Introduction to Reservoir Engineering and Nodal Analysis

The course discusses basic concepts of Reservoir Engineering and introduces Nodal analysis. The course starts with a description of Reservoir Rock and Reservoir Fluids, followed by an explanation of Inflow and Outflow perfromance.

Exercises are performed in the class to explain the impact of different variables in well production and production optimization process.

This course is a very good introduction to Production Engineering Programs.
