Course Information:


This five-day course is designed for technical professionals and will introduce the participants to the fundamental aspects of reservoir engineering. Theoretical concepts coupled with numerous practical case histories are presented to assist reservoir and exploitation engineers in their primary functions - the determination of oil and gas reserves and the maximization of hydrocarbon recovery under primary, secondary, and tertiary schemes. Field development of non-conventional gas reservoirs such as, coalbed methane (CBM) and tight gas reservoirs will also be covered. The applications of horizontal well, planning and some of new technologies will be reviewed. The session will include a number of relevant class problems and examples.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Instructor(s): Saad Ibrahim, P. Eng.

Saad Ibrahim has over 30 years of diversified experience in the Petroleum Industry in Western Canada and internationally, including projects in Libya, Yemen, Kazakstan, Venezuela and Argentina, with special expertise in reservoir engineering with emphasis on field development planning, evaluation of depletion strategies and production optimization of a wide spectrum of oil and gas fields. Other interests include well test planning and analysis using state of the art commercially-available software; the implementation of secondary and tertiary recovery schemes; and technical and economic evaluations of oil and gas properties for acquisition and divestiture ventures. He graduated from the University of Alexandria (Egypt) with B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering in 1973, and obtained a post-graduate diploma from the University of Calgary in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering in 1983. Saad is a member of the APEGGA, SPE and CIM.
