Petroleum Reservoir Engineering
The aim of this short course is to provide with necessary knowledge in oil and gas reservoir engineering that introduces evaluation techniques to define characters and properties of a petroleum reservoir and helps formulate engineering solution of petroleum field related problems. Numerous engineering practices are covered. This course will help the development of a more complete "understanding" of the characteristics of oil and gas reservoirs. Data collection, integration and application directed toward maximizing recovery are stressed. Reservoir engineering equations are introduced with emphasis directed to parameter significance and an understanding of the results.
