Reservoir Modeling


Who should Attend

This short course is intended for all engineers engaged in the oil and gas industry, in particular for those engineers involved with reservoir modeling.


Course Objectives

The course provides an overview of the frequently used tools in the petroleum industry to quantify the reserves using different oil and gas reservoir modeling. It is recommended to conduct a material balance evaluation prior to a simulation study. The results should be integrated into a 3D model for a better simulation. The Monte Carlo simulation was used to compute oil and gas using petrophysical parameters, which always involve a magnitude of uncertainty and, as such should be treated as random variables with distinct probability distributions.
