Training Advanced Reservoir Simulation

Advanced Reservoir Simulation Training

This course deals with various algorithms, concepts and the possible uses of reservoir simulators in creating dynamic reservoir models. These are used to investigate reservoir behaviour, optimise reservoir performance, design complex wells, estimate uncertainties and form the basis for risk assessment. New developments combined with new simulation techniques so as to eliminate most of the drawbacks of conventional simulation methods and make predictions more reliable are also dealt with.

Designed for you, if you are…
An experienced reservoir engineer
In possession of basic skills in reservoir engineering and reservoir simulation
Experienced to some extent in the use of commercial reservoir simulators
How we build your confidence
You will be encouraged to engage in discussions on your experience with simulation studies. Best practices and simulation artefacts are explained with examples useful for project work. Exchange among participants during the course is stimulated to optimize the learning event.
