SPE Online Education
Reservoir Engineering Courses
Pressure/Production Data AnalysisContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: review and acquire well test information, validate pressure test information, prepare well test data for analysis, diagnose and interpret the pressure test, design and interpret production records, and analyze production behavior.
Exploration ProcessContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon complication of this module, the learner will be able to learn the progressively more expansive data collection and analysis steps that are applied to an exploration opportunity from the negotiation of a host country agreement to the request for funds to move to Field Development Planning, learn how the exploration process involves making decisions to acquire data under conditions of uncertainty (value of information), learn how exploration and appraisal wells are located to delineate a prospect, learn how resources are estimated using the SPE system under conditions of uncertainty, generate prospect economics based on estimated reserves and project economic indicator, and learn how to assess geological risk.
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.
