The reservoir engineering focus area is concerned with modern oil and gas production—i.e. reservoir modelling and simulation, oil production, and enhanced oil recovery. During the course of study, you will learn about petroleum thermodynamics and chemistry, transport processes, and ways of describing the flows of reservoir fluids in porous media.
The reservoir geophysics focus area is concerned with petroleum reservoir description and characterization, where you will learn about reservoir geology, mineralogy, and petrophysics. The focus area also aims to increase the students’ knowledge of oil drilling engineering, reservoir seismology, and geophysics.
