Jose Villa is a Senior Staff Reservoir Engineer with Anadarko Petroleum Corporation since 2015. He focuses on reservoir engineer as well as reservoir modeling and simulation and has mainly worked off-shore conventional assets. He has actively participated in the development and deployment of reservoir simulation technologies during his professional career. He previously worked for Shell International E&P (Houston, TX, 8 years) and PDVSA Intevep (Venezuela, 10 years), and conducted a number of studies in onshore and offshore fields involving analytical and numerical simulation, history matching, well/field optimization, and integrated asset modeling. In addition to that, he prepared and taught classes on reservoir simulation technology and assisted history matching (AHM) to his colleagues at Shell in different locations. He holds two degrees in PE, a BS from Central University of Venezuela, and a MS from Stanford University. Jose Villa also actively volunteers for the SPE Gulf Coast Section (Reservoir Study Group) and has chaired several SPE workshops in history matching and dynamic reservoir response.

Full Description

Details/Agenda

This course provides participants with an introduction to theoretical and practical concepts in reservoir simulation technology. Course participants will learn about the fundamentals of reservoir simulation, its main components, and how they are used in the development of a simulation study. The course is divided into four parts:

1. Overview of reservoir modeling

2. Reservoir simulation equations

3. Reservoir simulation strategies

4. Simulation model QA/QC and model interrogation

Closing remarks will include discussion of the value of reservoir simulation, tools and workflows, and future trends.
