February 26-27, 2020. Bogota

This practical course is for reservoir engineers and geoscientists who want to understand the reserves evaluation process and guidelines; and wish to reinforce their reserves evaluation skills.



At the end of the course, the participant should:

  • know what data must be gathered
  • understand and be able to use volumetric resource analysis
  • generate preliminary technical reserves and resource estimates
  • understand the importance of the evaluation results
  • identify topics that require additional analysis
