Exprodat; the oil and gas GIS services, software and training supplier; has signed a partnership with leading petroleum training services provider PetroSkills, to deliver a series of Exprodat’s popular Petroleum GIS data management training courses.
Exprodat’s Data Management Pathway is a combination of training courses that teach oil and gas professionals how to benefit from using Esri’s ArcGIS within petroleum data management workflows.
Spatial data is generated and consumed right across the Exploration and Production (E&P) value chain and how well this vital geographical information is integrated and analysed can be critical to the success of an E&P department. However, many organisations struggle to manage their data effectively.
A key factor is the lack of domain skills and understanding of the specific issues associated with managing geographical data e.g. multiple datasets, different formats and various vendor sources. Exprodat’s Data Management Pathway provides students with the expertise required to manage and extract the maximum value from their organisation’s spatial data.
PetroSkills LLC, a worldwide training and development company has over 280 instructors, and offers over 900 public training sessions in more than 45 different cities worldwide. The PetroSkills Alliance, which PetroSkills LLC manages, delivers high quality competency-based training and development. The partnership between Exprodat and PetroSkills will see Exprodat’s Data Management Pathway courses added to the PetroSkills public training course schedule, within the Petroleum Data Management stream.
EVP for PetroSkills, Ron Hinn, remarked on the partnership with Exprodat, saying; “our ability to deliver important skills to individuals working within E&P Data Management roles will be significantly enhanced through this relationship. We are excited to be able to offer to our joint clients these three new course topics.”
