DeepBlue is the name of Schlumberger's (my employer) training program for engineers in the Data Consulting Services (DCS) and Integrated Project Management (IPM) segments. I attended DeepBlue 1 in Houston in 2009, and I'll attend DeepBlue 3 sometime next year. The DeepBlue 2 course I am currently attending runs from August 8th to September 2nd. From the course description:
"The DCS DeepBlue 2 Production Technology course is designed to provide attendees with a strong introduction to the Schlumberger Production Optimization workflows and software applications required to successfully identify production enhancement opportunities. The expectation from this course is that attendees will acquire competency in candidate recognition and single well performance analysis and optimization. For detailed design of solutions (e.g. detailed frac design and pumping sequences), the production engineer is expected to work with the appropriate segment engineers or attend advanced training or cross-training."In other words: lots of training with esoteric, proprietary software that helps Petroleum Engineers to identify good locations for new wells and to optimize the production of existing wells and facilities.
