COURSE DESCRIPTION

ABOUT THE COURSE
DESIGNED FOR
YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO

The Applied Reservoir Engineering Blended Program represents the core of the PetroSkills’ reservoir engineering program and the foundation for all future studies in this subject. Numerous engineering practices are covered, ranging from fluid and rock properties to simulation and field development planning. Proficiency in using Microsoft Excel to perform calculations and make graphs is desirable. Reservoir engineering is also presented in the context of a modern, multi-disciplinary team effort using supporting computer technology.

Engineers or geoscientists performing reservoir engineering tasks for their asset team

  • Determine critical properties of reservoir rock fluid (oil, water, and gas), PVT relationships
  • Recognize geological models to identify conventional and unconventional (shale oil and gas and heavy oil) hydrocarbon accumulations
  • Calculate hydrocarbons initially in place using several methods
  • Assess reservoir performance with dynamic techniques
  • Determine the parameters that impact well/reservoir performance over time
  • Analyze well tests using standard well testing principles and techniques
  • Characterize aquifers
  • Determine reservoir drive mechanisms for both oil and gas reservoirs
  • Apply oil and gas field development planning principles
  • Forecast production decline
