The root of petroleum reservoir management are to be found in the reservoir engineering, taken in its broadest sense as the technology that deals wit the movement of fluid into, out of and through the geological formation of the earth by means of wells and well systems. Reservoir management and reservoir engineering are not identical. Reservoir management infers the existence of goals toward which
the reservoir technology is directed. At the hearth of reservoir management is the idea that the technological implementation to achieve those goals will be specific to each individual reservoir. This point is emphasized throughout the course by means of examples and cases histories.
Although elements of petroleum reservoir management have been practiced almost since reservoirs were fi...
TOTAL WELL PRODUCTION OPTIMIZATION FOR OIL AND GAS FIELDS: WELL COMPLETION AND PERFORMANCE FOR HEAVY OIL
You obtain a comprehensive coverage of the use of nodalä (or systems) analysis in the petroleum producing industry. Your new understanding allows you to fully appreciate how changes in one part of a production system affect the system as a whole, and hence, the field productivity. You work with field conditions and system profitability for increased bottom line results. Nodalä systems analysis has been sweeping the industry in the past few years. With it as a tool, you can achieve a much keener overview of the system, while increasing the predictability (and production) of each part of the system. This is a key tool for turning around the "Band-Aid" approach that ha
This course will cover various aspects of waterflood theory, diagnostics, planning, evaluation and analysis. Both analytic and numerical techniques to evaluate waterflood will be presented. The method of teaching will be a combination of slides, discussions and hands-on practice problems. Students will benefit from the presentation of actual results of instituted waterfloods around the world. The course assumes students to have basic knowledge of waterflood, some experience in oil-field operations and familiarity with functions of Excel ™ and Windows™ based software.
Each attendee must bring a laptop computer with Microsoft operating system.
