Introduction to Reservoir Engineering - Remote training
Who should attend?
This course provides a general understanding of main Geosciences & Reservoir Engineering concepts and data used in multidisciplinary Oil & Gas fields development projects and the way these data and concepts are integrated.
Technicians, engineers, managers and Oil & Gas industry staff facing day-to-day Geosciences and Reservoir Engineering concerns.
No pre-requisistes are necessary to follow this course.
E&P & RESERVOIR ENGINEERING WORKFLOW
Introduction to E&P and reservoir engineering workflow through interactive work.
Logging operations and log environment (borehole, invasion profile).
Fundamental equations for log interpretation in clean formations.
Main open-hole logs. Quick-look qualitative interpretation technique.
Reservoir fluids properties (oil, gas, water):
Fluids composition (hydrocarbons).
Thermodynamics equilibrium. Phase envelope.
Main PVT parameters: FVF, Rs, GOR, etc.
FUNDAMENTALS OF RESERVOIR ENGINEERING
Well testing and well test analysis:
Well and reservoir performance and the need for testing.
Darcy's law, diffusivity equation and typical flow regimes.
Productivity index, radius of investigation.
Well test interpretation: pressure curves analysis, pressure derivative.
Primary recovery: oil reservoirs (natural depletion, natural water drive) and gas reservoirs.
Secondary recovery: water flooding, gas injection.
EOR: miscible gas injection, chemical flooding, thermal flooding.
FUNDAMENTALS OF RESERVOIR SIMULATION
Principles and objective of reservoir simulation:
Reservoir simulation models - Building the models.
Reservoir simulators - Black-oil, compositional, thermal, chemical, etc.
Reservoir simulation workflow.
Data review. History match. Production forecast.
Introduction to a reservoir simulator:
Data set review. Grid. Petrophysical data. PVT data. Wells and production constraints.
Analyzing some simulation results on various reservoir models.
RESERVES DEFINITION & CLASSIFICATION
