General

Program Description

Summer/winter school “Hard-to-produce reserves” / “The epoch of hard oil”

Format:

Theoretical and practical classes using the resources of big Tyumen research centers, team-work on the project.

Program:

  • High viscosity oil fields development:
  • High viscosity oil production;
  • Mining method of oil production;
  • Cold methods of oil production (“Chops”, “Vapex”);
  • Heat methods of high viscosity oil production;
  • High density oil: perspective of using: from metallurgy to balneology.
  • Shale deposits development. From Baken to Bazhen:
  • Bazhen formation as a global reserve of hydrocarbon resources;
  • Clay-bituminous reservoirs of Bazhenov formation;
  • Calculation of recoverable reserves in the deposits of Bazhenov formation.
  • Development of the oilfields with low-permeability reservoirs:
  • Peculiarities of low-permeability reservoirs and multi-phase filtration;
  • Methods of production intensification of low-permeability deposits in low-permeability clastic and carbonate reservoirs;
  • Modeling of technologies of oil displacement from low-permeability reservoirs;
  • Identification of the processes of oil displacement from low-permeability reservoirs;
  • Justification of the effective technologies of gas condensate fields’ development.

Target audience: student of foreign universities/companies specialists
