A partner of excellencefor oil and gas professional development

E-350 - Introduction to Reservoir Engineering

  • Engineers and experienced technicians facing day-to-day reservoir engineering concerns although not directly involved (personnel from fields such as geology, geophysics, drilling, completion, production, processing, economics, etc.)
  • To provide an overview of main reservoir engineering concepts used in oil and gas fields development projects
Learning Objectives
  • To know the reservoir engineering workflow
  • To know and understand fundamental concepts of reservoir characterization and reservoir engineering in petrophysics, fluid characterization, formation evaluation and drive mechanisms
  • To understand how these concepts are used within multidisciplinary teamwork
Ways and means
  • Reservoir engineering workflow interactive presentation
  • Interactive lectures, exercises and short movies
  • Field case study quick-look
