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

    Abu Dhabi

    Abu Dhabi is the capital of and the second largest city in the United Arab Emirates. Abu Dhabi lies on a T-shaped island jutting into the Persian Gulf from the central western coast.

    Abu Dhabi has a hot climate. Sunny/blue skies can be expected throughout the year.

    Abu Dhabi

    The buildings in Abu Dhabi are too diverse to be characterised by one particular architectural style, especially as they have been built over a long period of time and drawn on a wide range of influences.

    Abu Dhabi is home to a number of cultural institutions including the Cultural Foundation and the National Theater. The Cultural Foundation is home to the UAE Public Library and Cultural Center. Various cultural societies such as the Abu Dhabi Classical Music Society have a strong and visible following in the city. The recently launched Emirates Foundation offers grants in support of the arts, as well as to advance science and technology, education, environmental protection and social development. The city also stages hundreds of conferences and exhibitions each year in its state-of-the-art venues, including the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) which is the Persian Gulf's largest exhibition center and welcomes around 1.8 million visitors every year. The Red Bull Air Race World Series has been a spectacular sporting staple for the city for many years, bringing tens of thousands to the waterfront. Another major event is the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC).

    The diversity of cuisine in Abu Dhabi is a reflection of the cosmopolitan nature of the society. Arab food is very popular and is available everywhere in the city, from the small shawarma to the upscale restaurants in the city's many hotels.

    Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) is the city's main aviation hub and the second busiest airport in the UAE.
