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.

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.

This course builds on the NExT Fundamentals of Petroleum Geomechanics course and starts to investigate geomechanics beyond simple elastic, isotropic behaviour. After a brief review of fundamental concepts, earth stresses and the Mechanical Earth Model, the course looks at the impact of reversible and non-reversible geomechanical behaviour on drilling, stimulation, sand production and injection looking specifically at thermal, depletion and compaction effects. The course then investigates anisotropy, its nature and effect on geomechanics, and its significance and influence on well construction and field development. The course also covers salt, introducing the mechanics of salt, short term and long term behaviour, as well as the impact on drilling both sub-salt and pre-salt.

At the end of this course participants will recognize the differences and significance of reversible and non-reversible in petroleum applications of geomechanics both in the wellbore and reservoir. They will under-stand the importance of anisotropic behaviour in rocks, know the methods used to measure anisotropy and the effect on well construction and field development. They will also be know about the short and long term mechanical behaviour of salt, the effect of salt on the local stress state and what needs to be considered when developing fields either created by or accessed through salt.

This course covers the necessary fundamentals of geomechanics for wellbore applications; the origin of stresses in the subsurface and how in situ stresses can be understood from wellbore data; mechanical properties such as rock strength, and the origins of pore pressure and how it is measured and estimated. The course then proceeds to show how these data are applied through the Mechanical Earth Model to critical problems in exploration and field development. There are detailed case studies on wellbore stability sand production and hydraulic fracturing. The course also includes an introduction to reservoir geomechanics, showing the geomechanical influence of pressure changes in the reservoir.

At the end of the course attendees will be able to:

  • Use routinely collected and specialized data to make basic geomechanical calculations for wellbore stability, sand production and hydraulic fracturing
  • Select and design data acquisition for geomechanical studies
  • Interpret image data to identify basic geomechanical behaviour

This course is also available as a 3 day class without classroom exercises
