling skills and become an expert in geomodeling.
These courses will be offered not only in Calgary, the headquarter of GMDK, but also in other Canadian towns as well as internationally. New public sessions will be regularly posted.
During the second half of 2020, and in parallel to classroom sessions, these courses will progressively become available as pre-recorded video sessions.

All sessions will run, even those with only 1 participant.
Half-price for students and for unemployed people. Also, see the course description for the early bird rate and date specific to each scheduled course.

Series of independent courses to transform you from a neophyte to an expert in geomodeling. These courses are all independent one from the other. But they are complementary in the sense that they have different contents. Depending on your needs, take one or the other... or why not all of them if you want to master geomodeling! The content are software independent. They are also light on equations. The goal is always to help understand the results of applying specific methodologies.
Geomodeling for non-geomodeler. Introduction to the full geomodeling workflow from why we build geomodels to building the geomodel itself to creating simulation grids for engineers. This one-day course will be perfect for anyone wanting an overview of the domain without getting lost in the details geomodelers themselves must master. This course is also a perfect starting point for anyone who starts from zero but wants to master the domain and who can continue with the next courses.
From geological contouring to geomodeling. The goal is to teach how to go from manually-drawn contours to contours done in software and how contour maps are used in geomodeling. This course can be taken for people who master manual contouring but wants to better understand how contouring by interpolation can be done right. This course is also a must for anyone serious about mastering geomodeling as contour maps play an important role in many steps of the geomodeling workflow.
Geosciences and geomodeling. Teach how to build a 3D geological grid using data and interpretation of geologists, petrophysicists and geophysicists as input. This course is complementary to the previous one on geological contouring. As such, contouring won't be detailed in this course. Geostatistics is covered in the next course.
Geostatistics and geomodeling. Present the main concepts behind geostatistics applied in building geomodels for the O&G industry. The focus is in understanding the principles, what algorithms to use when and why the results look like they do. The course is not on mastering the equations. In fact, the content of this course is largely equation-free. Contact us if you are looking for a course on geostatistical mathematics. We will recommend some to you.
Engineering and geomodeling. Teach how to create 3D flow simulation grids from an existing 3D geological grid. This course also review how volumes are computed in 3D geological grids and how uncertainties are managed in the process.
Auditing a geomodeling project. In this course, you don't learn how to build a geomodel. You learn how to do a peer-review of an existing one.
