To accurately estimate reserves and forecast production, it is critical that your technical teams understand their geological and engineering data, and the uncertainty in that data. Economic decisions are made based on these forecasts. If a team fails to understand the reservoir properly, they provide inaccurate reserve estimates and poor development strategies to decision-makers.

Our reservoir development training courses help individuals and technical teams better understand the reservoir and manage their asset’s lifecycle.

D342_1 geographic model
Compartmentalization and connectivity in sandstone reservoirs

Distance Learning
Sept. 20 - Oct. 1, 2021
Instructor: John Snedden

The reservoir connectivity workflow taught in this course focuses on identification of new or underdepleted compartments, deeper oil/water contacts, oil columns in gas-dominated closures, and cross-fault flow or channel-to-channel reservoir flow, increasing overall recovery.
