To provide and understanding of reservoir engineering, drilling and subsea production. This module covers up-to-date techniques employed in ultra-deep water.
reservoir engineering: introduction, reservoir rocks - properties, reservoir fluids, rock-fluid interaction, phase behaviour of reservoir fluids, classification of reservoir fluids
drilling: history, drilling systems, tubing programs, connectors, primary guidance, motion compensation, wellhead housings, running tools, templates and tiebacks, completion overview
subsea production: fundamental requirements, hardware - trees, manifolds, flowlines, analysis of building blocks, subsea developments - examples, case studies, new technologies.
On successful completion of this module the delegate will:
Have a basic understanding of (petroleum) reservoir engineering.
Have a knowledge of the equipment needed and procedures practiced for the extraction of natural hydrocarbons (oil and gas) from offshore locations.
Understand the problems encountered and potential dangers involved during the extraction of oil/gas.
Understand how procedures/equipment have developed in order to minimise the potential dangers.
Understand the requirements in terms of equipment for the production of oil and gas in offshore and subsea locations.
Have an overview of the factors to be considered in the development of an offshore/subsea oil/gas field.
