This course is divided in three main parts: geological quantification, data integration and uncertainty quantification. This choice emphasizes applications where petroleum geostatistics has been most successful so far. The course does not pretend to be an exhaustive review of petroleum geostatistics. The author selected the topics which, in his view, provided the clearest and strongest illustration of the technique and its applications.

Rather than going through a tedious exposure of the geostatistical formalism, we prefer to review the methodology from an application standpoint. This course will start with a brief history of the technique, then finish with perspectives for the future. It will be stressed that, although it is already very successful, petroleum geostatistics is still a very new and changing discipline.
