Basic Reservoir Engineering
This 5-day course presents the geologic origins and the important properties of petroleum reservoirs, and how to estimate their potential production. Participants learn through a combination of class problems, examples and workshops.
- Depositional environments, basic structures, and hydrocarbon traps
- Large scale exploration techniques
- The properties of reservoir rock, such as porosity, fluid saturation, pore volume, and permeability
- Reservoir fluid properties, such as API gravity, formation volume factor, gas solubility, density, and viscosity
- Common classes of reservoirs according to the types of fluids they contain and their characteristic performance
- Sources of reservoir data
Why You Should Attend
This intensive course will raise participant’s skill set beyond the fundamentals of reservoir engineering and provides an excellent opportunity to share ways to overcome challenges in the field.
Who Should Attend
This course is for engineers and technologists who want to learn more about reservoir engineering.
Participants should have a bachelor’s degree and two to four years of oilfield experience. Attendees must bring laptop to class.
