Training course overview

Best practices of reservoir engineering represents very effective tools for evaluation of oil and gas reserves, primary, secondary, and tertiary recovery mechanisms. This course is designed to provide best practices of reservoir fluid flow in porous medium, characterization of five different reservoir fluids/sampling, reservoir drive mechanisms, material balance equation (MBE), oil well testing, water flooding, and  enhanced oil recovery methods (chemical, thermal, and miscible). This course provides best practices of reservoir engineering to maximize oil recovery through a lifecycle of an oil field with several examples and exercises plus industry video about all topics involved.

This Coventry Academy training course will feature:

  • Routine and Special Core Analysis (RCAL & SCAL) for reservoir rocks
  • Commercial Equations of State (EOS) currently used in the oil industry
  • Material Balance Equation (MBE) technique and its different applications
  • Single and multi-wells oil well testing techniques and their applications
  • Water flooding and Enhanced Oil recovery (EOR) applications

What are the goals?

By the end of this Coventry Academy training course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply volumetric and material balance equations to calculate reserves
  • Understand oil and gas flow equations under different flow regimes
  • Understand main methods of well testing of Drawdown and Buildup tests
  • Calculate time and saturation of water breakthrough in water flooding
  • Best practices of main groups of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) techniques

Who is this training course for?

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Petroleum Engineers & Production Engineers
  • Processing engineers & other discipline engineers
  • Geologists & Petro physicists
  • Engineers who are new to the profession
  • Other individuals who need to know about current & advanced techniques in EOR

How will this training course be presented?

This training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The course is designed as a blended environment of presentation, class exercises, field application/ analysis and several industry videos showing all processes.
