  • Course Content
This course will be delivered virtually through PetroAcademy. PetroAcademy integrates multiple learning activities, such as reading assignments, self-paced e-Learning activities, virtual instructor-led sessions, discussion forums, exercises, case studies, and quizzes.

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.

See demo of online learning and instructor-led modules.
Engineers and geoscientists now working in an asset environment where they need to better understand the practices and limitations of the methods and procedures employed by the reservoir engineers with whom they work. Participants should have three or more years of technical experience in the upstream petroleum industry.
Participants will learn how to:

  • Utilize the tools and techniques of the reservoir engineer
  • Apply the principles of reservoir engineering
  • Develop reservoir, well performance and asset management options
  • "This is Reservoir Engineering"
  • Reservoir rock properties
  • Reservoir fluid
  • Reservoir flow properties
  • Reservoir material balance
  • Reserves and resources
  • Pressure transient analysis
  • Decline curve analysis and empirical approaches
  • Reservoir fluid displacement
