Course description

This course gives the non-reservoir engineer a better understanding of reservoir engineering practices and limitations. The course is designed to provide a good understanding of reservoir engineering processes, the required data, and the limitations on the engineers' analysis and interpretations. The course also provides persons who are already well trained in the other upstream petroleum industry technical disciplines with an understanding of the current state-of-the-art practice of reservoir engineering. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Engineers and geoscientists now working in an asset environment where they need to better understand the practices and limitations of the methods and procedures employed by the reservoir engineers with whom they work. Participants should have three or more years of technical experience in the upstream petroleum industry.

Well Fluids Lab Supervisor
All subjects interesting and exciting. Overall is fun. Keep up the excellent teaching.
Associate Risk Analyst
Overall, enjoyed it and the discussion.
Petroleum Engineer
What I like is that Stan answered all of our questions with his experience and that we had nice discussions. Since other participants have various backgrounds (EOR, Shale, Offshore, Africa), it was very interesting.
