    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.

    Module 1: Reservoir Engineering Overview

    Module 2: Fundamentals of Reservoir Fluid Phase behavior (Part 1)

    Module 3: Fundamentals of Reservoir Fluid Phase behavior (Part 2)

    Module 4: Darcy's Law and Fundamentals of Fluid Flow in Porous Media

    Module 5: Reservoir Rock Properties

    Module 6:
