Reservoir Simulation Strategies - RSS
Discipline: Reservoir Engineering
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Richard Henry
This course is designed to give an introduction to the fundamental and practical aspects of modern reservoir simulation. Particular emphasis is placed upon the available data and its integration into a data set that reflects a coherent model of the reservoir. These aspects are reinforced with small practical examples run by groups of the course participants. The course is organized in morning lecture sessions and afternoon practical sessions. One personal computer is included, at additional cost, for each two participants.
This course covers conventional reservoirs.
"Practical exercises. Liked understanding the theory and the problems/limitations that can arise." - Reservoir Engineer, United Kingdom
"All subjects were very important. The way that was concatenated the theory with real field examples." - Reservoir Engineering Advisor, United States
Reservoir and petroleum engineers who will be actively using reservoir simulation.
You Will Learn:
- Apply the principles of reservoir engineering to numerical modeling
- Set up, run, and analyze the results for single-well, pattern, and full-field models
- Prepare fluid and rock property data in the manner required for simulation studies
- Identify and eliminate causes of numerical problems
- Perform a history match
- Use the matched model to predict future performance under a variety of assumptions
- Buckley Leverett displacement
- One dimensional water oil displacement
- Model components, types, and modern gridding methods
- Two dimensional displacement
- Grid orientation and refinement
- Routine and special core analysis
- Single phase up-scaling of geo-cellular model parameters
MR. RICHARD HENRY has ten years management experience of multidisciplinary teams including construction projects, JIT manufacturing, and (petroleum) field audits. He has twenty-five years reservoir engineering experience including simulation, field management and reserves determination, and forty years' experience in programming, software engineering, and information technology. He holds a BSc Industrial Engineering (Honors, 1987) and a MSc in Petroleum Engineering (1997) from the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad. He is a graduate of Texaco's elite (30 candidates selected worldwide) and intensive (6 month) reservoir management training program (1998).
In-House Course Presentations
All courses are available for in-house presentation to individual organizations. In-house courses may be structured the same as the public versions or tailored to meet your requirements. Special courses on virtually any petroleum-related subject can be arranged specifically for in-house presentation. For further information, contact our In-House Training Coordinator at one of the
