SQL: Application to Oil/Gas Relational Database / Instructor Celia Houston
(ITSE1043)

Oil and gas companies dedicate significant resources to building and maintaining relational databases. Unfortunately, many of these companies do not utilize database utilities such as SQL, or Structure Query Language, to maximize their surveillance capabilities. This course will explore the functionality of SQL and how this programming language can be used to improve surveillance and maintain oil and gas databases. All users of today's leading oil and gas database software, DSS32 and OFM, will benefit from this training. All course materials will be provided. Course materials include a demo production database and an electronic copy of the course manual.
