Undergraduate course

Reservoir Technology II

Semester of Instruction

Autumn

Objectives and Content

The course gives a basic introduction to recovery methods that are used for recovery of petroleum on the Norwegian continental shelf. Also, the course gives an introduction to unconventional methods that could have a potential of improving the recovery from the petroleum fields. Topics includes properties of reservoir rock and petroleum fluids, PVT-analysis, phase equilibrium, transport equations, material balance, microscopic displacement, volumetric sweep, decline analysis, fractured reservoirs, and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) with an emphasis on fractional flow analysis.

Learning Outcomes

After the course PTEK213 the student will be able to:

  • describe characteristics of the petroleum fields on the Norwegian continental shelf regarding reservoir properties and fluid properties
  • describe critical parameters that affect the recovery of petroleum
  • apply analytical models (dynamic and static) in order to add understanding of the physical/chemical processes that are relevant for the recovery performance
  • carry out reservoir engineering calculations

Required Previous Knowledge

None

Recommended Previous Knowledge

Knowlegde of basic reservoir technology and chemical thermodynamics.
