A 2-Day Special Course
Presented by Dr. Apostolos Kantzas & Dr. Jonathan Bryan
REGISTER BY: Stay tuned for new course dates!
Proper development of recovery strategies from oil & gas reservoirs requires a good understanding of the rock and fluid properties of which the reservoirs are made. This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed understanding of porous media fundamentals – specifically how oil or gas is trapped or mobilized in porous media. In addition, participants are given significant exposure to the field of core analysis, and are given the tools to understand the value and the challenges associated with taking measurements from core. The overall objective of this course is to provide participants with the means to understand how a complete petrophysical package (logs, routine core analysis and special core analysis) can be used to increase the value of their properties.
This course will be taught in the form of lectures with example problems dispersed throughout, which are designed to help course participants to internalize and understand the principles being taught. As part of the training and discussion, specific case studies will be provided that illustrate some of the challenges and pitfalls that can occur when characterizing hydrocarbon reservoirs. Participants are encouraged to bring laptop computers with Excel, which will be needed for some of the problems.
