Reservoir Evaluation and Management

This course combines reservoir geoscience and reservoir engineering, centred around the individual reservoir rather than the wider regional geology. The course focuses on how to develop predictive models of the reservoir.

Entry requirements

2nd Class Honours degree in engineering or a relevant science discipline such as geology, physics, chemistry or mathematics, from a British or overseas university. A background in geoscience is useful but not essential. The minimum requirement for English language is IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.

Course modules

Reservoir concepts; reservoir sedimentology; rock mechanics, geomechanics and geophysics; formation evaluation; well testing and production logging; geological modelling and management; reservoir engineering; reservoir simulation; drilling and production technology; petroleum economics; team project; individual project; field trip.

Assessment methods

A combination of examination, coursework and oral presentation.

Sponsorship information

A limited number of scholarships may be available on a competitive basis; the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) awards an annual quota of scholarships for this course.
