Applied Reservoir Engineering: RE Virtual


Level: Foundation


Duration: 32 hours instructor-led (virtual), plus approximately 88 hours self-paced work


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. Learn More

Basic Reservoir Engineering: BR Virtual


LEVEL: Basic


DURATION: 4 hours instructor-led (virtual), plus approximately 62 hours self-paced work


The Basic Reservoir Engineering Blended Program is 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. Learn More




Capillarity in Rocks - CIR


DISCIPLINE: Petrophysics


LEVEL: Intermediate


DURATION: 3 days (6 half-day sessions over two weeks)




DESIGNED FOR:  Geoscientists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, and research and development staff who want to gain fundamental and intermediate insight into the capillary properties and hydrocarbon distribution in reservoir rocks. Learn More




Reservoir Engineering for Other Disciplines: REO Virtual


LEVEL: Foundation


DURATION: 10 x 4 hour sessions for the Virtual course.


Or, for the on-demand Blended course, 14 hours instructor-led (virtual), plus approximately 58 hours self-paced work


This course gives the non-reservoir engineer a better understanding of reservoir engineering practices and limitations. The course is designed to provide a good understanding of reservoir engineering processes, the required data, and the limitations on the engineers' analysis and interpretations. The course also provides persons who are already well trained in the other upstream petroleum industry technical disciplines with an understanding of the current state-of-the-art practice of reservoir engineering.

Reservoir Management for Unconventional Resources - RMUR Virtual


LEVEL: Intermediate


DURATION: 10 x 4 hour sessions for the Virtual course.


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.
