Oil Reservoirs have been created by complex sedimentary and diagenetic processes, and modified by a history of tectonic change. Reservoirs are complex systems on all scales. Decisions such as pumping and injection, new well placement, and drilling in an active oil field, are typical of the complex relationships between reservoir engineering and oil field/reservoir management.

A reservoir's life begins with exploration that leads to discovery, which is followed by delineation of the reservoir, development of the field, production by primary, secondary, and tertiary means, and finally to abandonment. Integrated, sound reservoir management is the key to a successful operation throughout a reservoir's life. Further, the need to enhance recovery from the vast amount of remaining oil and gas-in-place, plus the global competition, requires better reservoir management practices. Reservoir engineering is the application of scientific principles to solve issues arising during the development and production of oil and gas reservoirs. This course covers the engineering operations involved in analysing the production behaviour of oil and gas wells, including well performance engineering, reservoir aspects of well performance, restricted flow into the wellbore, rate decline analysis, and fundamentals of artificial lift.

This course is designed to provide many tools and techniques to help address the challenges of providing a more reliable and sound reservoir engineering & management.

In addition to a wealth of classic information on the concepts and processes involved in reservoir engineering and management, the course presents insights about data acquisition, reservoir performance analysis & forecast, reservoir management economics and improved recovery processes. Further, the course is illustrated through a number of case studies, which will be shown to the participants to help them appreciate the concepts presented in the course.


Upon the successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:-

  • Become familiar with reservoir management, explain the integration of geoscience and engineering & know the reasons for integrating exploration and development technology
  • Ensure the proper execution of the reservoir management process
  • Illustrate the proper procedure for data acquisition, analysis and management which includes validation, storing, retrieval and application
  • Explain the role of reservoir models as well as the importance of reservoir surveillance
  • Apply the different methods of reservoir performance analysis and forecast & give emphasis on the integration of production/injection data, log data, pressure data and any subsurface data for analysis
  • Provide details on the reservoir management economics, which includes economic criteria, scenarios, economic evaluation, risk and uncertainties
  • Understand the improved recovery processes related to water flooding, thermal methods, chemical methods and EOR screening guidelines
  • Implement reservoir management plans for newly discovered fields, secondary and EOR operated fields
  • Plan the outlook and the next step & be ready with the current challenges and areas of further work for reservoir engineering and management
