This will allow us to more clearly demonstrate the value of GIS as a data integration and visualisation platform and improve our basin and play analysis workflows, while complimenting the products already provided by IHS. We will also be able to make our courses more relevant for different geographic markets, allowing clients to learn on data sets that are relevant to their day-to-day work.”
Phil Rooney, Senior Product Manager at HIS said “We are delighted to be working with Exprodat by providing data for their training courses, which helps promote best practices for using GIS technology within the oil and gas sector.”

The instructor led classroom-based courses are designed to be as short as possible so that the attendees spend the minimum amount of time away from their ‘day jobs.’ The courses are delivered as a combination of presentations, demonstrations, case studies and hands-on exercises, and in order to maintain the quality of the classes, Exprodat’s trainers are TAP-certified (www.tap-training.com).
