Course overview

Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering provides a comprehensive overview of key reservoir engineering concepts.The course begins with an overview of fluid properties and their behaviour under changing conditions; this is followed by an overview of material balance calculations which rely on PVT data. The next concept is fluid flow in porous media, which introduces permeability and Darcy’s Law. This leads on to a review of well testing and the analysis of pressure data, one of the main sources of permeability estimates. The next two topics cover what the reservoir engineer has to deliver – production forecasts and resource estimates. The final topic will be Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR).

The course is designed for

Professionals who work in collaboration with reservoir engineers, including well engineers, facilities engineers, process engineers, economists, petrophysicists and geoscientists who have just started working in an integrated subsurface team.
