This course develops an understanding of the technologies and applications of modern petroleum engineering. It addresses engineering issues ranging from initial involvement in exploration to production optimisation challenges. It is considered a primary course prior to specialised training programs.
Course Level: Foundation / Skill Instructor: Gioia Falcone
Designed for you, if you are...
A manager, engineer, geologist, geophysicist, chemist or physicist working in E&P or for a service company with limited background in petroleum engineering
How we build your confidence
With a sequential approach to field exploration, appraisal and development, you will move from the static characterisation of the reservoir to the dynamic characterisation of fluid flow through the entire production system, in order to appreciate the role of petroleum engineering within the larger picture of E&P activities. The course includes class discussions of field problems and short films.
The benefits from attending
By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:
The fundamental concepts involved in exploration and petroleum engineering activities
The wide range of exploration geology, drilling and production techniques used by the petroleum industry
Petroleum geology and reservoir types
Tools for exploration and field appraisal
Reservoir fluid and rock properties
Drilling and completions
Subsurface fluid flow
From hydrocarbons in place to production
Reserves evaluation and determination of recovery factor
