Who should attend?

Audience

    • 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.

Level

  • Proficiency
  • 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,
  • integrate risks and uncertainties into reserves evaluation: static uncertainties, dynamic uncertainties, geostochastic modelling, etc.
