Petroleum Engineering for Non-Engineers
Calgary, Canada

This four-day course is designed to provide non-engineering petroleum industry technical professionals with a thorough overview of most key aspects of petroleum engineering technology and its applications. The course addresses engineering issues ranging from initial involvement with explorationists to production optimization challenges. The sessions will focus on relevant and practical issues, and will include a combination of classroom exercises and basic engineering problems. For those wishing to supplement this course with knowledge of surface facilities issues, we recommend that this course be supplemented with our existing “Introduction to Natural Gas Gathering and Processing” course. A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Course Outline

Applied Hydrodynamics In Exploration And Production
Calgary, Canada

This 2-day course presents practical and proven techniques for using hydrogeological principles, concepts and industry methods in exploring for subsurface oil and gas accumulations, evaluating the hydrocarbon resource potential of basins, and assessing the effects of moving formation water on oil pool size, shape, location, pressure and producability. The course draws from over twenty-five years of industry experience in Canada, the Atlantic, the North Sea, the western U.S., Ecuador, East and North Africa, and includes a blend of petroleum geology, subsurface hydrogeology, mapping, and graph construction using routinely available industry Well, Log, DST and RFT data. The textbbook for the course, "Applied Hydrodynamics in Petroleum Exploration”, was authored by the instructor.

Fluids, Subsurface Pressures and Gradients
Formation Pressure Measurements, DST and RFT
Fluid Environments, Flow and No-Flow
Potential Energy in Fluids and Electrical Analogs
Rock Grain Systems, Pore Spaces, and Capillarity
Mechanics of Abnormal Pressures
Uses for Pressure-Depth Relationships
Potentiometric Map Construction and Utilization, and Subsurface Waterflow
Pressure Correlations of Geologic Units and Reservoirs
Recognizing Tilted Oil-Water Contacts from Logs
Displaced Oil and Gas Pools
Construction of Entrapment Potential Cross Sections
U,V,Z Map Constructions
Effects of Facies, Structure, and Water Movement on Entrapment and Migration
