N997 - Applied Reservoir Engineering

Course Overview
This course aims to provide the practicing reservoir engineer with a range of analysis techniques and tools relevant to contemporary field development trends. Fundamental concepts will be discussed to ensure a solid foundation for understanding the applicability and limitations of the techniques presented. The learning will be supported and reinforced by examples and exercises.

This is a five-day classroom course comprising lectures, worked examples, and exercises.  Problems will focus on understanding the concepts, and may require the use of a scientific calculator or laptop computer, but no specialized engineering software applications will be used.

Participants will learn to: 
•	Develop a robust understanding of the key concepts underpinning the practice of 
        reservoir engineering; encompassing rock and fluid properties, and the physics of multiphase flow in porous media.
•	Implement a range of analysis techniques to quantify recoverable volumes and productivity of oil, gas, 
        and gas-condensate wells and reservoirs.
•	Expand traditional techniques to provide familiarity and understanding of more contemporary reservoir 
        analysis for improved and enhanced recovery techniques, and resource-play reservoirs.
•	Determine the parameters for resource classification.
•	Assess and apply techniques to assess reserves volumes.
•	Illustrate the appropriate uses of reservoir simulation and provide practical guidelines for planning
        reservoir modelling studies.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
