    Learning Outcomes

    On completion of this course you will be able to...

    • 1Identify key reservoir rock and fluid properties from surface and down-hole measurements and explain their application in reservoir engineering. Explain how fluid flows in the reservoir and describe the use and application of relative permeability curves for multi-phase flow
    • 2List and discuss the main techniques for reserves estimation and their strengths and weaknesses. Discuss the concepts of performance trend analysis
    • 3Explain the principle and limitations of the material balance method and the influence of drive mechanisms on the recovery factor. Build a material balance model for a new oil field development. Perform history matching and run production forecasts (MBAL)
    • 4Describe the concepts and techniques of well testing and pressure transient analysis. Demonstrate the application of the key interpretation methods (Saphir)
    • 5Appraise and justify the importance of formation evaluation as part of accessing and producing hydrocarbons; apply the principles of formation evaluation to field developments
    • 6Distinguish between IOR and EOR techniques and explain the principal methods employed in secondary and tertiary recovery
    • 7Explain the key concepts and models used in reservoir performance prediction. Demonstrate how to run pressures and rates forecasts (MBAL, Rubis)
    • 8Identify the main elements of a reservoir management strategy. Explain how uncertainties are mitigated and list key reservoir monitoring and surveillance techniques
    • 9Explain how unconventional reservoir analysis differs from traditional methods. Illustrate with practical applications for field performance matching and prediction (Citrine, Topaze)
