This course provides a comprehensive practical knowledge of fundamental concepts of Reservoir Engineering, through hands-on activities, case studies and projects.
This course is intended for newly hired or 2-3 years experienced reservoir engineers, for geoscientists, petroleum engineers and production engineers.
Degree in geosciences or equivalent experience.
Part 1: FUNDAMENTALS OF RESERVOIR GEOLOGY
Introduction to reservoir characterization.
Petrophysics - Reservoir properties from cores & logs evaluation.
Reservoir modeling workshop.
Part 2: FLUIDS, WELLBORE INTERFACE & WELL PRODUCTIVITY, WELL TESTING
Reservoir fluid properties.
Drilling and completion - Wellbore interface and well productivity.
Well testing and well test analysis.
Part 3: RESERVOIR DRIVE MECHANISMS & RESERVOIR MANAGEMENT
Drive mechanisms - Enhanced Oil Recovery.
Part 4: RESERVOIR SIMULATION & FINAL DEVELOPMENT PROJECT WORKSHOP
Dynamic reservoir simulation.
Final teamwork workshop - 2 weeks of hands-on workshop focused on optimizing an oil field development project integrating real laboratory data, field data and simulation model.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
describe reservoirs characterization and modeling workflow,
discuss fluids properties and describe the PVT modeling process,
discuss principles of well testing and well test interpretation,
discuss the mechanisms of primary recovery and secondary recovery and their performance,
list main Enhanced Oil Recovery methods and discuss mechanisms and performance,
discuss fundamentals of reservoir management and describe reservoir monitoring techniques,
define the concepts of resources, reserves and corresponding classification, integrating risks and uncertainties,
discuss fundamentals of dynamic reservoir simulation, and build a simple black-oil reservoir simulation study.
