IPG 518 - Hydrocarbon Reservoir Analysis

★ 3 (fi 6)(EITHER, 3-0-0)

Faculty of Science

An analysis of the fundamental geological factors that determine the economic success of producing hydrocarbons from a reservoir: porosity, permeability, compartmentalization by depositional environment and tectonics, and reservoir conditions requiring special drilling and completion techniques. The methods appropriate to appraise a reservoir are reviewed, with an emphasis on placing the factors in the framework of risk analysis. [Faculty of Science]
