Course Description

 This course is designed to provide the participants with a solid understanding of reservoir engineering and associated modern theories in order to manage and maximize hydrocarbon recovery. Hands-on examples and exercises are used throughout the course to help participants with understanding key performance concepts. The course is formulated in a workshop format.

Course Objectives

  • Determining critical properties of reservoir rocks Fluid (oil, water, and gas) 
  • Calculating hydrocarbons initially in place using several methods
  • Assessing reservoir performance with dynamic techniques
  • Determining the parameters that impact well/reservoir performance over time
  • Analyzing well tests using standard well testing principles and techniques
  • Characterizing aquifers
  • Determining reservoir drive mechanisms for both Oil and Gas reservoirs
  • Applying oil and gas field development planning principles
  • Forecasting production decline
  • Screening reservoirs for the appropriate enhanced oil recovery processes
