Applied Reservoir Engineering Reservoir Engineering

Course Length: 10 days

Category: Reservoir Engineering

This course represents the core of reservoir engineering training and the foundation for all future studies in this subject. Numerous engineering practices are covered, ranging from fluid and rock properties to simulation and field development planning. Proficiency in using Microsoft Excel to perform calculations and make graphs is desirable. Reservoir engineering is also presented in the context of a modern, multi-disciplinary team effort using supporting computer technology. An extensive manual and set of references are included.

CALEP Evaluation of Canadian Oil & Gas Properties for Land and Energy Professionals Reserves Evaluations

Course Length: 2 days

Category: Reserves Evaluations

Developed by Sproule and offered in partnership with the Canadian Association of Land & Energy Professionals (CALEP) , this 2-day course is focused on helping participants understand both the process of developing evaluations and the resultant cash flow outputs. The goal is to provide land and energy professionals with an understanding of what oil and gas evaluators do and what they report. This course is worth 12 CALEP credits. This course will be taught in person at the CALEP Calgary training site.

Evaluation of Canadian Oil & Gas Properties for Technical Professionals Reserves Evaluations

Course Length: 5 days

Category: Reserves Evaluations

Organized and customized by Sproule , this complete 5-day course presents the foundational components and techniques of evaluating global oil and gas properties. By the end of this course, participants will fully understand the evaluation process, where to source the appropriate data, how to evaluate an oil and gas property, how to interpret evaluations done by others and, ultimately, how to make sound investment decisions. The course lecture material is supported by a number of workshop exercises.

Evaluation of Oil & Gas Properties for Financial & Legal Professionals Reserves Evaluations

Course Length: 5 days

Category: Reserves Evaluations

This complete 5-day course presents the foundational components and techniques of evaluating global oil and gas properties. By the end of this course, participants will fully understand the evaluation process, where to source the appropriate data, how to evaluate an oil and gas property, how to interpret evaluations done by others and, ultimately, how to make sound investment decisions. The course lecture material is supported by a number of workshop exercises. This course will be taught in person in Calgary, AB.

Fundamentals of SPE-PRMS for Technical Professionals Reserves Evaluations

Course Length: 2 days

Category: Reserves Evaluations

This 2-day course presents the fundamental components of the Petroleum Resources Management System (PRMS) of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and provides examples of classification of recoverable volumes of oil and gas in prospective resources, contingent resources, and reserves as the prospects advance towards maturity.

At the end of the workshop, participants will fully understand the PRMS and how to allocate recoverable volumes to the appropriate reserve categories or resources, and to the project’s maturity sub-class. The theoretical material of the course is complemented with exercises to strengthen the concepts on which the PRMS is based.

The resource definitions and course reservations will focus on the specific methodologies used in the PRMS, but they will also compare the classification system and definitions with those used in the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook (COGEH), and other regulatory bodies.

Gas Reservoir Management Reservoir Engineering

Course Length: 5 days

Category: Reservoir Engineering

Natural gas production has become a major part of every petroleum company’s asset base and continues to grow in importance throughout the world. This course will help participants understand the engineering drivers on gas reservoir management and how a gas reservoir’s value can be maximized through sound engineering practices. A full spectrum of gas reservoir engineering techniques is addressed and their application to a large variety of gas resource management options is discussed. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.

For the virtual session, course hours will be 08:00-12:00 CST (GMT – 6:00) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the first week; and Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday for the second week.

Prospect and Play Assessment Technical

Category: Technical

Assessment of plays and prospects is an important tool in managing financial and human resources. This course is a fully modern approach to defining prospect and play volumetrics, uncertainties in defining these volumes and the risk that the accumulation exists. This practical course is adaptable to any workplace. The course evaluates other published approaches and contrasts them with the recommended procedures allowing the participants to choose the very best approach to resource evaluation. This course offers the industry quantitative, probabilistic play and prospect assessment procedures that are consistent and repeatable allowing for direct comparisons play to play or prospect to prospect.

The concepts and techniques learned in the course are applied to real industry examples in exercises and workshops. Tools include comprehensive assessment forms for prospects and plays, and graphs, data tables, and guidelines for making all assessment decisions. These tools help participants estimate risks and success ratios, field-size distributions, field and prospect densities, trap geometry corrections, multiple reservoir factors, porosities, permeabilities, saturations, formation volume factors, gas/oil ratios, formation temperatures, oil and gas recovery efficiencies, API gravities, gas gravities, NGL ratios, and oil and gas yields from source rocks. The forms and procedures are easily adaptable for internal usage in any oil and gas organization. All factors can be handled in either metric or English units.

Reservoir Engineering for Other Disciplines Reservoir Engineering

Course Length: 5 days

Category: Reservoir Engineering

In partnership with PetroSkills, this 5-day course gives the non-reservoir engineer a better understanding of reservoir engineering practices and limitations. The course is designed to provide a good understanding of reservoir engineering processes, the required data, and the limitations on the engineers’ analysis and interpretations. The course also provides persons who are already well trained in the other upstream petroleum industry technical disciplines with an understanding of the current state-of-the-art practice of reservoir engineering. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.

In the July virtual session, class hours will be 08:00-12:00 US Central time (GMT -5:00) on Monday-Friday each week of the course.

In the October virtual session, class hours will be 08:00-12:00 Western Australia time (GMT +8:00) on Monday-Friday each week of the course.

Unconventional Resource and Reserve Evaluation Reserves Evaluations

Course Length: 5 days

Category: Reserves Evaluations

Offered in partnership with PetroSkills, this five-day advanced course is designed to expose attendees to the understanding and application of the latest approaches, techniques and requirements being applied to reserves evaluation within unconventional resources. Particular focus is given to actions and methodologies that are necessary to enhance the reserve categorization. Discussion and class examples will emphasize the testing protocols necessary within the exploration, appraisal and at development phases of the resource life cycle. The course is based around the Petroleum Reserve Management System (PRMS) and variations needed to conform to other national standards such as the SEC, NI-51, SORP, NPD, Chinese, as well as other standards is taught as a stand-alone module. A majority of the offering is focused on shale oil and shale gas resources, with selected coverage of tight gas, coalbed methane and coal seam gas plays also being included depending on participant interest.
