This course will include the presentation of various reserve estimating methodologies, to include the difference between resources and reserves. The classifications and definitions of these reserves and resources, along with a guideline for the application of these definitions will be covered. PRMS, SPE, WPC, AAPG, SEC, and other regulatory authority guidelines will be discussed.
The course will update G&G and reservoir engineers with the newest and most accurate methods for obtaining the value of a reserve. Following the completion of this course, all participants should be able to manage deterministic and probabilistic methods, with the aim of gaining a thorough understanding of various reserve levels and their equivalence in both systems.
This course teaches you the use and limitations of a variety of production logging tools including spinner, temperature, noise, fluid injections and others tools. You will learn what results these tools yield, the interpretation assumptions that are integral to their designs, and how quality is affected by the acquisition process. You will also learn the fundamentals of production log interpretation with hands-on examples and an in-class workshop on interpreting single and two phase flow using production logs. You will learn how production logs can be used for the measurement of 3 phase fluid flow.
This course will present the methods for obtaining values of reservoir fluid properties from laboratory data and correlations. Chemical properties of hydrocarbons, conventional laboratory PVT (Pressure-Volume-Temperature) tests and quality control will also be covered. Participants will learn about phase diagrams, mixing rules, EOS, EOS tuning, and fluid properties while attending this course. Each day participants will be given examples and problems to solve.
This course will help participants gain a better understanding of the relationship between the five reservoir fluids and how to manage problem concerning reservoir fluid properties with increased confidence.
This is an applied course on how to use capillary pressure data to help the user understand what is controlling the fluid distribution, the importance of pore geometry and why water saturation is not an accident.
Case studies and workshops on bi-modal carbonates are used to show the challenges associated with interpretating fluid distributions. To understand many carbonates it is necessary to examine capillary pressure, HPMI, lab NMR, thin-sections and SEM images.
Both clastics and carbonate examples and core-log integration workshops are used show how simple saturation height models can be applied in fields to study many parameters as fluid contacts, hydro-carbon column height and help you determine the dominant hyrdocarbon-water contact.
A large number of workshops are used in this course so the participants can gain a hands-on experience for interpreting capillary pressure data.
This course will focus on the different types of tests and techniques, both analytical and graphical, for data representation and analysis of well tests. Types of techniques covered will include diagnostic plots-derivative for draw down, and buildup tests. Participants will learn about the interpretation of complex data, such as those from well test in naturally fractured reservoirs, hydraulically fractured wells, horizontal wells, along with gas and gas condensate reservoirs. Each day participants will see examples of the types and techniques discussed along with practice problems.
A profitable development of an oil or gas field start with a good understanding of the subsurface as a basis for efficient and successful field management. The use of AVO and inversion techniques helps to create the best possible petrophysics subsurface model. Improved discrimination of reservoir units are made and models are generated using logs and seismic data. These techniques lead to highly accurate or highly probable (static) subsurface models compatible (if correctly up-scaled) to dynamic reservoir models obtained from reservoir engineering measurements and computations.
The correct use of seismic attributes, well data analysis, AVO and seismic inversion is essential to establish subsurface models that can be used for improved field development planning and design.
At the end of the course participants will understand basic concepts in quantitative seismic analysis and interpretation based on AVO, well-to-seismic calibration and inversion techniques. Participants will consolidate their understanding of modern technology with recent field study examples and practical workshop exercises.
Fractured reservoirs such as tight carbonates and basements set complex challenges to appraisal and development teams due to their high degree of heterogeneity and hard-to-predict reservoir quality. A multi-disciplinary approach that draws on sedimentology, diagenesis, structural geology, rock mechanics and reservoir engineering techniques has to be applied.
This course provides geologists and reservoir engineers with the essential knowledge needed in the real-world business context where management of risk and reduction of uncertainties is important. The objective is to present the key technical issues in geology, geomechanics and engineering and illuminate the range of tools and techniques available to tackle them (along with their limitations). A constant theme is to illustrate these issues with case histories from the industry.
The course is intended to be interactive in that delegates are encouraged to participate in discussions so that key points are openly scrutinised.
A constant theme of the course is to apply ‘first principles’ from geological science to the results generated by reservoir characterisation tools, techniques and modelling softwares. With due attention to these principles the technical and commercial risks associated with fractured reservoir hydrocarbon developments can be mitigated.
The course will cover all the aspects of the fundamentals of cased hole formation and production evaluation. The emphasis during the workshop will be on the fundamental “science” and on the efficient use of logs. The course will also introduce the latest cased hole logging techniques and technology development. A strong element of log quality control is also included, and there are multiple exercises.
The objective of this training is to acquaint attendees briefly with the extensive topic of IOR/EOR processes that exist and in growth for the development of conventional and unconventional resources. The training will cover the following aspects:
- Definition of IOR and EOR
- Reservoir life cycle and fundamentals of fluid displacement in reservoir
- Miscible EOR
- Thermal EOR
- Chemical EOR
- Microbial EOR (MEOR)
- Mobility control as a complement to other EOR processes
- Global EOR projects
This course teaches you advanced techniques for production logging and reservoir monitoring. You will learn to design a data acquisition program to evaluate wellbore or reservoir behavior based on field development objectives. You will learn in-depth log interpretation techniques such as interpreting three phase fluid flow in deviated and horizontal wells. You will also learn quick look techniques for log quality control as well as how to plan and integrate multi-source data to complete your evaluation. Using hands-on examples, you will learn to interpret behind casing resistivity, three phase flow in horizontal wells, and evaluating fluid saturations using logging tools
