Course Description
This five-day course is designed to introduce technical professionals to the fundamental aspects of reservoir engineering. Theoretical concepts coupled with numerous practical case histories are presented to assist reservoir and exploitation engineers in their primary functions - the determination of oil and gas reserves and the maximization of hydrocarbon recovery under primary, secondary, and tertiary schemes. Field development of unconventional gas reservoirs including shale gas, tight gas and coalbed methane (CBM) will also be covered. The application of horizontal wells and a number of new technologies will also be reviewed. The sessions will include a number of relevant class problems and examples.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Instructor

Saad Ibrahim has over 30 years of diversified experience in the Petroleum Industry in Western Canada and internationally, including projects in Libya, Yemen, Kazakstan, Venezuela and Argentina, with special expertise in reservoir engineering with emphasis on field development planning, evaluation of depletion strategies and production optimization of a wide spectrum of oil and gas fields. Other interests include well test planning and analysis using state of the art commercially-available software; the implementation of secondary and tertiary recovery schemes; and technical and economic evaluations of oil and gas properties for acquisition and divestiture ventures. He graduated from the University of Alexandria (Egypt) with B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering in 1973, and obtained a post-graduate diploma from the University of Calgary in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering in 1983. Saad is a member of the APEGGA, SPE and CIM.

April 4, 2017, Production Engineer in Training, Calgary
The training was one of my best
November 7, 2016, Sr. Production Tech, Calgary
Great course and Saad teaches it very well.
March 16, 2016, , Calgary
Great course for professionals in the oil and gas industry with little/no experience with reservoir engineering.
March 16, 2016, Production Engineer, Calgary
Great material and very well delivered. I would recommend this course to anyone who is starting out in reservoir engineering or who is working in another discipline but would benefit from some reservoir knowledge.
May 11, 2015, Exploitation Engineer, EIT, Calgary
The course was interesting and delved into how to deal with unconventional and horizontal plays when evaluating reserves which is hard to come by in a course. There is still a fair amount of conventional math but overall it was a useful experience.
September 26, 2014, Engineer In Training, Calgary
Course was excellent as a refresher but would also recommend to anyone who wants an introduction to reservoir engineering.
September 26, 2014, Junior Engineer, Calgary
The course was a great first step into reservoir engineering. Provides good basis of knowledge that's very applicable.
July 28, 2014, Facilities Engineer, Calgary
Great introductory course for other disciplines. (Facilities)
July 28, 2014, Development Engineering EIT, Calgary
A very good course. The information provided will be extremely helpful in helping me develop in my role. Would recommend this course to anyone who is considering it.
March 10, 2014, Geologist, Calgary
This was a great course and helped to give me a fundamental understanding of reservoir engineering. I would recommend this course to anyone who is not a reservoir engineer and is seeking to gain a better understanding of how it ties into petroleum geology and exploration/development.
March 7, 2014, Senior Technical Specialist, Calgary
This is a very good course with updated information and the latest techniques of reservoir engineering. The instructor starts with the fundamentals and develops your knowledge to more challenging and important areas.
December 10, 2013, Reservoir Engineer, Houston
Excellent course to get exposed to the basics of reservoir engineering.
November 6, 2013, Reservoir Engineer, Houston
Great course. Excellent refresher course as well as an insight to what techniques are currently being used within the industry. As an experienced reservoir engineer working in the industry, I believe the course had great value.
November 1, 2013, Global GGRE Analyst, Houston
Excellent course, well rounded and full of good material. The example problems require a scientific calculator in order to work successfully (or a slide rule). Keep that in mind and bring your own as they do not provide one.
October 29, 2013, Drilling Engineer, Houston
This course was very helpful for me. Since I am not a petroleum engineer, I did not have the background in reservoir engineering. The instructor was great and I really enjoyed the practical applications and case studies.
October 4, 2013, DA, Calgary
Overalll the course was very organized and well structured. It has provided me with an enhanced understanding of reservoir management. The instructor was knowledgeable and skilled and was able to keep the class alert and engaged even after the heavy lunchtime meals.
September 30, 2013, Production Engineer, Calgary
The professor was excellent and made the material jump from theoretical to realistic problems through examples and theory. The overall objective to introduce Reservoir concepts was met and exceeded by this course.
September 30, 2013, In-Situ Development Lead, Calgary
This is very good course (it is very pragmatical), good examples.
September 30, 2013, Exploitation Engineer, Calgary
This is a very useful course that covers a significant amount of material. I would highly recommend this course to junior Engineers working in the upstream petroleum industry.
