Integrated reservoir management training course – 5 days

Suitable for: Petroleum and Reservoir Engineers and some experienced Geo-Scientists responsible for the day-to-day management of reservoirs.

The course provides a good understanding of the concepts and tools that can contribute to improving reservoir management by making it a multi-disciplinary process. It will give participants:

  • Awareness of how to increase the value of a hydrocarbon asset.
  • Knowledge of how to plan field developments and monitor reservoir performance.
  • An introduction to the technology and techniques involved in reservoir characterisation, simulation and surveillance.

 

Course Outline:
The specific content of the course can be tailored to meet the needs of the attendees.  This is an outline of the typical course:

Introduction to “Reservoir Management”

  • What do we mean by reservoir management
  • The sources and acquisition of reservoir data
  • The “old” sequential approach
  • The “new” integrated/ iterative way of reservoir management
  • The primary importance of reservoir characterisation

The Reservoir Management Process

  • The objective – increasing the value of a hydrocarbon asset
  • Possible targets – decreased risk, greater and earlier production, reduced costs, added flexibility
  • Planning field developments
  • Monitoring reservoir performance
  • Evaluating results by comparisons of actual performance with prediction

Understanding the Reservoir – the Technology Toolkit

  • Review of popular systems for static and dynamic reservoir modeling
  • The importance of applying the technology competently
  • Integration of geological, geophysical and engineering data
  • Reservoir characterization, describing the reservoir – the static model with static data
  • Reservoir simulation, describing the reservoir’s behaviour – the dynamic model with dynamic data
  • Reservoir surveillance – monitoring performance and analysing the data

Adding Economic Value

  • Techniques to maximize economic recovery
  • Minimising capital investment, operating costs and risk
  • Economic impact of changes to operating plans
  • How timing affects value
