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
- Reservoir drive mechanisms and associated production problems
- Reservoir Fluids: fluid properties: GOR, Bubble point Pressure; three phase diagram
- Tool conveyance using tractors and coiled tubing
- Depth control in cased hole wells using GR and CCL
- Well completions applied to vertical, deviated, horizontal, and multi-laterals
- Pressure control system for rigless operation
- Justifying acquiring reservoir monitoring logs

Geoscientist or engineers who are responsible for field wide surveillance or reservoir monitoring programs.
As this course deals with physics of reservoir monitoring, an engineering or geosciences degree is recommended.
