About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) 

This Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) teaches an analytical method to get a reasonable estimate of the maximum expected Ultimate Recovery by a viscously dominated displacement process like water, polymer or gas injection. Such estimation will allow the Reservoir Engineers to:
  1. Identify the gap between the current booked ultimate recovery based on the current development plan. Based on this gap, further analysis of the sweep process in actual reservoirs can be done with further activities identified to manage their floods optimally,
  2. Perform a portfolio analysis that will help prioritise the company’s investments.
The analytical estimation method combines estimations of micro and macro displacement efficiency to derive an estimate for the maximum expected Ultimate Recovery. The micro displacement is based on an estimation using the Buckley Leverett approach and the macro displacement is derived using a Dykstra-Parson like approach, including estimates of non-flooded part of the reservoir by geological factors or well coverage aspects. The analytical estimation has its limitation like lack of gravity or capillary effects. However, the understanding gained could lead to further insights and improve field activities. The method is applied in an Excel spreadsheet in combination with Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), allowing for fast analysis and parameter sensitivity studies.   This VILT will be delivered online in 2 half-day sessions comprising 4 hours per day, with 2 breaks of 10 minutes per day. Course Duration: 2 half-day sessions, 4 hours per session (8 hours in total)
