Reservoir Engineering Courses
ReservoirsContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
This topic defines porosity and describes its different types as they relate to reservoir quality. It defines permeability and explains how it is determined in a laboratory setting. The course summarizes the different elements associated with rock texture and describes how those elements affect the porosity and permeability of a reservoir. It explains how capillary pressure affects the overall quality of a reservoir.
Flow Unit DeterminationContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completing this Learning Module assignment, the participant should be able to establish the areal and vertical distribution of zones with similar behavior in agreement with the reservoir model and identify and delineate the rock volumes with sedimentological, petrophysical and reservoir properties that enable hydraulic communication.
Rock Mechanics FundamentalsContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completing this Learning Module assignment, the participant should be able to apply rock mechanics fundamentals to describe well, reservoir and production behavior and define the following rock mechanical properties under various conditions of confining pressure, describe how these properties influence wellbore stability, directional drilling considerations, well completion design and other aspects of reservoir development, and know how they are measured in the laboratory: Brinell hardness, tensile strength, normal/shear stress relationships and failure mechanisms (Mohr circles), Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, compressive strength, and shear strength.
Stability and Rock Deformation ModelsContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completing this assignment, the participant should be able to identify the presence and orientation of fracture systems in the reservoir and generate a stability and rock deformation model.
