    Introduction to Reservoir Engineering - (Remote Instructor-Led Series)

    This course will introduce participants to the basics of reservoir engineering. It will cover the role of reservoir engineers in exploration and production. Participants will also learn about fluid and rock properties used in reservoir engineering applications and the fundamental concepts of fluid flow in porous media. Multiphase situations, types of oil and gas reservoirs, reservoir drive mechanisms, the basics of material balance and decline curve analysis, and reserve definitions will also be discussed
