PETE 4204 - Formation Evaluation and Reservoir Engineering


4 (3-2)

(formerly 4203)

Prerequisite(s): GEOS 1134 , GEOS 3134 , and GEOS 3434 ; or GEOS 1134  and PETE 2103 ; or consent of instructor.

Using the reservoir lifecycle as a unifying theme, this course focuses on practical aspects of formation evaluation, reservoir characterization, geological modeling, and dynamic forecasting for oil and gas reservoirs.  Major topics are (1) interpretation and integration of reservoir data obtained from well logs, cores, reservoir fluids, and seismic data and (2) building and using geological reservoir models to assess hydrocarbon in place volumes within a probabilistic framework.  Additional topics include reservoir engineering concepts and forecasting tools, reserves calculation, the use decision analysis for value of information (VOI) and economic decisions, reservoir development planning, and reservoir monitoring techniques.  (Same as GEOS 4134 .)
