E-326 - Reservoir Management

5 days REE/RMNGT
  • Geoscientists, reservoir engineers, field development engineers and petroleum engineers actively involved in production engineering related activities.
  • Managers and would-be managers in various E&P disciplines involved with interface activities.
  • This course provides a comprehensive overview of techniques used in the management of an asset, throughout its lifetime, from the discovery of a reservoir till the end of production.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • discuss main concepts of Reservoir Management from Geology to Hydrocarbon Recovery and Export point,
  • include each Reservoir Management component within the workflow and discuss the importance of timing and cost/benefit analysis,
  • list techniques and best practices related to the development of Oil & Gas fields including economic aspects,
  • describe Petroleum Resources Management System (PRMS), reserves and resources definition and classifications,
  • describe main monitoring techniques in order to apply IOR and EOR methods during reservoir life,
  • discuss about integrating risks and uncertainties into reserves evaluation: static uncertainties, dynamic uncertainties, geostochastic modelling, etc.,
  • use the interdisciplinary synergistic approach leading to efficient reservoir management.
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Interactive lectures and exercises.
  • Field case study.
