INTRODUCTION

This EuroMaTech training course is designed to identify the sources of the reservoir engineering data. In addition, it will highlight the benefits of integrating the engineering data in the reservoir management of the mature fields. Data acquisition and integration will be presented. Requirements for successful operation of the matured reservoir throughout its entire life will be emphasized.

The reservoir life cycle and the sequences of the production recovery mechanisms will be discussed. The course will clarify how the integrated and the sound reservoir management is the key to realize an effective development plan and a successful operation throughout the reservoir’s life. The course will provide the principles to manage the reservoirs and enhance the recovery from the remaining oil & gas-in-place. The successful applications of the reservoir management concepts will lead to achieve high recovery factors.

Reservoir engineering and management is a combination of science and art. Therefore, the course will discuss the application of the scientific principles and concepts to solve issues arising during the development and production of oil and gas reservoirs. The analysis for the reservoir behaviour and the production performance will be covered.  In addition, the course will provide many tools and techniques to help address the challenges of providing a more reliable and sound reservoir engineering and management. The reservoir management economics and improved recovery processes will be presented. Case studies reflecting different fields will be discussed.

This training course will feature:

  • Reservoir management process, components and plan
  • Reservoir engineering data
  • Reserves estimation and classification
  • Reservoir drive mechanisms and producing characteristics
  • Determination of hydrocarbon in place
  • Describing waterflooding
  • Waterflood monitoring and management
  • Oil recovery enhancement techniques
PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

By the end of this training course, participants will learn to:

  • Use appropriate approaches in reservoir engineering and management
  • Be familiar with the appropriate data collection, analysis, validation and integration process
  • Illustrate the points of integration between the different disciplines (geoscience, engineering,..etc.) during the applications of the reservoir management concepts
  • Applications
  • Ensure the appropriate execution of the reservoir management process
  • Use the Interdisciplinary Synergistic approach to efficient reservoir management
  • Include each reservoir management component and the importance of timing and cost/benefit analysis
  • Apply the different methods of reservoir performance analysis and forecast & give emphasis on the integration of production/injection data, pressure data and any subsurface data
  • Acquire an up to date knowledge on the improved recovery processes related to waterflooding, thermal methods, chemical methods and EOR screening guidelines

 

TRAINING METHODOLOGY
