PGE 388 PGE 388. Advanced Reservoir Engineering. 3 Hours.
Basic concepts of reservoir engineering, with applications to the production of hydrocarbons from both gas and oil reservoirs. Examines the governing equations for flow in permeable media, as well as concepts such as streamline flow; pseudo-steady-state flow, fractional flow, and both immiscible and miscible flow. Uses black oil and compositional reservoir simulators. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in computational and applied mathematics, engineering, or geological sciences. Students must present technical prerequisites satisfactory to the instructor.
