Designed to expose geoscientists to the language and methodologies commonly employed by reservoir engineers to estimate oil and gas reserves, this course will include a brief review of reservoir rock properties, introduction to fluid properties, reservoir drive mechanisms, and commonly used techniques for estimating reserves including analogy, volumetric analysis, material balance, decline curve analysis, and computer simulation. Presented by Richard Green, an independent consultant with over 35 years of experience in the petroleum industry, will share his knowledge and expertise to provide greater understandings of the factors that influence the production of oil and gas from reservoirs. The course will be held June 19-20 in Aurora, Colorado at the Summit Conference Center. The course will be one of 13 others all created with your interests and training needs in mind.

Event: Summer Education Conference
Presentation: Reservoir Engineering for Petroleum Geologists
Presenter(s): Richard Green – Independent Consultant
Date: June 19-20, 2014 (Thursday & Friday)
Location: The Summit Conference Center, Aurora, Colorado
Who Should Attend
The course is designed for personnel who wish to acquire a broad understanding of the factors that influence the production of oil and gas from reservoirs. The course presents information that can be applied to geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, land management specialists, and managers with no previous training in reservoir engineering. It can also serve as an introductory course for engineers who have not had previous training in reservoir engineering.
Upon completion of this course, participants will:
- Know the language and terminology of reservoir engineering allowing better interdisciplinary communication.
- Have the skills to integrate production data with geologic data and use the combination to enhance interpretation and potentially discover untapped reserves.
- Understand the rock properties that control production performance and use that knowledge to better explore and develop reservoirs and fields.
- Understand the various reservoir drive mechanisms, the expected recovery ranges from those mechanisms, and the secondary and tertiary methods employed to enhance recoveries from reservoirs.
The basic purpose of every individual in a producing company is the same: to find and produce oil and gas in an efficient manner to the economic benefit of the company. A reservoir engineer cannot predict the production performance of an oil reservoir with any degree of certainty without a knowledge of the physical characteristics – the geology – of that reservoir.
Neither can the geologist describe the physical characteristics of a reservoir and be sure of his work without considering the producing characteristics as evidenced by production and pressure data. This course is an attempt to bridge that particular chasm, being an introductory description of the field and techniques of petroleum reservoir engineering.
The four concurrent sessions allow attendees to mix and match according to their interests and training needs. Courses for the conference may be purchased individually. These individual prices are reflected in the pricing on the course descriptions.
Course notes will be provided in digital format on CD only, so laptops with CD drives are required for all courses. If you do not have access to a laptop computer with a CD drive, please contact the AAPG Education Dept. for an alternate method to download the digital course notes.
