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.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||10 credits (5 ECTS credits)|
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.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: 1 three-hour written examination
paper (90%), continuous assessment (10%).
The continuous assessment will
be based on the simulation of a well test using industry standard software.
Resit: 1 three-hour written examination (90%), and the continuous assessment mark from the 1st attempt (10%)
There are no assessments for this course.
