E-387 - Gas Fields: Reservoir Engineering

  • Geoscientists and petroleum engineers with already a few years experience
  • To give the participants practical and theoretical knowledge of the gas reservoir behavior: what are the gas PVT properties, and how the gas flows in the reservoir
  • The tight gas reservoir is a potential for the future and well productivity is the key point to produce such reservoirs
Learning Objectives
  • To calculate the IGIP by volumetric and material balance
Ways and means
  • The course will be illustrated by numerous practical examples and field case. A methodology for gas fields development is given
