About the course

Course description

The oil industry has clear objectives to maximise recovery from oil and gas fields, and to extend the life of existing fields. This course aims to meet the need for skilled personnel by training graduates that specialise in appraisal/development/production geoscience and the fundamentals of reservoir engineering. There course features training in seismic interpretation which leads into modelling of the reservoir, fluid flow, and the impact of recovery mechanisms and dynamic displacement.

Semester 2  comprises four specialist units:

  • Integrated Subsurface Description , covering 3D seismic interpretation and visualisation; trapping framework; reservoir framework; reservoir and fluid properties; uncertainty and risk.
  • Oil and Gas Reservoir Dynamics , covering
