Software and consultancy services for the petroleum industry.

Training facilities at the University of Leeds

Measuring the properties of core samples produces a wealth of information, however, the interpretation of specific studies and results could be enhanced with targeted training to maximise the value of the data. Petriva offer a range of training courses for the petroleum industry including:-


  • Fault seal analysis: an evidence-based approach
  • Unconventional core analysis and petrophysics
  • Data visualization using PETMiner


Bespoke courses can be provided to include the analysis of clients data and/or linked to field trips or visits to the core store.


Linking training courses to visits to the core store provides a valuable way to demonstrate the type and structure of fault rocks present in a particular field/area

Cataclastic faults in fractured dolomite, Austria

Fault seal training can be tailored to include trips to either siliciclastic or carbonate outcrops with objectives including:

  • Fault geometries, fault segmentations and fault damage zones
  • Fault rock properties, fault fluid-flow barriers and permeability enhancements
  • Static and dynamic fault seal analysis in prospect evaluation and static/dynamic models
  • A range of locations are offered (e.g. siliciclastics in the UK, carbonates in Austria, Malta, Italy, UK etc.)
