This programme provides graduate engineers, geologists and other scientists with specialist knowledge and understanding of the geology, performance and management of hydrocarbon reservoirs.
The aims of this programme are to develop core competencies and capabilities within the RE discipline, to be able to integrate your work with other disciplines and functions and to understand the role of the reservoir engineer within the overall commercial and economic structure of the international oil and gas industry.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Display observation and synthesis skills, as well as reinforcing and consolidating material and ideas
- Understand and be able to use skills to collate and analyse information provided by the industrial sponsor or other source
- Describe and interpret a dataset provided by an industrial sponsor, and use this to prepare a report, containing original figures prepared by you, in a style appropriate for industry, but without sacrificing academic rigour and excellence
- Give a ten-minute presentation on an aspect of the project before an invited audience, including externals, to fully develop your audio-visual communication skills.
- Fundamentals of Petroleum Geoscience
- Petrophysics, Core Analysis and Formation Evaluation
- Reservoir Engineering
- Introduction to Energy Economics
- Reservoir Sedimentology and Structure
- Reservoir Simulation
- Group Project and Research Skills
The Project will require integration of different elements and assumes a general knowledge of theoretical aspects of reservoir engineering.
The project subject can be from any aspect of reservoir engineering. It is assumed, but not essential, that you may work on your project in the offices of the company which offered the topic and which is providing data.
