Basic Reservoir Monitoring

This course teaches you the basics of field surveillance and reservoir monitoring with the aid of reservoir monitoring tools such as PNL, C/O, and other tools.  You will learn how these may be applied to diagnose reservoir-wide behaviors such as water breakthrough, gas cap migration, and behind pipe commingling.  You will learn to evaluate water and gas saturations and determine resistivity behind the casing using hands-on, in-class workshop
