About this Training Course

The Advanced Reservoir Engineering course will address modern practical aspects of reservoir engineering during 5 full-days packed with lectures, virtual exercises, discussions and literature reviews. The participants’ understanding of fundamental concepts and modern practical reservoir engineering methods will be deepened and a wide range of topics will be addressed.

This course will emphasise reservoir engineering applications and include topics such as:

  1. Rock properties of clastic and carbonate reservoirs
  2. Reservoir characterisation
  3. Reservoir fluid behaviour
  4. Identification of main production mechanisms
  5. Design and analysis of well tests
  6. Production forecasting
  7. Application of Decline Curve Analysis in mature fields
  8. Detailed modeling of wells and reservoirs
  9. Water flooding
  10. Application of EOR methods
  11. Reserves and resource estimation
  12. Reservoir simulation approaches, model construction and well, aquifer and fluid modelling
  13. Development planning
  14. Uncertainty handling and scenario methods

Depending on the background and requirements of the participants, some topics may be given more emphasis.

In this course, reservoir engineering methods will be addressed which are of use in the daily reservoir engineering practice. The focus will be on practical applicability. Use is made of practical and actual reservoir engineering problems and examples to illustrate relevant subjects. By attending this course, participants will have a deeper knowledge of modern reservoir engineering practices for reservoir development and production, including the construction and use of reservoir models.

The course is intended for experienced reservoir engineers with prior technical or engineering exposure to production activities. Petroleum engineers and geoscientists who require more than general knowledge of reservoir engineering will also find this course useful. Participants are invited but not obliged to bring a short presentation (max of 15 minutes) on a practical problem they encountered in their work. This will then be explained and discussed in the this class. A short test or quiz will be held at the end the this course.

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.
