Course Information:


This 3-day course is designed for reservoir, exploitation, or evaluation engineers involved in, or contemplating, the use of reservoir simulation technology. Geologists and geophysicists involved in supporting simulation will also find the course helpful. The course addresses the appropriate use of simulation in the reservoir development cycle, describes how studies are carried out, provides screening techniques for input data, outlines techniques that are unique to simulation, indicates common problems that can occur, and provides a concrete step by step approach to evaluate the reliability of study results. Linking geology and reservoir calculations will be emphasized (i.e. Reservoir Characterization). The course consists of formal presentation, case histories, and exercises on the simulator to illustrate critical points. The latter utilizes pre-prepared data sets which do not require previous experience with simulation. The course text (Practical Reservoir Simulation, PennWell, 2003) was authored by the course instructor, Mike Carlson. Participants are required to provide their own laptop for the course, but the required software will be provided.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Instructor(s): Mike Carlson

Mike Carlson earned a Bachelor of Applied Sciences Degree in Geological Engineering (1979) from the University of Toronto, and has over 25 years of varied industry experience. Mike has published over 15 technical papers on successful case studies, compositional simulation of condensate systems, modelling hydraulic fractures, naturally fractured reservoirs and material balance analysis. His experience includes work with both major operating companies, independents, and international consulting companies in a variety of positions in production operations, well completions, exploitation and corporate reserves. Mike has lectured on reservoir engineering and numerical simulation in a number of countries, including Algeria, Cuba, India, Peru, Mexico and Canada, and has also provided expert testimony in matters relating to his area of expertise.
