This course teaches integrated reservoir characterization, from basic petrophysics through geostatistics. The emphasis is on porosity, permeability, capillary pressure and relative permeability as they relate to flow. The course also covers the statistics of the spatial distribution of these properties and illustrates the benefits of using them.

- Single-phase petrophysical porosity, permeability and non-Darcy effects
- Two-phase flow: capillary pressure, relative permeabilities and trapped phase saturations
- Heterogeneity and non-uniformity
- Effective properties: (pseudo) porosity
- Absolute permeability: capillary pressure, relative permeability, dispersivity and viscous fingering
Level of Learning
Why You Should Attend
This class will quickly bring you up to speed on the characterization of oil and gas reservoirs.
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for engineers with at least a bachelor’s degree in petroleum or chemical engineering. All other engineers, geologists, mathematicians and physicists with at least some experience in reservoir engineering or numerical simulation can benefit from the course.
