Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will be introduced to the reservoir structure, properties and production methods. They will be able to asses reservoir conditions in order to project exploratory and laboratory works for optimization of production process.

Teaching methods



Subject will introduce reservoirs and their parameters necessary for their effective production. Fundamental production methods in various life stages of the reservoir will be presented as well as their applications and technology.
