Discipline: Reservoir Engineering
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Iskander Diyashev, Stanley Kleinsteiber, MHA Petroleum Consultants, John Spivey
Natural gas production has become a major part of every petroleum company's asset base and continues to grow in importance throughout the world. This course will help participants understand the engineering drivers on gas reservoir management and how a gas reservoir's value can be maximized through sound engineering practices. A full spectrum of gas reservoir engineering techniques is addressed and their application to a large variety of gas resource management options is discussed. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.
"Teacher was very good. Has a lot of practical experience and interesting stories." - Reservoir Engineer, Germany
"Liked the presentation and the flow of the examples - hands on exercises." - Reservoir Engineer, United Kingdom
Engineers actively involved with the operation and management of gas reservoirs; geoscientists working with gas reservoirs in field development and expansion planning would also benefit from attending this course. Comments from previous attendees include:
"Very good practical approach to the material - course is highly recommended."
"Instructor did a great job relating the theory to potential applications."
"Exercises were practical and useful."
You Will Learn:
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. STANLEY KLEINSTEIBER is a Senior Petroleum Engineer with MHA Petroleum Consultants Inc., a Denver-based petroleum consulting firm. Mr. Kleinsteiber has over 24 years of petroleum engineering experience and has authored or co-authored papers dealing with production decline type curve analysis, CO2 flooding, and depletion of a rich gas condensate reservoir by nitrogen injection. Since joining MHA he has performed reservoir engineering studies in numerous US basins, Canada and Australia, as well as co-developed an in-house gas reservoir engineering course for clients such as BP, Japan National Oil Company (Tokyo), and EGPC (Cairo). Mr. Kleinsteiber has experience related to exploration well testing in the Mediterranean Ocean offshore Israel. He has also performed field development studies for coalbed methane reservoirs in the Bowen Basin of eastern Australia, and well test analyses for exploration wells in Hungary. Prior to joining MHA, he held various reservoir engineering positions with Amoco Production Company both in their Tulsa, Oklahoma research center and Denver regional production office. Mr. Kleinsteiber's last position with Amoco was Western Business Unit Technology Coordinator where he was an internal consultant to the business unit's engineering staff in the Rocky Mountain and Mid-Continent regions. Mr. Kleinsteiber and his colleagues at Amoco developed the initial plan of depletion for fields in Wyoming and Utah using compositional numerical simulation. His specific contributions were in the areas of fluid property characterization, well testing and simulation studies for various development options. Mr. Kleinsteiber also directs continued development of MHA's GAS3D reservoir simulator and software for production decline type curve analysis. He received a BS in petroleum engineering with highest honors from the University of Oklahoma in 1978.
MHA Petroleum Consultants was incorporated in 1994 to provide a broad range of services from single-well valuations to fully integrated field studies. Their highly-trained professionals have assisted clients in maximizing the performance of reservoirs worldwide. The typical MHA instructor has over 30 years in the industry, and is professionally registered. Find more information at www.mhausa.com
MHA professionals currently instructing for PetroSkills include:
DR. JOHN P. SPIVEY has over 20 years experience in the petroleum industry, with interests in pressure transient analysis, production data analysis, reservoir engineering, continuing education, and software development. From 1984 to 1990, he worked for SoftSearch, Inc. (later Dwights EnergyData) developing petroleum economics and engineering software. In 1990, he joined S.A. Holditch & Associates (SAH), which was purchased by Schlumberger (SLB) in 1997. While at SAH/SLB he conducted reservoir simulation, gas storage, and tight gas application studies and taught industry short courses in well testing and production data analysis. He actively participated in on-going development of SABRE, SAH numerical reservoir simulator, and in research in techniques for production data analysis for gas wells. He also designed and developed PROMAT, an analytical production data analysis and forecasting program, and WELLTEST, an interactive pressure transient test analysis program. In 2004, he started his own reservoir engineering consulting company, Phoenix Reservoir Engineering, and software development company, Phoenix Reservoir Software, LLC, which provides PMTx, a software package for analyzing production and production log data and forecasting future performance for multilayer low permeability reservoirs. Since 1992, he has served as Visiting Assistant Professor or Adjunct Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University, teaching undergraduate and graduate classes in gas reservoir engineering and pressure transient analysis, and serving on several graduate student committees. He is the editor of the SPE Reprint Series Vol. 52, Gas Reservoir Engineering, and Vol. 57, Pressure Transient Testing, and coauthor of SPE Textbook Series Vol. 9, Pressure Transient Testing and has published numerous papers and articles in industry journals and trade publications. He received a BS Physics from Abilene Christian University, a MS in Physics from the University of Washington, a PhD in Petroleum Engineering from Texas A&M University, and is a registered professional engineer in the state of Texas.
