Reservoir Engineering for Non-Reservoir Engineers

Reservoir EngineeringReservoir Engineering Training Course for Non-Reservoir Engineers - A 5-Day Introduction to the Oil & Gas Sector

** VIENNA SESSION IS CONFIRMED! (5-9 August 2019 in Vienna, Austria).
Seats still available!**

This course introduces basic reservoir engineering concepts and methods to enable cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas and experience. It provides the required input to help you understand questions crucial to the reservoir engineer: How much oil & gas is there (accumulation)? How much can be recovered (reserves)? How fast can it be recovered (rate)?

Participants will gain confidence through the following training methodologies:

  • Theoretical concepts illustrated during individual sessions are accompanied by working on practical problems to ensure a thorough understanding of the principles and procedures
  • Hands-on experience by solving classical reservoir engineering tasks on PC

Suitability - Who should attend?

This training course in Reservoir Engineering is aimed at geoscientists and engineers with little or no reservoir engineering background.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:

  • Single- and multi-phase fluid flow through porous media
  • Fluid phase properties during hydrocarbon recovery
  • Reservoir engineering concepts and terminology
  • How recovery factors and reserves are being estimated and predicted
  • Typical assumptions and simplifications required to predict reservoir performance

Training Course Content

This Reservoir Engineering introductory course is designed to cover the following key areas:

  • Introduction to the physics of petroleum reservoirs
  • Fluid properties in reservoir engineering - fluid types, phase behaviour, correlations, equations of state
  • Fundamental rock properties - porosity, wettability, capillary pressure, permeability, relative permeability and other concepts
  • Evaluation and recovery of oil and gas reserves - classification of reserves, recovery factors, volumetrics of oil and gas reservoirs
  • Material balance calculations
  • Oil-water displacement - mobility ratio, Buckley-Leverett, displacement efficiency
  • Well Performance
  • Introduction to Transient Well Test Analysis
  • Decline curve analysis


The course fee includes tuition, course material, refreshments and lunch per session day and a 100 EURO non-refundable registration fee. Course fees do NOT include accommodation or living costs. Applicable taxes will be added.

This course utilises computers. Additional computer fee: EUR 250 +VAT.

The course is held at a top quality hotel with excellent meeting facilities.

Reviews by course attendees

Geologist at Wintershall
Dr. Ganzer delivered the course content in a perfect pace. Everything was easy to understand and will be helpful in my job.
The instructor's way to present is outstandingly good. His ability to explain things and answer questions is simply excellent. The organisation of topics is very good and the content is excellently fitting to the title and subject of the course.
