Reservoir Engineering for Non-Reservoir Engineers

This course covers the fundamentals, with a primary focus on understanding fluid flow in porous media.  Participants will learn reservoir engineering based on the application of analytical techniques.

Key reservoir engineering concepts such as reservoir drive mechanisms, volumetrics, petroleum fluid properties and recovery factors will be introduced as tools.  Typically, around 30 percent of the course will be “learn by doing", which includes exercises, and group discussions.

    Day 1

    Fundamentals & Darcy’s Law 

    • Reservoir engineering overview
    • Fundamentals of reservoir phase behavior
    • Darcy’s Law and fundamentals of fluid flow 

    Participants will be given a brief introduction to the course and what they can expect.  During this day fundamentals of reservoir phase behavior and fluid flow will be discussed.  Participants will also be introduced to Darcy’s Law.

    Day 2

    Well and Reservoir Concepts 

    • Reservoir Rock Properties
    • Fluid statics and fluid distribution
    • Reservoir drive mechanisms
    • Oil and gas well performance
    • Oil displacement concepts

    On this day, participants will be introduced to fluid statics and distribution along with reservoir drive mechanisms.  Oil and gas well performance will also be discussed.  Oil displacement concept will also be covered.

    Day 3

    Well Testing and Analysis

    • Hydrocarbon reserves volumetric method
    • Well Decline Curve Analysis
    • Material Balance Concepts
    • Principles Of Well Testing

    Day 3 will start with hydrocarbon reserves volumetric methods. Participants will learn decline curve analysis and material balance concepts.  They will also be discussing the principles of well testing during this day.  Participants will also learn about the development of the diffusivity equation and how to use it.
