Online on Request 2021-2022
This 5-day course presents the Routine Core Analysis (RCA) and Special Core Analysis (SCAL) concepts and experiment that are required in the execution of reservoir engineering studies, reservoir simulation models and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) studies. It describes the different laboratory experimental methods and techniques to develop representative reservoir properties to be used in classical reservoir engineering and numerical simulation reservoir models. The lectures include the coring and transport procedures, native state analysis, cleaning procedures, aging the cores to restore original conditions, describing the best practices for quality control, core description, plugs selection, experimental procedures, and limitations of the results. Field cases of core capture, RCA and SCAL programs for implementation of Enhanced Oil Recovery projects.
By the end of the course, the participant will be able to understand the entire process of planning core acquisition, core preparation, plugs selection, plugs preparation, planning and supervising the experiments and data interpretation, preparing a core capturing program from a drilling campaign, designing a core analysis program for conventional and special analysis (SCAL) and to select representative results for reservoir engineering studies.
