About This Course
This course is designed with the aim of showing the degree of integration necessary in developing an offshore petroleum discovery, from field appraisal to development. The course gives a comprehensive account of the methodology, processes and techniques utilized in developing an offshore oil or gas discovery.
Technically, integration of expected reservoir behavior, well planning and design, and facilities concepts and selection are exemplified through detailed case histories, group discussions and exercises. Commercial aspects related to overall project evaluation are also covered.
Why You Should Attend
You should participate if you want to obtain a comprehensive understanding of key aspects of offshore field development, from appraisal through to development planning and leading up to sanction.
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for project managers, field development and planning engineers, asset managers, petroleum engineers, reservoir engineers as well as field geoscientists and managers who have an interest in or are involved in field development feasibility and planning. In particular, this course would be of interest to managers leading multidisciplinary and diverse functional teams.
What You Will Learn
The course covers the three key elements: reservoirs, wells and facilities, and covers the integration of these with commercial aspects, and the required management aspects, including uncertainty and risk.
About the Trainer
Prof Peter Behrenbruch
Prof Peter Behrenbruch is a consultant specializing in reservoir engineering, field development planning and petroleum management. He has worked for 40 years in the petroleum industry, most recently as Chief Operating Officer and Project Director for AED Oil and East Puffin (2007-09) for the Puffin offshore development, Timor Sea. Prior to his current role, he worked for 16 years for BHP Billiton, most recently as Chief Reservoir Engineer for their worldwide petroleum operations. Other positions with BHP Billiton involved mainly technical and project management, and general management positions. He was the project manager (feasibility) for two FPSO projects, the Skua and Griffin area fields, offshore Australia. He was also the Technical Manager for the Dai Hung project, offshore Vietnam where first oil was achieved in just 18 months from sanction. Before that time, he worked for Shell International (8 years) in the Netherlands, including two years as Senior Lecturer Reservoir Engineering at Shell’s training centre and in Australia, seconded to Woodside Energy, involved in Australia’s largest capital project (at the time), the Northwest Shelf Gas development. He started his career in Calgary, Canada, first with Hudson’s Bay Oil and Gas and then with the US consulting company Scientific Software Corporation.
Peter holds a BSc degree in Physics from the University of British Columbia and a MS degree in Nuclear Engineering from Stanford University. He has been an active member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, including Director for the Asia-Pacific region (1996-98) and as a member of the Board. He was an SPE Distinguished Lecturer during 2001-02 and a PESA Distinguished Lecturer during 2002. He has lectured at many institutions and was a visiting professor at Stanford University in 2000. He has published over 40 papers on both technical and managerial topics. His professional interests are in optimal planning and project management of offshore petroleum discoveries. His primary research interests are in the area of special core analysis and the development of predictive models for reservoir characterisation. He also teaches at the University of Western Australia and at Ho Chi Minh University of Technology.
