Fundamentals of i) Reservoir Engineering [Fluid and Rock Properties; Drive mechanisms, productivity and ultimately recovery] and ii) flow simulation. Basic Well Testing is covered, to understand how they are carried out, their results analysed & what information is gained. Dynamic Simulators reviewed (Black Oil vs. Comp.), initialisation (Black Oil only).
Optimization of well numbers & their placement, lowering investment & operating costs while maintaining best industry practises & HSE covered. Resource definitions & their computation. Course ends on economics, Reservoir Engineers often responsible for reserves & economic assessment.
Participants split into teams for tutorial where they are provided with static model they must initialise & flow. Use model to test different FDP scenarios
Determine optimal development scenario. Compute in place & recoverable resources. Run cashflow and assess economics.
Teams given 20 minutes to present evaluation results, conclusions & recommendations on final day
Participants must have basic skills in PETREL, PETREL RE & ECLIPSE software (Schlumberger).
