Textbook: 1. Reservoir Engineering Handbook, 3rd Edition, Tarek Ahmed, Gulf Professional Publishing, 2006, ISBN 0-7506-7972-7. 2. Applied Petroleum Reservoir Engineering, 2nd Edition, B.C. Craft and M.F. Hawkins, Revised by R. Terry, Prentice Hall PTR, 1991, ISBN 0-13-039884-5. 3. Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering, L.P. Dake, Elsevier Science B.V., 1998, ISBN 0-444-41830X. 4. Handouts, lecture notes, assigned specific chapters from other books and journal papers. Although the reading material and slides are sufficient for basic understanding, students are expected to take notes and ask questions in class. Course Objectives 1. Explore the techniques employed in acquiring reservoir engineering data and evaluations plans. 2. Familiarize the students with the fundamentals of reservoir engineering. 3. Evaluate and use rock and fluid property data in reservoir engineering 4. Characterize the behavior of different reservoir types and drive mechanisms. 5. Understand the capabilities, limitations and uncertainties of the deferent reservoir engineering and characterization techniques. 6. Calculate reservoir volumes, hydrocarbons in place, and reserves. 7. Learn the fundamentals of fluid flow in porous media. 8. Understand the fundamentals of immiscible fluid displacement mechanisms and water drive techniques. 9. Explore the basics of pressure transient analysis methods 10. Quality control reservoir data for engineering purposes. 11. Develop an understanding of the importance of reservoir engineering as a megascopic tool of reservoir description. 12. Students should be able to use and integrate reservoir engineering data and methods within the dynamics 13. Reservoir modeling.

Course outcomes By completion of PENG 331 course, students will be able to: 1. Understand the basic reservoir engineering techniques and how they complement each other for primary and secondary recovery. 2. Appreciate the importance of good reservoir engineering for optimum hydrocarbon recovery. 3. Use all the available data from the different scales of reservoir characterization to understand the fluid flow in the reservoir. 4. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering. 5. Identify, formulate, and solve reservoir engineering related problems. 6. Follow the relations, developments and indications of reservoir and aquifer data. 7. Calculate the initial, reserve and movable hydrocarbons in the reservoir. 8. Analyze, design and conduct different reservoir engineering evaluation scenarios and applications. 9. Deal with the level of uncertainty in reservoir engineering in problem definition and solution. 10. Prepare for the dynamic reservoir simulation. 11. Integrate in multidisciplinary team approach to solve the reservoir heterogeneity challenges. 12. Demonstrate capability to perform calculations relating to all concepts above.

You are responsible about attending all classes, quizzes, exams and field trips (if any). No exception. Class activities are more important than any other activities including sports, political and social. Homework must be submitted hand written in pencil on ngineering Book. Homework must be clean E and neat. There will be no make-up quizzes or exams unless you have a very valid reason approved by the instructor. It shall be the general policy for this course that all work shall be graded on the basis of answers only partial credit, if given, is given solely at the discretion of the instructor. All work requiring calculations shall be properly and completely documented for credit. All grading shall be done by the instructor, or under his direction and supervision, and the decision of the instructor is final. Only in very rare cases will work be considered for regarding; e.g., when the total number of points deducted is not consistent with the assigned grade. Partial credit (if any) is not subject to appeal. Work which, while possibly correct, but cannot be followed, will be considered incorrect and will not be considered for a grade change Cheating and plagiarism will not be tolerated. Grading Policy Attendance and Class Participation In Class Quizzes Assignments (Homework) Mid Term Exams (3, 15%) Final Exam (Selected Units TBA) 5% 15% 10% 45% 25%
