About this Training Course 

The Advanced Reservoir Engineering Course addresses modern practical aspects of Reservoir Engineering during 5 days packed with lectures, classroom exercises, discussions and literature reviews. Participants’ understanding of fundamental concepts and modern practical reservoir engineering methods will be deepened and a wide range of topics will be addressed.

Participants are invited but not obliged to bring a short presentation (max. 15 minutes) on a practical problem they encountered in their work. This will then be explained and discussed in class.

 

In the course, reservoir engineering methods will be addressed which are of use in the daily reservoir engineering practice. Emphasis will be on mature and marginal fields. Use is made of practical and actual field problems and examples to illustrate relevant subjects.

Course topics include reservoir fluid behaviour, material balance, various reservoir simulation topics, enhanced recovery, well behavior and well testing, reserves estimation, production forecasting in mature fields, fluid displacement and EOR principles. Depending on the background and requirements of the participants some topics may get more emphasis.

At the end of the 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 Reservoir Engineers with a few years of practical experience and Petroleum Engineers and Geoscientists that require more than general knowledge of reservoir engineering. The course is also useful for Production and Reservoir Engineers, Petrophysicists, Geologists and Engineers involved with the exploration and development of oil and gas reservoirs, Petroleum Engineering team leaders, and specialist support staff working with Reservoir Engineering and development and production.

Participants are invited but not obliged to bring a short presentation (max. 15 minutes) on a practical problem they encountered in their work. This will then be explained and discussed in class.

Your course leader is an independent Reservoir Engineering Consultant. He provides project consultancy, quality assurance and reservoir engineering training for major oil companies, governments, engineering firms and other global customers. Before he retired from Shell in 2012, he held positions as Senior Reserves Consultant for the Middle East and Reservoir Engineering Discipline Lead. He is a petroleum engineering professional, with global experience, mostly in Shell companies and joint ventures (NAM, SSB, SCL, PDO, SKDBV). He has been involved in reserves and resource management, has extensive reservoir modelling and reservoir simulation expertise, and wide experience in the design and delivery of training programmes for employee development.
