About The Workshop :

Material balance analysis is an interpretation method used to determine original fluids-in-place (OFIP) based on production and static pressure data. The general material balance equation relates the original oil, gas, and water in the reservoir to production volumes and current pressure conditions / fluid properties.

This five days course represents the advantages of material balance method for reservoir estimation. The course will begin with the principle of material balance method and the equation. Both oil and gas reservoir estimation using Material Balance Equation will be presented. Then, the instructor will open the discussion. All participants could bring out their problems. Instructor will share his knowledge and experiences and participant could understand the advantages of material balance method.

At the end of the course, the participants will have a case study related to material balance method, case in some field and also try to optimize the study and interpretation of the area.


You Will Learn :

>> Introduction
>> The Principle of Material Balance Methode
