Outline and Purpose of the Course Fluid flow in an oil and gas reservoir and geothermal reservoir is explained. Then, the reservoir properties relating to the flow such as porosity, permeability, relative permeability, capirally pressure and so on are explained. Reservoir fluids properties and their phase behavior are also explained. Furthermore, drilling and completion for a oil/gas well, log interpretation method and well test analysis are explained.
Course Goals The course goals are as follows: 1) to understand the basics of fluid flow in reservoir based on Darcy's law, 2) to master the properties of reservoir rock and fluids and their evaluation methods, 3) to obtain basic knowledge about oil/gas well drilling and completion methods, 4) to understand the log interpretaion method and well test analysis.
