Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Online Training Course?

This PetroKnowledge Applied Reservoir Engineering & Management online 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. This PetroKnowledge online 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 online training course on Applied Reservoir Engineering & Management 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 online 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.
