Integrated Reservoir Management of Complex and Unconventional Petroleum Formations

Fees: 4000 $ CAD

About the Course

Crude oil is the most important driving force in the world economy today. Even though, crude oil is abundantly available in nature, most of the reserve resides in complex formations. The proven reserve increases drastically if one accesses more complex reservoirs. The complexity arises from reservoir rock as well as fluid properties. It is known that only 20 to 50% of the original oil in place can be produced using primary and secondary recovery schemes. Enhanced oil recovery can increase this recovery factor significantly. However, such improvement can only come after proper reservoir characterization that can increase the original estimate of reserve and form a sound basis for reservoir development. This course is aimed at developing a fully integrated management scheme that is specially applicable to complex reservoirs.
