This course will help the participants understand the essential aspects of reservoir engineering in unconventional resource plays enabling asset team members to make better field development decisions. The course will include topics related to reserves estimation, well testing, fluid evaluation sampling and well and reservoir dynamic modeling.
Shale gas plays are classified as unconventional resources for a reason, and by this point in the course you’ve seen most of them. From a reservoir engineering perspective, however, unconventional resources must still comply with conventional laws of physics, which means that most of our tools and methodologies apply, but in different way or focus. There are different ranges and scales to consider, but the fundamental approach is the same. This course covers a range of ‘conventional’ reservoir engineering subjects with special mention about application to shale gas reservoirs when appropriate.
This course covers the necessary fundamentals of reservoir engineering in shale plays. Participants are expected to gain a good understanding of the following key topics covered in this course:
Principles of reservoir engineering – Production mechanisms, fundamental fluid and rock properties, including capillary pressure, relative permeability, PVT behavior, and the differences between black oil and compositional fluids.
Workshops – field examples - fluid samples relative perm measurementDay 2
Well evaluation – well testing principles and philosophies, including pressure and rate transient analysis
Workshop – field examples – rate transient analysisDay 3
Reserves estimation – volumetric and decline curve analysis. Estimation of resources and reserves in shale gas plays, and the role of decline curve analysis and reservoir simulation.
Workshop – field examplesDay 4
Principles of reservoir simulation – static and dynamic modeling, including single-well and full-field modeling. Incorporating petrophysical and geomechanical data into the reservoir model and validating the models with production history.
Workshops – field examples of reservoir simulation in oil / gas shalesDay 5
Reservoir simulation with staged fractures in horizontal wells – dual porosity, discrete fracture network modeling, and matrix/fracture transfer functions. Evaluating the effectiveness of hydraulic fractures with pre and post stimulation analysis.
Workshop – field examples – Haynesville and Eagle Ford
