The intent of Basic Reservoir Engineering is development of a more complete "understanding" of the characteristics of oil and gas reservoirs, from fluid and rock characteristics through reservoir definition, delineation, classification, development plan, and production. Data collection, integration and application directed toward maximizing recovery are stressed. Basic reservoir engineering equations are introduced with emphasis directed to parameter significance and an understanding of the results. 3-D and 4-D seismic concepts are introduced. For nearly 30 years this has been one of our most popular and successful courses. As part of the basic Reservoir Engineering course, there would be class exercises designed to be solved by hand with a calculator. For those that prefer to use spreadsheets to do the calculations, participants are welcome to bring their own laptop computer.
