Reservoir Engineering for Non-Reservoir Engineers

This course covers the fundamentals, with a primary focus on understanding fluid flow in porous media.  Participants will learn reservoir engineering based on the application of analytical techniques.

Key reservoir engineering concepts such as reservoir drive mechanisms, volumetrics, petroleum fluid properties and recovery factors will be introduced as tools.  Typically, around 30 percent of the course will be “learn by doing", which includes exercises, and group discussions.
