This course provides students with an understanding of the fundamentals of well fluids and reservoir testing and the implications for reservoir characterisation and field development. The theory of reservoir pressure testing is introduced, testing methods examined and some of the standard analysis techniques are explored using both “hand calculations” and industry standard software.

The course examines the fundamental principles that govern the behaviour of reservoir fluids and their response to reservoir features. Sampling and testing methods are presented together with techniques of data analysis determination of relevant properties. The theory of reservoir pressure testing is introduced, testing methods examined and some of the standard analysis techniques explored, using both “hand calculations” and industry standard software.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st attempt: One three-hour written examination (80%) and continuous assessment (20%). Detailed breakdown will be provided at the beginning of the course.
The re-sit will comprise of re-doing the failed element/s (exam and/or coursework assessment/s) from the 1st attempt with a maximum CGS mark of D3. The marks for other elements (successfully passed) will be carried over. Resit mark of either RP or RF will be recorded.
There are no assessments for this course.
a) Assessment grade and feedback comments will be provided on the coursework report.
b) Students can receive feedback on their progress with the Course on request at the weekly tutorial/feedback sessions.
