Reservoir Management and Control

Competency Statement:

Optimize reservoir management and control decisions using surveillance techniques, information systems, technical indicators and financial guidelines.

Learning Objective:

Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to do the following:

  • Manage available resources (e.g., reserves, assets, personnel, budget) in order to maximize hydrocarbon reserves and minimize recovery cost.
  • Make appropriate reservoir management and control decisions with the aid of surveillance techniques, information systems and technology applications to generate pressure and production histories, maps and other key reservoir data.

Assignment Instruction:

The Upper/Middle Sands have been on production for about 11 months. Fifteen wells are currently active, and the information that you have available includes both detailed and summary reports of pressure and production behavior. In this assignment, you will use this information to refine the reservoir description, improve well performance and work toward developing an optimal exploitation strategy.
