Executives with high potential, senior management, project and program managers, future project managers, engineers and technicians who wish to acquire new knowledge in this discipline.
The overall aims of this module are: Estimate the volume of such reservoirs; Understand the rock and fluid properties of a hydrocarbon reservoir; Describe the nature of the fluid flow and pressure distribution in a reservoir; Understand the effects of production/injection on recovery of reserves;
The main chapters in this module are:
1- Introduction to reservoir operations
2- Reservoir fluid compositions
4- Compositional models
5- Phase behaviour of Hydrocarbons – Pure substances
6- Phase behaviour of Hydrocarbons – Two component systems
7- Phase behaviour of Hydrocarbons – Multicomponent systems
8- Fluid flow in porous media
9- Drive mechanisms
When completed this module the students should be able to:
Understand the compositional models
Understand the phase behaviour of hydrocarbons from pure components to multicomponent systems
Understand the fluid flow in porous media
Identify and understand the different drive mechanisms
The course is composed of a theoretical component, reinforced by a component of practice using calculation and analysis exercises to consolidate theoretical concepts learned.
