E-001C - IRM - Integrated Reservoir Management

45 days GEN/IRM
Level
Proficiency
Audience
  • High-potential E&P professionals, future managers of E&P assets and activities, providers of integrated E&P services petroleum engineers, geoscientists, well engineers, project managers, business unit leaders
Purpose
  • This course provides, through a multidisciplinary approach, an in-depth understanding of key concepts and mechanisms of reservoir development and management, from exploration and field development to field operations and enhanced oil recovery.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • discuss the workflow for developing and managing Oil & Gas fields,
  • discuss and apply best practices for developing and managing Oil & Gas fields through hands-on workshops and case studies,
  • maximize value creation of oil & gas assets by optimizing technical and economic resources while taking into account uncertainties.
Prerequisite
  • A degree in engineering or geosciences, with preferably a 3 to 5-years professional experience
Ways and means
  • Highly interactive course with actual case studies
  • Animation by E&P senior experienced lecturers
  • A field trip in Wessex (England) followed by two weeks (course) in Imperial College (London) focused on field development optimization
  • A condensate gas reservoir integrated project focused on integrated production management and related tools
  • A final project focused on an FDP optimization including uncertainties assessment with a presentation to a jury
Observation
Accommodation and transportation costs are not included in the fee. Logistics can be organized by IFP training A specific brochure for this program is available on request
