Course description

Reservoir Management for Unconventional Reservoirs - In-house training by PetroSkills

This course can be conducted on site at your location exclusively for your staff. This course in unconventional reservoir management is aimed at all petro-technical professionals who have little experience with these resource types but who wish to quickly learn some key elements and issues associated with the exploitation of unconventional reservoirs (tight gas, tight oil and shales). The course is built around the role of the reservoir engineer and, hence, concerns itself with the integration and use of information to make well rate and recoverable volumes estimates, making decisions on desirable data collection and planning answers to common questions such as choice of initial development spacing and the value of subsequent infill drilling. Attendees should leave this course with an improved understanding of unconventional reservoir exploitation. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

This in-house training course has the following outcomes:
  • Plan solutions to common reservoir management problems for unconventional reservoirs
  • Apply approaches to estimate rate and recoverable volumes for develop wells prior to development in an unconventional reservoir
  • Use classical and current non-simulation methods for estimating wells rates and recoverable volumes using production data from unconventional reservoirs
  • Better understand the limitations of these rate and recoverable volume prediction methods
  • Address the development of a life-of-field surveillance plan for an unconventional reservoir
  • Better understand the use, design and analysis of pressure transient tests appropriate for the characterization of unconventional well/reservoir systems (DFITs & PBUs)
