Course Description
This four-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. 

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

A great course for understanding the fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering. As a geologist this is very useful in helping me to understand the limitations of reservoir engineering and how I can assist reservoir engineers to better understand the subsurface.

Excelent course and good delivery

I not a Reservoir Engineer but I enjoyed a lot this class. It has formulas and concepts that probably I will never used, but understand lots of data related concepts that I hear a lot and now makes way more sense to me.

Great second-level course. Assumes basic knowledge. Some topics are really valuable; some unimportant. Over-all imparts vital information.

The class materials were very good for this course. Class exercises really helped to apply right away what we learnt. The teacher was excellent at delivering the material.
