Joint Committee on Reserves Evaluator Training (JCORET)

 

JCORET seeks to assure that high-quality, industry-recognized training is available for individuals responsible for petroleum reserves and resources evaluation. The Joint Committee on Reserves Evaluator Training (JCORET) was formed in 2006. The five sponsors are the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the World Petroleum Council (WPC), the Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (SPEE), and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). These societies sponsor JCORET to meet a generally recognized need for quality training for individuals responsible for petroleum reserves and resources evaluation. A secondary objective is to work toward making such training available to evaluators worldwide at a reasonable cost. JCORET reviews and approves courses from various authors on reserves and resources definitions, recommended geological and engineering evaluation practices, and ethics. An “Authors Kit” is available at www.JCORET.org that provides information on how to prepare and submit a course for JCORET consideration.  For students, the website contains information on approved courses.
