Petrel Reservoir Engineering
Average client rating (based on 420 attendee reviews)
This course is designed to introduce reservoir engineers and asset teams to the interactive Petrel reservoir engineering tools used for the construction of simulation models.
In this course, you will build a 3D simulation model inside Petrel based on geological input data, add wells and well control rules, create black oil fluid models and rock physics functions, and submit the model to the simulators. Additional learining contents on Well engineering, upscaling/advanced cornerpoint gridding and some modeling options (aquifer creation, local grid refinement, creation of tartan grids, case conversion) are also discussed.
The hands-on exercises are structured to enable the trainee apply the software skills obtained during training and cover most of the Petrel simulation workflows. Overall, pre-processing and post-processing of simulation data will be done within the Petrel environment.
- Introduction to Petrel Reservoir engineering workflows
- Overview of the Petrel user interface focusing on typical reservoir engineering workflow

- Simulation study exercises
The goal of the simulation study exercises is to give you the opportunity to apply most of what you have learned during this course in a more realistic scenario. Each exercise contains a description of the scenario and the main steps. The idea is to let you solve the designed scenario tasks by yourself. Few tips are given in each exercise to encourage you to find your own way to complete the task.
