Oil Reservoir Engineering


Course Description

This course provides a general understanding of main Geosciences & Reservoir Engineering concepts and data used in multidisciplinary Oil & Gas fields development projects and the way these data and concepts are integrated.


Learn the basic concepts, tools, and techniques to analyze well performance and manage a petroleum reservoir.


Build a strong foundation in Petroleum Reservoir Engineering with this course for students and practitioners


Material Balance Equation

Darcy’s Law

Rock and Fluid Properties

Enhanced Oil Recovery

Well Testing

History Match

The Industry Standard for Reservoir Engineering


Next, they introduce key principles of fluid flow, water influx, and advanced recovery (including hydraulic fracturing). Throughout, they present field examples demonstrating the use of material balance and history matching to predict reservoir performance. For the first time, this edition relies on Microsoft Excel with VBA to make calculations easier and more intuitive.



Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

describe the main steps of Oil & Gas fields exploration and development workflow,

describe petroleum systems, reservoir rocks and the corresponding fundamental properties as well as the related techniques to get relevant information (core analysis, logs, well testing),

describe reservoir fluids and the corresponding fundamental properties,

describe main reservoir production mechanisms and the related expected performance,

describe the concepts of resources and reserves and the related concepts of risks and uncertainties and economical evaluation.


Content and Overview:

The first two sections are designed to bring beginners up to speed with an introduction to reservoir engineering and a review of rock and fluid properties. More experienced students jump in in section three to learn the material balance equation and learn how to apply it in all four reservoir types. The course is rounded out with a thorough review of Darcy’s law, enhanced oil recovery, well testing and history matching.


Throughout the course, we cover example problems and assign homework problems. We provide a video walking through the solution of those homework problems as well. The course culminates in the history matching problem which incorporates the concepts from each chapter.


Students completing the course will have the knowledge and tools to analyze well performance and manage petroleum reservoirs.


Who this course is for:

Technicians, engineers, managers and Oil & Gas industry staff facing day-to-day Geosciences and Reservoir Engineering concerns.

This course is for students and PR actioners interested in reservoir engineering.

Advanced math and computer skills are NOT required. Knowledge of Algebra and Microsoft Excel will be sufficient.

The first two sections are designed to bring the beginner up to speed while the remaining 10 sections lay the vital foundation for beginners and experienced PR actioners alike.
