This course will teach the participants how to develop oil and gas reservoirs and fields in order to recover the maximum volume of oil and gas reserves with a minimum investment of time and capital resources. Both the carbonate and siliciclastic reservoirs are covered as well as the basic elements of a reservoir characterization study which includes elements of petroleum geology, geophysics, petrophysics Geochemistry and Geostatistics.
Development geology does not stop at the end of the initial development phase, many reservoirs are redeveloped as technology advances. In the recent past, horizontal drilling, 3D and 4D seismic WAZ seismic have been used to rejuvenate or redevelop fields and capture additional reserves by detecting untested fault blocks and un-drained areas in developed reservoirs.
Participants learn, through hands-on exercises, to compile a development plan for a field that emphasizes optimal recovery. Emphasis is placed on the selection of rock, log and test data to distinguish reservoir and non-reservoir rocks, and to determine the lower limit of pay.
Who Should Attend
Development Geologists, Development Geophysicists, Reservoir Engineers, Drilling Engineers Petrophysicists; log analysts; Drilling Engineers, Data Managers and Geo-technicians and any other persons involved in the appraisal and development of oil & gas reservoirs.
