This program is ideal for those wishing to gain a better understanding of geology and its importance in the petroleum industry. Now readers can test their knowledge using an assessment tool aimed at reinforcing material from the book.

The Self-Study Program is designed to teach key terms and concepts that are essential to the oil and gas industry. Topics include basic geologic concepts, sedimentation, petroleum accumulation, exploration, economics, monitoring the well, and field development.

When you purchase this program, you receive Practical Petroleum Geology (in print or e-book) and an online assessment that can be taken as an open-book test at your own pace.  If you already own a copy of the book you can purchase the assessment separately.  The assessment is made up of 215 questions and takes approximately 5 hours to complete after reading the book. If a passing score of 70% is not achieved, you may retake the assessment at no additional cost. Successful completion earns a Completion Certificate from The University of Texas at Austin–PETEX and 3.0 CEUs.
