KE5004: RESERVOIR ENGINEERING AND WELL TESTING: ANALYSIS AND DESIGN (2018-2019)

Last modified: 22 May 2019 17:07


Course Overview

The course provides students with an understanding of the principles of reservoir engineering and well test analysis and design. Fluid flow through hydrocarbon reservoirs and the interaction between the fluids and the reservoir is examined. This course also provides understanding of the fundamentals of pressure transient analysis, pressure build-up and draw-down and interference testing associated with reservoir characterisation. Laboratory experiments and use of industry standard software are used to enhance student learning.
