Practical Reservoir Surveillance and Management Techniques for Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Oil Recovery Projects
This 1-day course covers the practical aspects of project surveillance and the impact of reservoir management and surveillance on project economics for both conventional and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects. Examples will include problems to be solved in class. Each participant will receive a workbook with copies of the instructors’ presentations and solutions to the class problems.
Why You Should Attend
Reservoir management and surveillance is even more important in EOR projects than they are in conventional operations. This popular course is an excellent opportunity to improve your skills in this important area.
Who Should Attend
This course is for petroleum, reservoir, production and facilities engineers, as well as managers, and other professionals interested in practical reservoir surveillance and management techniques for primary, secondary and tertiary oil recovery.
Attendees must bring a laptop computer to class.
