Reservoir Management - RM
Discipline: Reservoir Engineering
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): MHA, a Sproule Company, Stanley Kleinsteiber
The principles of sound reservoir management are presented with emphasis on practical applications. Actual case histories are used to study both successes and failures. An interdisciplinary synergistic approach to efficient reservoir management is detailed with the goal of optimized profitability. The significance of each component and the importance of timing and cost/benefit analysis are emphasized. Reservoir management models for optimum field development and field operating plans are analyzed. The interdisciplinary reservoir management approach shows how each technology or function contributes to the plan and how checks and balances are developed. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.
This course covers conventional reservoirs.
