Discipline

Reservoir Engineering and Petrophysics

Course Duration

5 days

Delivery Method

In-house

Knowledge of reservoir fluid properties is key to understand wide ranging topics in petroleum engineering such as reserves estimates, reservoir simulation, well test analysis and well performance modeling. Pressure-Volume- Temperature (PVT) analysis is used to classify reservoir fluid types and quantify their properties. This course will focus on reservoir fluid classification and PVT analysis.
