|Basin Analysis Workshop: An Integrated Approach - BA|
|Integrated Reservoir Modeling - GRD|
|Reservoir Characterization: A Multi-Disciplinary Team Approach - RC|
|Naturally Fractured Reservoirs: Geologic and Engineering Analysis - FR|
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Rodolfo Camacho-Velazquez, Lawrence Teufel
This course covers geologic and engineering concepts, methodology, and technology used to characterize, evaluate, and manage naturally-fractured reservoirs. Applications and limitations of geologic and engineering procedures and tools are discussed. Field examples and case studies demonstrate the importance of integrated geologic and engineering studies in developing effective, economical reservoir management strategies for different types of reservoirs.
This course covers conventional reservoirs.
"Liked real case examples on reservoirs from different fields. Effects of hydrocarbon production on reservoir fluid behavior." - Senior Reservoir Engineer, Bahrain
"Excellent instructor, presentation material. The increased understanding of the effect of pore pressure and stress on the natural fractured reservoir." - Senior Reservoir Engineer, United States
Engineers and geoscientists interested in a multi-disciplinary approach to evaluating and predicting the overall effect of natural fractures on subsurface fluid-flow and subsequent reservoir performance.
You Will Learn:
MR. RODOLFO CAMACHO-VELAZQUEZ is a reservoir engineering consultant with extensive experience in researching naturally fractured reservoir dynamic characterization to estimate reserves and formation properties. He also has extensive experience in the analysis of flow of fluids in porous media considering the relevant equations that provide a better understanding of the mechanisms of fluid flow. Mr. Camacho-Velazquez is an expert in proposing new well test analysis techniques and interpretation methods of production data. He has proposed new models for naturally fractured reservoirs that provide explanation for production performance that cannot be obtained with traditional dual-porosity simulators, showing the importance of integrated reservoir characterization. He is an expert in well performance prediction for both single-phase and multiphase systems. Mr. Camacho-Velazquez has a PhD and MSc in Petroleum Engineering, both from the University of Tulsa, and a BSc in Geophysics Engineering from the National University of Mexico.
DR. LAWRENCE W. TEUFEL is a consultant focusing on naturally fractured reservoirs and petroleum-related rock mechanics projects. He was formerly the Professor of Petroleum Engineering and held the Langdon Taylor Chair at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology until he retired in 2011. He had a 20-year tenure at Sandia National Laboratories, where he was the principal investigator of several cooperative U.S. Department of Energy/industry projects working in the areas of hydraulic fracturing in tight-gas reservoirs, geologic characterization and fluid-flow simulation of naturally fractured reservoirs, and petroleum-related rock-mechanics studies on reservoir compaction and subsidence. He is an author of over 80 publications. He has received awards from the US National Committee for Rock Mechanics and the Society of Petroleum Engineers and has been a Distinguished Lecturer for the American Association of Petroleum Geologists and the Society of Petroleum Engineers. He received a BS degree in geology from Syracuse University, an MS degree in geology from Texas A&M University, and a PhD in geology from Texas A&M University.
