ENCH 657 - Advanced Reservoir Engineering - Winter 2024

Formulation and solution of reservoir-engineering problemsincluding combination of variables, Laplace transform, approximate Integral methods, and solution methods of moving boundary problems. Examples from thermal processes (e.g. hot waterflooding, SAGD), different recovery mechanisms (e.g. imbibition, expansion drive, solution-gas drive), well testing problems and naturally fractured reservoirs.
