Course Description
The course presents the  fundamentals of reservoir engineering and examines the  tasks of the  reservoir engineer, with an emphasis on  interaction with other disciplines.   Principle topics  are  description of the components of the  static  reservoir model,  development of the  dynamic reservoir model  and  reservoir management through the  life of a field.

This four-day course This course is designed  for  professionals who work with, or  rely on, analyses  provided  by reservoir engineers, or  who  otherwise need  to understand and communicate with them  on a technical  or  commercial basis. Participants should have some  familiarity with the  concepts  of reservoir engineering and field development, but require a greater  understanding of the  data  used and the  techniques employed  by the  reservoir engineer in day-to-day work. It is suitable  for exploration, development and  production geoscientists as well as petrophysicists, facility and operations engineers, drilling and  production engineers. pipeline engineers, and  business
analysts. Participants are requested to bring a scientific calculator to class. 

Participants will learn to:
•	Communicate and work effectively with a reservoir engineer.
•	Determine the key parameters of reservoir fluids and how the fluids are sampled, measured and described.
•	Determine fluid distribution in a reservoir, including contacts and pressure relationships.
•	Determine reserve and resource volumes and describe tools such as decline curve analysis and material 
        balance that can influence the estimates.
•	Perform simple interpretations of well test data and demonstrate what can be learned from the data.
•	Analyze reservoir drive mechanisms.
•	Determine the benefits and limitations of reservoir simulation in a variety of settings.
•	Determine appropriate reservoir surveillance practices to implement during the life of a field.
•	Question which enhanced oil recovery techniques might be suitable for a particular field.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

This is a great learning course within the given time. I recommend this course for those non-reservoir engineers who are involved in drilling wells and have not yet taken this course.

A great course for understanding the fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering. As a geologist this is very useful in helping me to understand the limitations of reservoir engineering and how I can assist reservoir engineers to better understand the subsurface.

I not a Reservoir Engineer but I enjoyed a lot this class. It has formulas and concepts that probably I will never used, but understand lots of data related concepts that I hear a lot and now makes way more sense to me.

Excelent course and good delivery

Great second-level course. Assumes basic knowledge. Some topics are really valuable; some unimportant. Over-all imparts vital information.

The class materials were very good for this course. Class exercises really helped to apply right away what we learnt. The teacher was excellent at delivering the material.
