Petroleum Reservoir Engineering

Course Description

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.

 

 

Who Should Attend

  • Engineers (production engineers, reservoir engineer and field engineer), and well-site geologist, and other staffs from an operating and/or service and/or consultant and engineering company involved in oil and gas production and engineering process.
  • Engineers and technical personnel involving with appraisal or field development project, and/or reservoir management team intending to enhance their technical skills and level of confidence in decision making by identifying reservoir problems issues, etc.
  • Front line engineers from an operating and/or service and/or consultant and engineering company requires improving their technical skills with high level of confidence to adapt appropriate technology to optimize the production performance and better reservoir management.
  • Engineers or geoscientists who will occupy the position of reservoir engineer, any other technically trained individual that desires a more in-depth foundation in reservoir engineering.
  • Geologists, geophysicists, engineers, engineering trainees, technical managers, technical assistants, technicians, chemists, physicists, technical supervisors, service company personnel, sales representatives, data processing personnel, and support staff working with reservoir definition, development and production.
  • Reservoir engineers, production engineers, chemical engineers, chemists and senior operators who work in oil and gas industry.
