EP3598: WELL TESTING (2018-2019)

Last modified: 22 May 2019 17:07


Course Overview

This course introduces students to the fundamentals of well fluid and reservoir testing and the implications for reservoir characterisation. 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.

Course Description

The course introduces students to 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.
