Waterflooding for Oil Reservoirs - Fundamentals, Practical Applications and Case Studies, Short Course

  • Application Deadline
  • 6 days
University rank #482 (QS) ,
This Waterflooding for Oil Reservoirs - Fundamentals, Practical Applications and Case Studies course from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS will highlight some basics (Wettability, Capillarity, Buckley Leverette & frontal advance theories) and practical applications to estimate the recoverable reserve using Analytical and Empirical methods (Dykstra Parson) via hands on approach.  


The main technical issues & challenges affect the performance and efficiency of water injection to achieve its objective will also be emphasized. The issues & challenges to be highlighted and discussed in the course are: 

  • Structure uncertainties (barriers, faulting & continuity)
  • High failure rate of Commingled injection of thick and thin bed reservoirs
  • Injectivity deterioration caused by poor water quality specification and fine migration
  • Frac injection vs Matrix injection: the pros and cons.

This Waterflooding for Oil Reservoirs - Fundamentals, Practical Applications and Case Studies course is offered by Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS.


Upon completion of this course, participants will have a good exposure to the practical aspects of waterflooding implementation in the field, and a theoretical background to field practitioners.
