Integrated Reservoir Management

Program Objectives

The fundamentals of integrated reservoir management involving objective setting, planning, implementing, monitoring, evaluating, and revising will be presented. The requirements for successful operation of a reservoir throughout its entire life cycle are emphasized through concepts such as integration - merging people, technology, tools and data, synergy - multidisciplinary professionals working as a well-coordinated team, and support - company culture and organization removing barriers and fostering teamwork and integration.

This course is designed to help participants better manage their assets by using proven management processes and practices, and integrate the technologies, tools, data, and activities of their multidisciplinary professionals.
