Certificate WRM5

Certificate WRM5



A one-day in-person test on managing the development of a tutorial synthetic deposit based on a PetroCup simulator that automatically assigns scores to individual participants or group of participants.

The main purpose of the examination is to test the ability to analize multi-disciplinary geological and field data and to organise a set of activities for field re-development in order to maximize financial efficiency.

In the end of the test, an Electronic Certificate is issued, and it is possible to verifiy it any time in Nafta College website online database.

Testing is carried out for a group of up to 10 people.

Participants can pass the exercise individually or as a group in order to get respective certificate.

More information about the simulator can be found on the PetroCup LIBRARY page.
