Reservoir Characterization & Modeling Certification

RCM/RCM

Who should attend?

  • This course provides a comprehensive, practical knowledge of reservoir characterization and modeling workflow, via hands-on activities and case studies with the aim of bridging the gap between static geological characterization and dynamic reservoir behavior.
Audience :
  • Geoscientists, engineers newly hired or 2-3 years experienced, experienced technicians involved in multidisciplinary teams, willing to widen their knowledge and acquire practical know-how in geological modeling.

Level : Proficiency

Course Content

  • TRAINING ON RESERVOIR GEOLOGY DISCIPLINES

    Part 1: RESERVOIR CHARACTERIZATION TOOLS

      • Introduction to reservoir characterization.
      • Well logging & qualitative log interpretation.
      • Stratigraphy and sedimentology of siliciclastic reservoirs.
      • Fundamentals of facies analysis & rock-typing.
      • Seismic interpretation and attributes analysis workshop: qualitative and quantitative methods.
  • Part 2: RESERVOIR MODELING & VOLUMETRICS

      • Petroleum geostatistics.
      • Geological modeling workshop for integrated reservoir studies.
      • Hydrocarbons accumulations, reserves estimation, risk analysis and uncertainties.

  • Part 3: FINAL PROJECT WORKSHOP

      • Final project. Hands-on workshop (team work).
      • Presentation and jury.

Learning Objectives

  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • understand the analysis methods and techniques applied to reservoir modeling with related challenges,
  • analyze and interpret a dataset and integrate it in order to elaborate a reliable static model,
  • build a consistent geological static model with heterogeneities affecting fluid flow and production,
  • assess the uncertainty and risks in order to reduce them and thus optimize investments.

Ways & Means

  • Hands-on activities and simulations on real cases.
  • Emphasis on practical work to develop participants’ autonomy and appropriate decisions.
  • Both personal and group work, team-building, group discussion in results and workflows.
  • Software tools used in the petroleum industry.
  • Software used during workshops: with courtesy of Beicip-Franlab, Geovariance, Schlumberger and Senergy.

Certification

  • An international recognition of your competencies.
  • A Graduate Certificate is delivered.
  • An expertise confirmed in Reservoir Characterization & Modeling .
  • Ready-to-use skills.
