Discipline: Reservoir Engineering
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Iskander Diyashev, Mason Gomez, W. Greg Hazlett, Richard Henry
Basic Reservoir Engineering is a course designed to help the participants develop a more complete understanding of the characteristics of oil and gas reservoirs, from fluid and rock characteristics through reservoir definition, delineation, classification, development, and production. Data collection, integration, and application directed toward maximizing recovery and Net Present Value are stressed. Basic reservoir engineering equations are introduced with emphasis directed to parameter significance and an understanding of the results. For nearly 30 years this has been one of our most popular and successful courses. The Basic Reservoir Engineering course includes class exercises designed to be solved by hand with a calculator. For those who prefer to use spreadsheets to do the calculations, participants are welcome to bring their own laptop computers.

DR. ISKANDER DIYASHEV is a director and a co-founder of Petroleum and Energy Technology Advisors, Inc., an engineering and consulting firm based in Houston, Texas, focused on drilling, completion and stimulation (www.1penta.com). Prior to that Dr. Diyashev was an officer and a board member with Independent Resource Development Corporation, based in Moscow with operations in Western Siberia Russia. Dr. Diyashev was responsible for the planning of field development, reserves evaluation and addition, planning of exploration activities, as well as engineering and technology. In 2001-2006 Dr. Diyashev served as a Chief Engineer for Sibneft, one of the largest integrated oil companies in Russia with a daily production of 700,000 BOPD.
During his career, Dr. Diyashev worked in R&D, consulting, and the service and production sides of the business both in Russia and internationally. Prior to his work with Sibneft, Dr. Diyashev was one of the key Schlumberger specialists to start the horizontal drilling project in Noyabrsk Western Siberia. He holds a PhD in Petroleum Engineering from Texas A&M University, and advanced degrees in Physics and Mathematics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. He has authored 30 technical papers. Dr. Diyashev is a member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, and served on the Board of Directors of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE International), and on the boards of various private E&P, service and engineering firms in the petroleum industry. Twice in his career Dr. Diyashev was elected to serve as a Distinguished Lecturer of the SPE, in 2005-06, and in 2017-18.
MR. MASON GOMEZ is the PetroSkills Technical Director for the Production and Completions discipline and the Reservoir Engineering discipline. He is a Licensed Petroleum Engineer (LA#26131) with 26 years diversified experience including: production/reservoir engineering, offshore field development/mature field optimization, shale play drilling/ completions, Operator/Service Company employment, Engineering, Sales, Operations Management, Human Resource Development, and Project Management roles. He received a BS degree in Petroleum Engineering from Stanford University.
DR. W. GREG HAZLETT is Vice President of PetroSkills where he designs competency-based training programs, evaluates course materials and instructors, teaches training courses, and consults on technical issues. Prior to joining OGCI, he was Vice President of a consulting firm, where he was in charge of the petroleum and geological engineering consulting group. He specializes in performing reservoir characterization, engineering and simulation studies. Studies include deep-water Gulf of Mexico oil and gas fields, a granite gas reservoir offshore India, and steamfloods in California. Dr. Hazlett has also worked for Mobil as a drilling engineer, and for Texaco as a steamflood project manager in Colombia, and as a reservoir and simulation engineer in both research and Kuwait operations. He was a Lecturer at Texas A&M University and an Associate Professor at New Mexico Tech, and has published on petroleum engineering topics, served as SPE coordinator for the Reservoir, Gas Technology, and Fluid Mechanics and Oil Recovery Processes committees, and has testified as an expert witness. Dr. Hazlett has BS, MS and PhD degrees in petroleum engineering from Texas A&M University and is a registered Professional Engineer in Texas.
Mr. RICHARD HENRY is an independent reservoir simulation specialist who is either out on a sailboat or teaching for PetroSkills in his spare time. He has degrees in industrial and petroleum engineering, and has performed over fifty reservoir engineering studies over two decades on a variety of different simulation platforms, field sizes and reservoir types. Before discovering simulation, he audited reserves of oil and gas fields in Latin America and West Africa, and ran multi-national, multi-disciplinary field optimization teams for Texaco. Mr. Henry holds a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and an M.S. in Petroleum Engineering from the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad.
