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

Day 1
  • Reservoir drive mechanisms and associated production problems
  • Reservoir Fluids: fluid properties: GOR, Bubble point Pressure; three phase diagram
  • Tool conveyance using tractors and coiled tubing
Day 2
  • Depth control in cased hole wells using GR and CCL
  • Well completions applied to vertical, deviated, horizontal, and multi-laterals
  • Pressure control system for rigless operation
Day 3
  • Justifying acquiring reservoir monitoring logs
  • The physics of pulsed neutron logging (PNL)
  • Capture mode in PNL logging
Day 4
  • Carbon/Oxygen (C/O) mode
  • Cased Hole Formation Resistivity
  • Slim hole induction logging in plastic (non-conductive) casings.
Day 5
  • Workshop using capture mode for evaluating water and gas saturation
  • Workshop on interpreting resistivity logs behind the casing..
