COURSE OVERVIEW

A reservoir’s life begins with exploration that leads to discovery, which is followed by delineation of the reservoir, development of the field, production by primary, secondary, and tertiary means, and finally to abandonment. Integrated, sound reservoir management is the key to a successful operation throughout a reservoir’s life. Further, the need to enhance recovery from the vast amount of remaining oil and gas-in-place, plus the global competition, requires better reservoir management practices. Reservoir management is the application of scientific principles to solve issues arising during the development and production of oil and gas reservoirs.

This course is designed to provide many tools and techniques to help address the challenges of providing a more reliable and sound reservoir engineering & management. Participants can learn a wealth of classic information on the concepts and processes involved in reservoir engineering and management. The course presents insights about data acquisition, reservoir performance analysis & forecast, field development planning, reservoir management economics and improved recovery processes.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon the successful completion of the course, participants will know the following:

  • Use appropriate approaches in reservoir engineering and management
  • Be familiar with the appropriate data collection, analysis, validation and integration process
  • Illustrate the points of integration between the different disciplines (geoscience, engineering etc.) during the applications of the reservoir management concepts
  • applications
  • Ensure the appropriate execution of the reservoir management process
  • Use the Interdisciplinary Synergistic approach to efficient reservoir management
  • Include each reservoir management component and the importance of timing and cost/benefit analysis
  • Apply the different methods of reservoir performance analysis and forecast & give emphasis on the integration of production/injection data, pressure data and any subsurface data
  • Acquire an up to date knowledge on the improved recovery processes related to water flooding, thermal methods, chemical methods and EOR screening guidelines

TARGET AUDIENCE

Reservoir, Petroleum Operation and Production Engineers, Geologists, Geophysicists, field operation staffs, managers, government officials, and others involved with reservoir operations and management.

TRAINING METHODOLOGY

Our highly practical experiential learning method is results-oriented; based on an adult learning concept. The Reservoir Engineering and Management is designed as a blended environment of presentation; workshops; group work; practical exercises; field application/ case studies, analysis and several industry videos showing all processes; and general discussions. The course will include real case studies in the oil and gas industry. Most of the cases studies have been presented in international journals by the instructor.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training and measure the skill and ability of participants.
