APPLIED RESERVOIR ENGINEERING
This 5-days course represents the core of our reservoir engineering program and the foundation for all future studies in this subject. Numerous engineering practices are covered ranging from fluid and rock properties to simulation and field development planning. Proficiency in using Microsoft Excel to perform calculations and make graphs is desirable. Reservoir engineering is also presented in the context of a modern, multi-disciplinary team effort using supporting computer technology.
Key coverage areas of this course will include:
1. Petroleum geology and formation evaluation
2. Volumetric reserves estimates
4. Well performance, deliverability and testing
5. Pressure transient testing of oil and gas wells.
6. Productivity of horizontal wells.
7. Gas and water coning in vertical and horizontal wells
6. Decline curve analysis.
8. Reservoir drive mechanisms and producing characteristics.
9. Matching balance calculations.
10. History matching and uncertainty assessment.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course is designed for senior managers, project managers, reservoir engineers, geologists and geophysicists.
The participants will learn how to determine critical properties of reservoir rocks fluid (oil, water, and gas) PVT relationships, calculate hydrocarbons initially in place using several methods, assess reservoir performance with dynamic techniques, and determine the parameters that impact well/reservoir performance over time. The training will also expose the participants on how to analyse well tests using standard well testing principles and techniques, characterize aquifers, determine reservoir drive mechanisms for both oil and gas reservoirs, apply oil and gas field development planning principles, and forecast production decline.
