Course description

Course description
This course represents the core of our reservoir engineering program and the foundation for all future studies in this subject. Numerous engineering practices are covered, ranging from fluid and rock properties to simulation and field development planning. Proficiency in using Microsoft Excel to perform calculations and make graphs is desirable. Reservoir engineering is also presented in the context of a modern, multi-disciplinary team effort using supporting computer technology. An extensive manual and set of references are included. Are you ready to attend a PetroSkills Applied Reservoir Engineering course training class, school or short course? This is the best time to register.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Engineers or geoscientists who will occupy the position of reservoir engineer, and any other technically trained individual who desires a more in-depth foundation in reservoir engineering than is offered in the one-week Basic Reservoir Engineering and Reservoir Engineering for Other Disciplines courses.

Fantastic overview. The majority of learnings will not be directly applicable in my current job, but will help me better communicate with technical staff and make economic decisions.
