Advanced Reservoir Stimulation


Reservoir engineers who are investigating reservoir behaviour, optimizing reservoir performance and providing the basis for risk management.


The participant will be trained in the methods and possible uses of reservoir simulators and will use simulation software for practical exercises throughout this course. Attendees should have a basic knowledge of reservoir simulation, upscaling and some experience in use of commercial reservoir simulators.
