It provides a recap of some of the basic concepts in Reservoir Engineering required to perform reservoir fluid flow calculations, and gives examples of the types of calculation that may be performed, and when these are required. The principles of how to define the material balance and flow calculations is established and how to solve the pressure equations. Practical issues around gridding, defining and controlling wells and upscaling are introduced.
