The course examines the standard reservoir engineering processes and techniques, particularly their interface with geoscience activities. It follows, and illustrates with examples, the use of subsurface data and the techniques employed during the construction of a reservoir model. The course covers three related main themes - building a static reservoir model; developing a dynamic reservoir numerical simulation model; reservoir management during the producing life of a field.
This is a four-day classroom course, comprising a mixture of lectures and case studies.
The course is aimed at geoscientists and professionals from other disciplines who interface with reservoir engineers in their regular work, or who wish to obtain a broad grounding in reservoir engineering techniques. It is appropriate for reservoir or production geoscientists at an introductory level and for exploration geoscientists at an intermediate or advanced level.
Participants will learn to:
The material covered in this course is built around the process of the construction of a reservoir model. The process is in three parts:
The static reservoir model refers to the description of the reservoir in terms of reservoir and fluid distribution, volumetrics and reservoir zonation to identify the main potential flow units.
The dynamic model builds on the static model to include the consideration of fluid flow in the reservoir, near the wellbore and through the production tubing to the wellhead. The dynamic model is often constructed using a numerical reservoir simulator, but there are analytical techniques which can be used to predict fluid flow in the reservoir.
Reservoir management is a key activity for a producing field, performed with the general objective of maximising economic recovery. Monitoring is performed by measuring production and pressures in the reservoir and the results drive the forward activity programme and production forecasts.
Throughout the class the use of complex mathematics has been avoided in order not to upset sensitive geologists and the material concentrates on the principles rather than the detailed work of the reservoir engineer.
