Description

This five-day course represents the core of our reservoir engineering program and the foundation for all future studies in this subject. Numerous engineering practices are covered, ranging from fluid and rock properties to simulation and field development planning. Proficiency in using Microsoft Excel to perform calculations and make graphs is desirable. Reservoir engineering is also presented in the context of a modern, multi-disciplinary team effort using supporting computer technology.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • How to determine critical properties of reservoir rocks fluid (oil, water, and gas) PVT relationships
  • Calculate hydrocarbons initially in place using several methods
  • Assess reservoir performance with dynamic techniques
  • Determine the parameters that impact well/reservoir performance over time
  • Analyze well tests using standard well testing principles and techniques
  • Characterize aquifers
  • Determine reservoir drive mechanisms for both oil and gas reservoirs
  • Apply oil and gas field development planning principles
  • Forecast production decline

Course Outline

Day 1

  • Asset life cycles, professional roles, hydrocarbon reservoir descriptions
  • Porosity, permeability, compressibility, capillary pressure, wettability and relative permeability, averaging reservoir property data
  • Phase behavior of reservoir fluids, gas properties, oil properties, water properties, PVT sampling, and understanding PVT laboratory reports

Day 2

  • Calculate original hydrocarbons in-place with volumetric methods, build hydrocarbon volume vs depth relationships, and review reserve booking guidelines
  • Oil recovery material balance, Havlena-Odeh method, gas material balance, volumetric, compaction, water drive, and compartmentalized reservoirs
  • Oil well testing: radial flow theory, wellbore storage and skin, drawdowns, buildups, curve shapes, type curve solutions, pseudo steady state, steady state, average pressure estimates, PI and IPR relationships

Day 3

  • Gas well testing: pressure, pressure squared, real gas pseudo pressure solutions, rate sensitive skins, multi-rate testing, gas well deliverability
