Reservoir Fluid Properties: Preparation for Reservoir Engineering and Simulation Studies - RFP
Discipline: Reservoir Engineering
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Richard Henry
This course goes beyond the usual description of reservoir fluid properties. The underlying purpose is to be able to prepare the most accurate possible set of values of fluid properties for use in other engineering calculations. An understanding of the advantages of the application of both laboratory data and correlations will be provided. Extensive exercises are used to illustrate the principles and to test the consistency of measured data. Accordingly, participants are encouraged to bring their own PVT laboratory data to deconstruct in class. Equations of State calculations are introduced, and a tuning exercise is conducted on commercial software.
This course covers both conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
"Library of correlations was very impressive. Discussion of PVT and QCs was directly applicable to my job." - Reservoir Engineer, Oklahoma City, United States
"Overall a great course with a lot of practical application." - Reservoir Engineer, United States
Reservoir, production and facilities engineers who have a need to model the flow of oil, gas and water through reservoirs, wellbores, and surface facilities.
You Will Learn:

Mr. RICHARD HENRY is an independent reservoir simulation specialist who is either out on a sailboat or teaching for PetroSkills in his spare time. He has degrees in industrial and petroleum engineering, and has performed over fifty reservoir engineering studies over two decades on a variety of different simulation platforms, field sizes and reservoir types. Before discovering simulation, he audited reserves of oil and gas fields in Latin America and West Africa, and ran multi-national, multi-disciplinary field optimization teams for Texaco. Mr. Henry holds a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and an M.S. in Petroleum Engineering from the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad.
