Audience

    • Managers, engineers, technicians and Oil & Gas industry staff facing day-to-day Reservoir Engineering concerns: geoscientists, geo-information engineers, drilling/completion engineers and technicians, petroleum engineers, production engineers and technicians, economists etc.

Level

  • Foundation
  • This course provides participants with a general understanding of main Geosciences & Reservoir Engineering concepts and related data used in Oil & Gas fields development projects and the way these data are integrated.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • describe the main steps of Oil & Gas fields exploration and development process,
  • describe petroleum systems, reservoir rocks and related fundamental properties as well as the related techniques to get relevant information (core analysis, logs, well testing),
  • describe reservoir fluids and related fundamental properties,
  • describe main reservoir production mechanisms and the related expected performance,
  • discuss the concept of reserves and the related concepts of uncertainties and economic criterion,
  • discuss how these data/concepts are used by multidisciplinary teams within field development projects.
