Reservoir Engineering > Advanced Carbonate Reservoir Engineering - Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) 

Reservoir engineering methods as practised in carbonate fields will be addressed in this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT). Practical and actual carbonate reservoir problems and examples will be used to illustrate relevant subjects. Specific reservoir engineering problems related to the heterogeneity, fluid-rock interaction and the often fractured nature of carbonate rocks will be examined.

By the end of this VILT, you will have a deeper knowledge of modern reservoir engineering practices for carbonate reservoir development and production, including the construction and use of reservoir models.

This VILT will emphasise Reservoir Engineering applications in Carbonate fields in topic such as:

  • Rock properties of carbonate and fractured reservoirs
  • Carbonate reservoir characterisation
  • Reservoir fluid behaviour
  • Identification of main production mechanisms
  • Design and analysis of well tests
  • Production forecasting
  • Application of Decline Curve Analysis
  • Detailed modelling of wells and reservoirs
  • Water flooding in carbonate reservoirs
  • Application of EOR methods in carbonate reservoirs
  • Reserves and resource estimation
  • Carbonate reservoir simulation approaches, model construction and well, aquifer and fluid modelling
  • Development planning
  • Uncertainty handling and scenario methods

This VILT has been designed for experienced reservoir engineers with prior technical or engineering exposure to production activities in carbonate reservoirs. Petroleum engineers and geoscientists who require more than general knowledge of carbonate reservoir engineering will also find this VILT useful.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.
