Course description

Gas Reservoir Management - GRM

Natural gas production has become a major part of every petroleum company's asset base and continues to grow in importance throughout the world. This course will help participants understand the engineering drivers on gas reservoir management and how a gas reservoir's value can be maximized through sound engineering practices. A full spectrum of gas reservoir engineering techniques is addressed and their application to a large variety of gas resource management options is discussed. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.

For the virtual session, course hours will be 0800-1200 CST (GMT - 6:00) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the first week; and Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday for the second week.

This course covers conventional reservoirs.

"Teacher was very good. Has a lot of practical experience and interesting stories." - Reservoir Engineer, Germany

"Liked the presentation and the flow of the examples - hands on exercises." - Reservoir Engineer, United Kingdom

Training content

  • Gas reservoir fluid properties: gas condensate sampling and understanding laboratory reports
  • Gas reservoir fluid flow and well testing: deliverability testing and non-darcy flow, testing for hydraulically fractured wells, horizontal wells, and gas condensate reservoirs
  • Determination of original gas-in-place: material balance techniques for various drive mechanisms and reservoir types, alternate plotting techniques, production decline type curves
  • Gas flow in wellbores and pipelines: the gas production system, pressure drop in wellbores and flowlines, restrictions to gas production
  • Prediction of future performance and ultimate recovery: decline curves, coupled material balance and deliverability techniques, reservoir simulation, gas well spacing and infill drilling
  • Special topics
  • Reservoir management of water-drive gas reservoirs, predicting gas condensate reservoir performance, coalbed methane reservoirs
