Reservoir Fluid Displacement Fundamentals
This skill module covers the same topics as the Reservoir Fluid Displacement module; immiscible, linear displacement, as dispersed and segregated flow. It also discusses aquifers, coning, and vertical layering. However, it goes into greater detail on:
- Immiscible, linear displacement as dispersed and segregated flow
- Vertical layering
Upcoming start dates
- Self-paced Online
Who should attend?
Engineers or geoscientists who will occupy the position of reservoir engineer, or any other technically-trained individual who desires a more in-depth foundation in reservoir engineering than is offered in the one-week Basic Reservoir Engineering and Reservoir Engineering for Other Disciplines courses.
You will learn how to
- Calculate the breakthrough time for an oil well using a collection of different methods
- Explain how rock and fluid properties as well as reservoir geometry affect the breakthrough time
- Model the flow of two fluids concurrently through the same rock volume
- Recognize how flow rates and pressure drops vary under two phase flow
- Calculate recovery factors for reservoirs experiencing two phase flow as a function of time
- Use correlations to estimate areal and vertical sweep efficiency
- Calculate water influx into hydrocarbon reservoirs using a variety of aquifer models
- Recognize the strengths and weaknesses of popular aquifer models
