This is a highly specialised area of oil and gas engineering in which you learn the discipline and wider areas that feed into it. You are taught by industry respected researchers and academics who have followed the oil and gas industry since the 1970s and its inception in Aberdeen city. Aberdeen is at the heart of the oil and gas industry in Europe and is known worldwide as a major energy hub.

Reservoir Engineering is a highly specialised but essential part of upstream oil and gas extraction process. It requires detailed knowledge of geology, performance and management of reserves. Often these reserves are deep in oceans or land and in very difficult and hard to reach locations with complex geology  so it is essential to have a high degree of skills and knowledge to understand how best these reserves can be tapped into in critically sensitive environments.

There is a recognised, global shortage of practitioners in the area of reservoir engineering which is addressed by the programme. You study a wide spectrum of reservoir phenomena, and to evaluate them in the context of petroleum engineering and cognate areas of petroleum Geoscience, within the economic context of the hydrocarbon industry. You have employment options worldwide in the oil and gas industry with plenty of options to travel to growth markets and untapped areas of reserves within multinationals and consultancies.

The MSc in Reservoir Evaluation and Management (REM) is a unique combination of Reservoir Geoscience and Reservoir Engineering centred around the individual reservoir rather than the wider regional geology (which is covered in our sister programme MSc Petroleum Geoscience). The REM masters degree focuses on equipping students with the skills and knowledge they need to develop predictive models of the reservoir.

Most development decisions in oil companies are based on the predictions of computer models of the subsurface. The Reservoir Evaluation and Management MSc teaches students the most effective ways to combine the geology, geophysics and reservoir engineering disciplines in order to develop and run computer models which provide the most robust predictions.

More information about the MSc is available in Heriot-Watt's online prospectus:
http://www.postgraduate.hw.ac.uk/prog/msc-reservoir-evaluation-and-management/

About the programme

The main objective of the MSc programme is to provide a thorough training in aspects of reservoir geology, geophysics and engineering related to the appraisal and development of subsurface hydrocarbon resources.

The programme is deliberately intensive, typically consisting of working a full 5 days per week of lectures and practical work, including labs or tutorial exercises designed to teach practical work, in addition to learning theory. The programme also includes two field trips to observe geology in the field for those with and without prior geological experience.

The most challenging and fulfilling aspect of the Reservoir Evaluation and Management programme is the project skills, particularly the team project, where students are tasked to propose a development plan for a real field. The project integrates all the learning in reservoir geosciences and engineering disciplines and reinforces the learning through team work.

Topics covered:
=============
• Reservoir concepts
• Reservoir sedimentology
• Rock mechanics, geomechanics and geophysics
• Formation evaluation
• Well testing and production logging

Employability

This course provides specialist education tailored to the upstream and downstream petroleum industry. The relevance of this education, combined with our careful selection of candidates, has encouraged oil and gas companies to target our graduates for recruitment over the years.

The petroleum industry is subject to dramatic changes of fortune over time, with the oil price capable of very rapid rates of change in either direction. Petroleum, however, remains the dominant source of energy with current world production of oil and gas at record rates. In this environment, companies face increasing technological and commercial challenges to keep their wells flowing and are increasingly dependent on input from petroleum engineers and geoscientists. 

It is widely recognised that a steady influx of fresh people and ideas is vital for the longer-term success and stability of an organisation. As a result, it is expected that recruitment will continue, especially if you have the motivation and appropriate qualifications.

Student Quotes

“I decided to study at the College of Engineering as it is a highly reputable engineering department.

My favourite memories of the course are the practical aspects and the lab work. Group projects have given me the opportunity to work in a team to overcome engineering-based problems. Studying at the College of Engineering has given me a good knowledge of engineering principles and has helped me to apply this to real life problems.

As part of my time here, I took part in the IAESTE programme. I worked with the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Manipal, Southern India, on a development project involving an irrigation system.

My future plan is to get some experience in an engineering firm, and hopefully, this experience will allow me to work abroad for an NGO on further development projects."
