This course deals with various algorithms, concepts and the possible uses of reservoir simulators in creating dynamic reservoir models. These are used to investigate reservoir behaviour, optimise reservoir performance, design complex wells, estimate uncertainties and form the basis for risk assessment. New developments combined with new simulation techniques so as to eliminate most of the drawbacks of conventional simulation methods and make predictions more reliable are also dealt with.
In possession of basic skills in reservoir engineering and reservoir simulation
Experienced to some extent in the use of commercial reservoir simulators
How we build your confidence
You will be encouraged to engage in discussions on your experience with simulation studies. Best practices and simulation artefacts are explained with examples useful for project work. Exchange among participants during the course is stimulated to optimize the learning event.
"The instructor has tackled successfully all concerns, combining theory with practice." - Reservoir Engineer at Groupement Berkine "The experience in Reservoir Simulation and software development offers a different (better) perspective on the subject." - Geophysical Engineer at NIS Petrol "Professional professor, course contents were excellent." - Head Reservoir Engineering at Groupement Berkine "The structure was very comprehensive and the material very clear. The quality of the instructor is very important and in this case he was excellent." - Reservoir Engineer at ADCO "After this course I am going to use the simulator with more caution, but definitely with more confidence as well!" - Reservoir Engineer at Qatar Petroleum "The instructor has a very good overview of all subjects and is good at explaining the topics for all levels " - Reservoir Engineer at AGR Petroleum Services "Objective criticism of the commercial simulators - makes us more aware of the limits" - Reservoir Engineer at Wintershall
