Course Description
This 3-day course offers both the fundamentals of oil and gas reservoir engineering and the practical applications to conventional and unconventional (fractured, tight gas) reservoir problems. Estimation of oil and gas reserves, volumetric and material balance methods, reservoir/well recovery and performance analysis/prediction are presented. Well testing methods, behavior of reservoir under primary, secondary and tertiary recovery methods, and different drive mechanisms, are discussed. Field development strategies and planning, including horizontal well and multi-stage fracturing are presented. Displacement of oil by gas and water, principles of reservoir simulation and new technical developments are introduced.

A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in this course.

Davood Khairkhah, Ph.D., P.Eng.
Graduated with M.S and Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from The University of Southern California, Dr. Khairkhah has over 30 years of experience working and teaching in Canada and internationally, in the oil & gas industry and universities, including the University of Calgary and the University of Southern California. He has presented courses in the areas of sensors and smart wells/reservoirs, production engineering, reservoir engineering, reservoir modeling, underground gas storage, fractured reservoirs, well testing, EOR methods, water flooding, and natural gas transmission and processing. His courses have been attended by technical and non-technical participants, ranging from young professionals to senior management.

Industrial projects include field development planning, reservoir characterization, integrated reservoir study, reservoir simulation, water and gas injection in oil reservoirs, horizontal well, multi-stage hydraulic fracturing, reserve analysis, well test design and analysis for conventional and unconventional reservoirs, gas storage development and performance analysis, PVT and core analysis, and gas production from gas hydrate reservoirs.
