    Petrel Reservoir Engineering - RILS (Remote Instructor Led Series), 5 days

    This is a Remote Instructor Led Series (RILS) training. The remote classroom delivery is a modality that takes advantage of the instructor led training content, while allowing the same content to be delivered remotely. All training sessions will be delivered online with no face-to-face classroom attendance.

    This course is based on Petrel Reservoir Engineering - 3 Day course syllabus.

    The course introduces reservoir engineers and asset teams to the interactive Petrel reservoir engineering tools to construct and manage simulation models.

    In this course, you will build a 3D simulation model inside Petrel based on geological input data.  Add wells, and well control rules, create black oil fluid models and rock physics functions, submit the model to the simulators, and modify it. The well and completion engineering workflow is introduced, and the history matching modification discussed (add aquifer, property modification, end point scaling, case conversion).

    The hands-on exercises are structured to enable the trainee apply the software skills obtained during training and cover most of the Petrel simulation workflows. Overall, pre-processing and post-processing of simulation data will be done within the Petrel environment.

    A simulation case study is given at the end of the course to apply most of what you have learned during this course in a more realistic scenario.

    The course will be delivered in five (5) sessions lasting ~ four (4) Hours each. An intensive agenda also implies a homework after each session. Hence full-time commitment is expected from participants.

    Each student will need the following to attend:

    1. Windows-based PC*
    2. USB Headset
    3. Internet Access capable for 720HD video-streaming
    4. Second monitor or tablet (highly recommended)
    5. Webcam (highly recommended)

    *Hands-on exercises will be performed using locally installed Petrel and INTERSECT software; hence client machine must satisfy min. requirements. Alternatively, practical sessions can be accessed through DELFI Cloud Environment (subject to availability).

    • Reservoir engineering in Petrel

    • Optimize chosen concept
    • Quantify sensitivities to model uncertainty

    The goal of the simulation study exercises is to give you the opportunity to apply most of what you have learned during this course in a more realistic scenario. Each exercise contains a description of the scenario and the main steps. The idea is to let you solve the designed scenario tasks by yourself. Few tips are given in each exercise to encourage you to find your own way to complete the task.
