Why to take a course with us?

Geoplay Pyrenees Ltd has been carrying out field research and providing field courses for the petroleum industry since 1989. The company is based in Tremp in the centre of the south-central Pyrenees, probably the best geological lab in the world. Over the years more than 1000 delegates from about 60 oil companies have attended Geoplay courses. Shell is our main client, for whom we organise two technical courses a year.

Geoplay’s research branch, Catalonia Geological Research, encompasses a consortium of university students and professional geologists. Staff are passionate about the geology of the region. Company policy is to use eco-friendly and/or recyclable products and locally sourced food. Catalan culture is an important part of all Geoplay trips in the Pyrenees.

GeoScience Ltd is an independent Earth-science consultancy with offices in the UK and Australia, founded in 1985. The company has expertise in the characterisation and geomechanics of fractured reservoirs, reservoir appraisal, reservoir sedimentology and diagenesis, and applied drilling engineering.

Its multi-disciplinary team can help with a range of reservoir studies, data integration and training. They design robust and flexible workflows to provide practical solutions for field development potential at any stage of the cycle. The company has worked in North Africa, Europe and the Middle East, notably Iraqi Kurdistan and the Gulf States.

Geoplay and GeoScience have joined forces to offer a unique program of personalised courses that meet market needs. Health, safety and respect for the environment are our priority on all fieldtrips.
