Why Choose this Training Course?

The training course is designed to identify the sources of the reservoir engineering data and highlight the benefits of integrating the engineering data in the reservoir management of the mature fields. Data acquisition and integration will be presented and the requirements for successful operation of the matured reservoir throughout its entire life will be emphasized.

The reservoir life cycle and the sequences of the production recovery mechanisms will also be discussed. The training course will clarify how the integrated and the sound reservoir management is the key to realize an effective development plan and a successful operation throughout the reservoir’s life. It will also provide the principles to manage the reservoirs and enhance the recovery from the remaining oil & gas-in-place. The successful applications of these reservoir management concepts will lead to achieve high recovery factors.

Reservoir engineering and management is a combination of science and art. Therefore, this PetroKnowledge training course will discuss the application of the scientific principles and concepts to solve issues arising during the development and production of oil and gas reservoirs. The analysis for the reservoir behaviour and the production performance will also be covered.  In addition, the training course will provide many tools and techniques to help address the challenges of providing a more reliable and sound reservoir engineering and management. The reservoir management economics and improved recovery processes will be presented together with case studies reflecting different fields.

This training course will feature:

  • Reservoir management process, components and plan
  • Reservoir engineering data
  • Reserves estimation and classification
  • Reservoir drive mechanisms and producing characteristics
  • Determination of hydrocarbon in place
  • Describing waterflooding
  • Waterflood monitoring and management
  • Oil recovery enhancement techniques
