MOTIVATION LETTER

In this essay I outline my academic and extra-curricular accomplishments. Also discussed are my career objectives and the motivation to pursue the Master Program in Petroleum Geosciences at University of Oslo, Norway.

The undergraduate curriculum in Earth Sciences at Quaid-i-azam University (QAU), Islamabad, introduced me to a wide gamut of subjects, both in and outside the field. Various courses like Exploration Geophysics I, II &III, Structural Geology, Tectonics & Geodynamics (ES-404), Mineralogy, Petrology & Geochemistry (ES-405), Stratigraphy & Paleontology (ES-505), Geophysical Data Processing (ES-503), have provided me with a strong footing in the theoretical & practical concepts of Earth Science, especially in the field of Hydrocarbon Exploration &Production.

Throughout my degree, I have engaged myself in activities that aim to better understand the theories and practical applications of 'Seismic Method for Geophysical Exploration & Production' for the detection of hydrocarbons in sedimentary rocks supplemented with a sound knowledge of Geology & Geophysics and I want to continue to do so at a professional level. Master Studies at University of Oslo will enable me to develop the skills, needed to understand the properties and characteristics of sedimentary rocks with the help of Seismic and Well Data that I can subsequently apply in the oil industry. I am attracted by the vast research facilities at University of Oslo that can be a major resource in eve loping sophisticated problem solving skills. Research Center on learning technologies like 'Center for Oil Recovery' (corec) is of particular interest to me since it deals with the research for improved production from the existing oil and gas fields.

My final semester dissertation was on the Geological Interpretation of 2-Dimensional Seismic Data of central Indus Basin of Pakistan. It included the marking of seismic reflectors, generating the maps of different mechanical properties of the reservoir and determination of its mechanical characteristics with the help of Well Log Data. As a natural outcome of my interest in Petroleum Geosciences, adequate emphasis was given to detection of potential zones of interest and Reservoir Modeling and the incorporation of all these in the final conclusion of my research.

At Quaid-i-azam University, Islamabad, I have received the best possible undergraduate education in earth science in Pakistan. It is the No.1 University of Pakistan and ranks 2nd in the entire Muslim World. Throughout, my scholastic records and achievements have been outstanding. I have consistently ranked in the top 5 of the students of my class.

The years of undergraduate education have been an enriching experience - both academically and otherwise, and I am determined to maintain the high levels of excellence throughout my career.

My immediate degree objective is an M.Sc in Petroleum Geosciences- a rapidly evolving field with an immense potential for research. I wish to follow it up with a PhD, to pursue a career in research and experience the excitement and satisfaction of being at the forefront of this vast expanding field.

An extremely distinguished faculty, a milieu replete with academic activity, and a Master Program which blends high quality course work and research facilities at the cutting edge of every sub-field are the factors which have motivated me to choose the University of Oslo, Norway for master studies. I believe the program offered will help me acquire the versatility needed to reach my full potential as a Petroleum Geoscientist. It would, therefore, be a privilege to be able to secure admission to pursue master studies, at the University of Oslo, Norway. I am confident that I will match the high standards set by your university.

This sentence is kinda long and a bit confusing. I think I can help you write it more clearly. You could say it like this:

"While studying for my degree, I involved myself in several activities to better understand the 'Seismic Method for Geophysical Exploration & Production'. I delved into the theories and practical applications of this topic, which detects hydrocarbons in sedimentary rocks. Additionally, my sound knowledge of Geology & Geophysics is the basis for continuing to work in this field at a professional level."

The Master Studies at University of Oslo will enable me to develop the skills n eeded to understand the properties and characteristics of sedimentary rocks.Combined w ith the help of Seismic and Well Data,that I can subsequently apply my expertise in the oil industry.
