Course description

Reservoir Engineering for Geoscientists

The course examines reservoir engineering processes, techniques and terminology, particularly those that interface with geoscience activities. The material is structured around the three-part process of building a reservoir model: (1) building a static model to identify the main flow units, (2) developing a dynamic model to predict fluid flow in the reservoir, and (3) implementing a life-of-field reservoir management plan to maximize economic recovery. Numerous examples illustrate the use of subsurface data and the techniques employed during the construction of a reservoir model. The focus is on the principles rather than the detailed work of the reservoir engineer; the use of complex mathematics is avoided.

The manual will be provided in digital format and you will be required to bring a laptop or tablet computer to the course.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The course is aimed at geoscientists, petrophysicists and others who interface with reservoir engineers on a regular basis, as well as anyone who wishes to obtain an understanding of reservoir engineering techniques.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

  • Effectively interact with reservoir engineering colleagues.
  • Interpret original fluid contacts, understand saturation vs height relationships and estimate original hydrocarbon in-place volumes for oil and gas reservoirs.
  • Differentiate the physical and chemical properties of hydrocarbons and their description through phase diagrams.
  • Recognize the strengths and weaknesses of well tests and their analysis.
  • Analyze production performance and describe production enhancement techniques.
  • Contrast static and dynamic reservoir models and assess the merits of reservoir numerical simulation.
  • Assess the value of reservoir management for forecasting production profiles and maximizing economic hydrocarbon recovery from a producing field over the complete life cycle.
  • Examine the controls on fluid flow in the reservoir and reservoir drive mechanisms.
