Course Summaries

Steam Distribution & Metering Tutorial

This 1-day professional short course covers the basic concepts of steam generation, two-phase steam properties, and flow of steam through surface lines, pipe tees and control valves.

Steam Distribution & Metering Workshop

This 3-day course provides detailed guidelines for developing a surface steam monitoring program and hands-on training in the use of our SteamTools software to analyze data and optimize steam distribution performance.

Subsurface Heat Management Workshop This 3-day course provides a comprehensive review of steam flood and cyclic steam processes, well completions and subsurface equipment, and reservoir heat management principles.  This course also includes hands-on training in the use of ISG's ResHeat software to analyze data and evaluate subsurface heat management efficiency.

Production Gauging Principles & Methods Tutorial

This 1-day course covers basic well gauging principles and methods used to monitor heavy oil production from steam flood or cyclic steam projects. 

A Unique Benefit

Ordinarily, students walk away from technical seminars with an incomplete understanding of the subject matter and the concepts are usually forgotten or improperly applied in the workplace.  In contrast, ISG training is straight-forward and easy to understand, given by recognized authorities.  In our courses, students use PC-based tools to analyze the kind of information they deal with in their daily work.  This means that students not only learn important methods and concepts, they also learn how to apply best practices and improve productivity.

The result is that the knowledge gained from ISG training will be recalled and used long after the courses themselves are completed.  And, since the analysis software is included with each course, this knowledge can continue to grow for years to come.


Ms. Suzanne Castrup has over thirty-five years of experience in heavy oil recovery and is currently President of Integrated Sciences Group.  Since joining Integrated Sciences Group, she has developed several measurement science and petroleum engineering courses and provided engineering consulting services for monitoring and optimizing heavy oil projects in California, Canada, South America and the Middle East. Prior to joining Integrated Sciences Group, Ms. Castrup was Technical Advisor for Thermally Enhanced Oil Recovery in Chevron’s Western Basins Group providing in-house consultation on all aspects of steamflood and cyclic steam project design, implementation and evaluation.  She was also a Production/Reservoir Engineer, managing both cyclic steam stimulation and steamflood projects in several heavy oil properties in the San Joaquin Valley, and spent eleven years as a Research Engineer at Chevron Oil Field Research Center. She has published numerous technical papers and holds several patents relating to heavy oil recovery.  She is a recipient of the 2007 SPE International Award for distinguished contributions to petroleum engineering projects, facilities and construction.  Click Here for a list of professional accomplishments.
