Video Library

    Baobab LMS is a completely new approach to micro-learning. It is all video-based and covers concepts and applications in commercial software such as Petex IPM and KAPPA workstation. This unique method allows effective learning for Petroleum Engineering wherever and whenever you need it, i.e. performance support or help at the moment of need.

    In this ”Video Library” section, information is presented in the form of a searchable, digital library (or knowledge base) – informal learning, available 24/7 on any device.

    Whether you’re an experienced professional or just starting out, good training is vital to your success – but how much will you remember of that one-off training course? How up to date is the information you search for online? With Baobab, there’s another way to learn.


    Foundations covers the key concepts at the heart of Petroleum Engineering. Starting with the areas where most errors are made (data measurement quality, units and datums) we progress through fluid and rock properties and show how these are used to predict oil, gas and water flowrates and estimate reserves.

      Reservoir fluid composition, properties and classification, sampling, measurement and application in correlations.

    • Rock properties

      Rock properties

      An overview of rock properties (porosity, permeability, compressibility, saturations, wettability and capillary pressure) and their application and measurement.

    • Relative permeability and fractional flow

      Relative permeability and fractional flow

      Key concepts behind multiphase flow in the reservoir and applications in reservoir engineering.

    • Reserves estimation

      Reserves estimation
