MSc Petroleum Geoscience for Reservoir Development and Production


Course Description

This course combines the teaching and research strength of our geoscience and chemical engineering schools. 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. The course concentrates on characterization and modeling of the reservoir, fluid flow, and the impact of recovery mechanisms and dynamic displacement. There are also courses in seismic interpretation.

Semester 2 comprises four specialist modules:

Integrated Subsurface Description: 3D Seismic Interpretation and Visualisation, Trapping Framework, Reservoir Framework, Reservoir Properties, Fluid Properties, Uncertainty & Risk,

Oil & Gas Reservoir Dynamics: Reservoir Compartments, Reservoir Energy and Recovery Mechanisms, Geological Reservoir Modelling, Reservoir simulation, Well Testing

Group Development Project : working in groups of 4 or 5, mentored by research students and staff, and using a typical dataset to undertake a field evaluation.

Field Depletion Planning: Resource Assessment, Rate & Production Profile Prediction, Depletion Plan, Operating an Oil & Gas Field, HSE, Petroleum Economics and Risk Analysis, Reservoir Management, Base Management
