Our shale training courses enhance your team's competencies and skills to help individuals work effectively in multidisciplinary shale teams.

The Multidomain Shale Training Program is divided into two modules: Geoscience and Engineering. Both include common workflows, simulations using field data, and courses that enhance the competencies and skills needed to work effectively in multidisciplinary shale teams.

During the 12-week program, your teams will

  • gain essential scientific knowledge
  • get hands-on exposure to a wide range of software applications, laboratory techniques, tools, and field-technology applications
  • visit relevant Schlumberger research, testing, and operations centers
  • apply their learning to a real-world project.
