Petroleum Geosciences > Reservoir Engineering for Geosciences Professionals and Other Disciplines

About this Training Course

Reservoir engineering methods, data and models are used in the E&P business to describe and optimise hydrocarbon recovery. This 5 full-day course addresses reservoir engineering concepts and methods to enable cross-disciplinary team work and the smooth exchange of ideas and experience.

In this course, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of reservoir engineering and a broad range of modern reservoir engineering principles and practices for reservoir development and production, including the estimation of oil and gas reserves. The topics covered in this course will be illustrated with practical and actual field cases. Some self-study or reading will be required from participants.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe use of permeability and fluid saturation in reservoir engineering.
  • Explain the assessment of hydrocarbon resources and recoverable reserves estimation.
  • Understand analysis and modelling of fluid behaviour.
  • Explain oil and gas reservoir performance.
  • Describe material balance methods in oil and gas reservoirs.
  • Understand design and analysis of well tests.
  • Understand analysis and production of producing wells and forecasting methods.
  • Describe fluid displacement at the pore and reservoir scale.
  • Explain reservoir simulation approaches.
  • Describe tools for handling the uncertainty in reservoir analysis.
  • Describe various recovery methods from primary to enhanced recovery.

This course is intended for professionals with prior technical or engineering exposure to exploration and production activities. Targeted participants include geoscientists, production engineers, petrophysicists and petroleum engineers involved with exploration and development of oil & gas reservoirs. The course will also benefit petroleum engineering team leaders as well as IT staff and support staff who work with reservoir engineering, development and production departments.

Learn what past participants have said about EnergyEdge training courses

A well organized training. Is very easy for other disciplines who have very little knowledge of RE to understand the topic.

Geologist, SHELL

It is a good training. The instructor is full of experience and able to answer all the questions from participants.

TDM – Development, Sabah Shell

Well organised and useful course.

Operating Integrity Engineer, Sakhalin Energy

The trainer did a great job! Keep it up!

Geologist, Mubadala Petroleum

From a non-technical background, I would highly recommend this course as a means of introduction to the key concepts defining reservoir engineering.

Planning Upstream, PETRONAS Australia

The trainer’s extensive industry experience enabled real life examples to be discussed in the more difficult concepts of Reservoir Engineering.
