Client Testimonials

Being a geologist this course helped me a lot to understand about reservoir engineering
The knowledge of Mr. Ahmed was amazing and it was a pleasure to attend this course. The best thing was the few real time examples and scenarios presented
I really appreciated the case studies which were discussed during the class

Course Progression Map - EOR/IOR

Waterflood Management

This course will cover waterflooding and the distribution of immiscible fluids in a reservoir.  During this course, participants will also learn about the process of immiscible displacement in a reservoir along with the waterflood pattern options and its effects on the selection and orientation of flood performance.  Other concepts that will be covered include the prediction of waterflood performance by the application of classical waterflood predictions.  Analytical techniques and linear fractional flow theory will be discussed.  Participants will also be able to see a simulation of waterflooding.

    Day 1

    Introduction to Waterflooding 

    • General waterflooding
    • Effects of drive mechanisms

    Day one will focus on presenting the participants to waterflooding and helping them gain a general understanding of the subject.  Effects of drive mechanisms on waterflooding will also be covered on this day.

    Day 2

    Performance and Processes of Waterflooding 

    • Rock properties and waterflooding
    • Drainage process
    • Capillary pressure
    • Production performance

    On this day participants will learn about rock properties and what effect they can have on waterflooding.  They will also learn about the drainage process and capillary pressure.  Production performance in the understanding of reservoir and well behavior by studying produced fluid ratios (WOR, GOR, GLR) will also be covered.

     

    Day 3

    Flow Theory and Analysis Methods 

    • Displacement processes and linear fractional flow theory
    • Analytical Methods
    • Analysis of waterflood pattern mobility ratio
    • Pattern configurations
    • Waterflood performance efficiencies and predictions

    Day three of this course will introduce participants to displacement processes and the linear fractional flow theory.  Analytical methods such as Buckley-Leverett frontal advance model and Weldge prediction method will be covered.  Analysis of the waterflood pattern mobility ratio and pattern configuration will also be discussed.  The class will end with participants learning about the waterflood performance efficiencies and predictions.

    Day 4

    Analytical and Prediction Methods

    • Analytical methods
    • Prediction methods

    Day four will continue the discussion on analytical and prediction methods.  Stiles, Craig-Geffen-Morse, and Dykstra-Parsons are a few methods that will be covered on this day.

     

    Day 5

    Simulations and Field Examples 

    • Simulation of waterflooding and practical guidelines for reservoir simulators
    • Simulation of waterflooding using small and large scale models for calibration
    • Waterflooding field examples

    The last day of this course will include simulations of two types of waterflooding, reservoir simulator and small/large scale models for calibration.  The course will end with several waterflooding field examples. 

  • Instructors

     

    Can S. Bakiler is a reservoir engineering and field development expert, instructor and consultant for Schlumberger.

    His expertise in the reservoir engineering and exploitation of oil and gas reserves were developed through a 31 year career that began at Turkish Petroleum Corporation as a reservoir engineer. He worked on numerous reservoir evaluation and field development projects and he is an expert in integrated reservoir management and asset evaluation studies. His experience includes characterization, modeling and production optimization of reservoirs, heavy oil and EOR applications.

    He joined Schlumberger in 2005 where he has held roles as Senior Reservoir Engineer, Subsurface Team Leader and Field Development Plan Project Manager, among others. Since 2009, he is providing consultancy to Schlumberger in his areas of expertise, and also teaching Petroleum Production Engineering and Reservoir Management courses in the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey.

    He is NExT Reservoir Engineering and Reservoir Management instructor.

  • Audience

    Engineers being asked to evaluate the economics, production potential, and waterflood design for reservoirs that will be waterflooded or are potential waterflood candidates.

    How to get from the Airport to Oslo city

    When you get to Oslo Airport Gardemoen the easiest and fastest way to get to town is by taking the “Flytoget” (the airport express train). It takes only 21 minutes to get to Oslo Central Station. The ticket is 160 NOK, and can be bought with creditcards on special new credit card machines before you board the train. (Note: when going back to the airport you have to slide your card through the machine before and after the journey). Once at the Central Station it would be easiest to then take a taxi to the hotel.

    Please find the links to the train and bus schedules below:

    How to get to the Schlumberger offices in Asklakveien 14E

    The Underground station is a blue sign with a big T in a circle (“T-bane”). Buy a ticket before you get on the train (See Fares below). Take line number 5 towards Østerås and get off at Røa. The stop before Røa is called Hovseter.

    If you wish you can take a taxi from the hotel to Schlumberger’s offices. If you're traveling in a group, this may be cheaper and easier than catching the train. The trip will take approximately 15-20 minutes, depending a bit on traffic of course.

    10 minutes walk: When you get to Røa station you go to the other side (as though you are taking the train back) and start walking over the parking place and on to a small gravel road. Then continue straight through the housing area and past the parking place. You then take a left and continue straight on to the road makes a natural right turn. You will see Schlumberger’s offices on your left hand side.

    Fares (03/2009)

    Single ticket - NOK 25 (good for 1 hour, NOK 36 if bought from bus/tram driver)
    Flexikort (8-Trips) - NOK 180
    Dagskort (24-Hour Pass) - NOK 65
    7 dagers kort (7-Day Pass) - NOK 200
    Monthly Pass NOK 550 (transferable)

    All tickets are valid on buses, tram (trikken), metro (T-bane), boats and local trains within Oslo. Tickets have to be validated before starting the first trip.

    Note: In case you register from any of the following companies:
    Addax Petroleum, Amerada Hess, BG Group, ConocoPhillips, Gaz de France Suez, RWE Dea, Shell, Statoil or Talisman Energy a Purchase Order is required.
    Please provide the PO number in the appropriate field in the registration form and send a copy of the PO to paulsen2@slb.com
