Reservoir Management for Unconventional Reservoirs - RMUR

Training overview
Professional Course
5 days

Course description

This course in unconventional reservoir management is aimed at all petro-technical professionals who have little experience with these resource types but who wish to quickly learn some key elements and issues associated with the exploitation of unconventional reservoirs (tight gas, tight oil, and shales). The course is built around the role of the reservoir engineer and, hence, concerns itself with the integration and use of information to make well rate and recoverable volumes estimates, making decisions on desirable data collection, and planning answers to common questions such as choice of initial development spacing and the value of subsequent infill drilling. Attendees should leave this course with an improved understanding of unconventional reservoir exploitation. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.

Who should attend?

All petro-technical professionals who have little experience with unconventional reservoirs but who need or desire to start developing some understanding of important basic concepts and methods associated with these resource types. The course is focused on reservoir management issues for tight gas, tight oil and shale reservoirs. CBM reservoirs are not addressed.

Oil and Gas Professional
Liked the instructor's deep knowledge of the math and physics.
Reservoir Engineer
I loved the derivations and background information for the reservoir programs we use. Instructor was very knowledgeable of tight gas and shale gas and the development of these assets in basins all around the world.
Petroleum Engineer
Liked the example problems.
