Fundamentals of Petroleum Geoscience (GL5534)
The course covers aspects of geology, geophysics and prospect evaluation to illustrate how geologists deal with uncertainty and risk during the exploration process. It will look at the place of the geoscientist during the productive life of an oilfield. Another key aspect of this course will be the issue of communication between geoscientists and engineers. By the end of this course students should understand how geologists explore for oil and gas, and the main tools at their disposal; the role of the geophysicist; how to make prospect maps; petroleum volumetrics; subsurface fluid flow; and the creation of static reservoir models.
Petrophysics, Core Analysis an Formation Evaluation (GL5705)
This course looks at the tools available to analyse the lithology and fluid content of a reservoir and how petrophysicists work with other discipline to estimate e hydrocarbon volumes in the subsurface. The course identifies the multiple data sources required for reservoir evaluation, emphasising integration of all available data, potential sources of error and uncertainty within the data. It shows how to relate wireline data to core; gives a solid grounding in the acquisition and evaluation of routine (RCA) and special (SCAL) core analysis datasets; and teaches how to apply these principles to a fully computerised formation evaluation workflow
Reservoir Engineering (EG551V)
The course provides an understanding of the flow of hydrocarbon fluids through reservoir rocks and the interplay between the fluid and rock properties and reservoir performance.
Well and Production Engineering (EG551W)
This course provides students with an understanding of the engineering science and principles that underpin the drilling of oil and gas well, production technologies, design methodologies, as well as associated safety and environmental considerations.
Individual Project In Petroleum Engineering (EG5911)
This course offers the student the opportunity to put acquired technical knowledge and skills into practical application through independent and individual project work.
Reservoir Simulation B (EG551O)
The course provides an understanding of theoretical formulation, data sources and integration into simulator, and quantification of uncertainties necessary for transforming real reservoir engineering problems into manageable numerical simulation models.
Well Test: Analysis and Design (EG551Q)
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.
Enhanced Oil Recovery B (EG55Q1)
With growing demand on energy, there is increasing need to maximise the production of oil and gas, especially from depleting reservoirs. This course examines the methods and processes of enhanced recovery of oil and gas and provides students with the knowledge and understanding required to develop, acquire and safely integrate enhanced oil recovery technologies into field development plan and field operations.
Field Development and Petroleum Economics B (EG551R)
This course provides a detailed overview of oil and gas field development from discovery to abandonment with particular focus on the decisions made prior to first production. The roles of uncertainties, economics considerations, safety and environmental impact on the design choices are explored.
