This Five-day course is designed for professionals who work with, or rely on, analyses provided by reservoir engineers, or who otherwise need to understand and communicate with them on a technical or commercial basis. Those who would benefit from this course include geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, facility and operations engineers, drilling and production engineers, pipeline engineers, and economic/business analysts. The course provides an understanding of the underlying value and limitations of the analyses provided by reservoir engineers, as well as a better understanding of the required data and assumptions involved in the practice of reservoir engineering. Participants will obtain an understanding of routine reservoir engineering calculations, the data required to perform these calculations, the primary tools and techniques used by reservoir engineers, and the information gained by the application of those techniques. The limitations of the extrapolation of the results to the decision making process will also be covered. Throughout the course, the impact of the data, assumptions and technical limitations are related to the economic impact they have on reservoir management.


At the end of the training, the participants will be able to:

  • Learn how reservoir engineers assess the value of an asset
  • Understand the physics of petroleum reservoirs
  • Learn how primary reserves are estimated based on production and reservoir pressure data
  • Understand how evaluation and recovery of oil and gas reserves is done (classification of reserves, recovery factors, volumetric of oil and gas reservoirs)
  • Learn how well and reservoir performance are characterized using pressure transient data
  • Learn how flow simulation is used to forecast production
  • Know concepts of fluid flow through porous media
  • Know fluid properties in reservoir engineering (fluid types, phase behaviour, correlations, and equations of state)
  • Gain knowledge of fundamental rock properties (porosity, wettability, capillary pressure, permeability, relative permeability and other concepts)
  • Know how material balance calculations is performed (material balance concept, drive index, water influx models)
  • Know about decline curve analysis
  • Understand reservoir simulation basics
  • Know about enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) methods
  • Facilitate communication between reservoir engineers and geoscientists

Geologists, Geophysicists, Petrophysicists, Facility and Operations Engineers, Drilling and Production Engineers, Pipeline Engineers, and Economic/Business analysts.
