This course will address all the principles of reservoir management. The reservoir management process with integrated concept, role of reservoir simulation in reservoir management and importance of reservoir surveillance and monitoring for the whole reservoir management process will be discussed. The significance of the production optimization process in addition to the economics evaluation will be incorporated. The course covers all aspects related to hydrocarbon recovery methods starting from the primary recovery and up to enhanced oil recovery. The course will focus on different aspects of reservoir management applications for new reservoirs, matured reservoirs, reservoir with small gas caps, and reservoir with huge gas caps, thin oil rims, reservoirs with new infill opportunities and fractured reservoirs.
Understand the principles of reservoir management concept and process.
