This course trains petroleum engineering professionals to understand the workflow concepts now prevailing in the oil industry and, therefore, prepares them fully for work in multidisciplinary teams; it is designed for those with industrial experience, as well as for recent graduates.
Modules include: Fundamental knowledge of reservoirs, fluids, production mechanisms and basic equations of flow through porous media; reservoir characterisation process and integration of knowledge from various types of data into a reservoir model; well engineering and well performance prediction (drilling, completion, nodal analysis, stimulation); simulation of the behaviour of the reservoir model and the prediction of reservoir performance; surface facilities and field development; group and individual research projects.
