About This Course

Reservoir engineering is a branch of petroleum engineering that applies scientific principles to the fluid flow through porous medium during the development and production of oil and gas reservoirs so as to obtain a high economic recovery. The study of reservoir engineering is of the utmost importance, since we cannot go to design the construction of an oil well without first having gathered all the geological information such as electrical registers, pressure registers, among others. Another of the importance that it has, is that even once we have several wells producing, with the capacity and petrophysical information that we have, we can predict the future production for the deposit in production, we can even predict the production of proved reserves of deposits that do not are in production.

Many of that information does not have the Petroleum Engineer, so it is necessary to work hand in hand with the geophysicists, to provide electrical profiles, temperature and calibration records, and even records of drilling muds and weather. drilling. All this society makes the production forecasts of the deposit can be optimized, since the records can be compared and corroborated before giving a final prediction.

Learning objective:

The purpose of reservoir engineering is to provide the facts, information and knowledge necessary to control operations to obtain the maximum possible recovery from a reservoir at the least possible cost and also predict field performance and ultimate recovery for various field development scenarios to evaluate the effects on recovery of different operational conditions and compare economics of different recovery methods.
