|Reservoir Management for Unconventional Reservoirs - RMUR|
Discipline: Reservoir Engineering
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Jeffrey (Jeff) Aldrich, John Seidle
|This course in unconventional reservoir management is aimed at all petro-technical professionals who have little experience with these resource types but who wish to quickly learn some key elements and issues associated with the exploitation of unconventional reservoirs (tight gas, tight oil, and shales). The course is built around the role of the reservoir engineer and, hence, concerns itself with the integration and use of information to make well rate and recoverable volumes estimates, making decisions on desirable data collection, and planning answers to common questions such as choice of initial development spacing and the value of subsequent infill drilling. Attendees should leave this course with an improved understanding of unconventional reservoir exploitation. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.|
All petro-technical professionals who have little experience with unconventional reservoirs but who need or desire to start developing some understanding of important basic concepts and methods associated with these resource types. The course is focused on reservoir management issues for tight gas, tight oil and shale reservoirs. CBM reservoirs are not addressed.
