Integrated Reservoir Management

This course will cover the basic techniques used in modern reservoir management by asset management teams.  Data acquisition, analysis, and modeling will be covered.  The reservoir model, production operations, and reservoir management economics will also be discussed.  Participants will take part in case studies that include new field, mature fields, waterfloods, and enhanced recovery projects.  Integrated management examples for new and mature fields and for a waterflooding will be discussed in a workshop environment.

    Day 1

    Reservoir Management Concepts and Processes 

    • Reservoir management concepts
    • Reservoir management process
    • Management environment
    • Integrated Reservoir Model

    On the first day, participants will learn about the basic reservoir management concepts and the basic reservoir management process.  Management environment and the integrated reservoir model will also be covered.

    Day 2

    Characterization and Analysis 

    • Reservoir characterization
    • Petrophysical analysis
    • Depositional environments and systems
    • Pore System Model

    Participants will learn about reservoir characterization and petrophysical analysis on this day.  Depositional environments and systems will also be discussed.  The Pore System Model will be covered on this day of the course.

    Day 3

    Statistical Analysis and Performance Analysis 

    • Statistical analysis of production and pressure data
    • Static Model
    • Reservoir performance analysis

    On day three participants will learn about the statistical analysis of production and pressure data.  The static model will also be covered.  Reservoir performance analysis will be discussed.

    Day 4

    Dynamic Model 

    • The Dynamic Model
    • Building the Dynamic Reservoir Model
    • Calibrating the Dynamic Model
    • Predicting performance

    The Dynamic Model will be the main focus of day four.  Participants will learn about building the dynamic reservoir model along with how to calibrate it.  From there, participants will learn how to predict performance using the dynamic reservoir model.

    Day 5

    Selecting a Project

    • Economic Evaluation Model
    • Investment Decisions
    • Project Selection
    • Applications

    On the last day, participants will learn about choosing the correct projects.  The Economic Evaluation Model will be covered, along with investment decisions and project selection.  The day will end with a discussion on how to apply what they have learned in a real world setting.
