Basic Reservoir Management (RES57)


    This course covers fundamental reservoir engineering concepts, demonstrates industry-standard tools and offers practical insights for good reservoir management.

    Course Level: Foundation
    Instructor: Herve Gross

    Designed for you, if you are...

    • A reservoir engineer looking for a deeper understanding of reservoir management and exposure to various reservoir engineering tools
    • A production or drilling engineer looking to broaden your understanding of reservoir engineering
    • A geomodeller looking for insights into the entire reservoir management workflow
    • An experienced reservoir engineer wanting to refresh on the fundamentals of a wide spectrum of reservoir development scenarios

    How we build your confidence

    • The course starts with basic reservoir management concepts and progressively introduces reservoir engineering advancements
    • Every technical point is illustrated through simple examples followed by exercises
    • The presented methods are industry-standard, not field or software specific. They offer a common ground for collaborations across companies
    • Good reservoir management requires cross-disciplinary collaboration, and an overview of the adjacent disciplines to reservoir engineering is presented (geomodelling, economics)

    The benefits from attending

    By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:

    • The essential reservoir engineering toolbox: decline curves, empirical and analytical methods, numerical simulation and when to use them
    • The data necessary for various situations and how to understand them
    • The type of decisions at stake in reservoir management and how to use tools for optimal decision making
    • Long-term reservoir field development plans, from green field development to tertiary recovery
    • Uncertainties in reservoir engineering data and decisions


    • Reservoir management basics
      - What are the important decisions for a field at various levels of development (green fields, brown fields, mature fields)
    • Reservoir engineering data
      - What is available to us?
      - How to deal with incomplete and imperfect data sets
    • Understanding the entire process
      - Overview of geomodelling
      - How geostatistics are used
      - How flow simulation can be used
      - How economics are incorporated
    • Uncertainty and optimisation
      - What tools are available
      - How to use them appropriately
