Course website Course outline Course objectives Learning outcomes This course is designed for the Petroleum Students and other Technical Specialties. This course will consider Introduction to Petroleum Engineering. Exploring of the fields, surveys, planning of the well distribution along the field and its design Generic Objective of the Course: To equip students with the core concepts, methods and techniques of well logging and interpretation. Specific Objectives of the Course: To develop on understanding of the theory in Introduction to Petroleum Engineering To study role of Petroleum Engineering in hydrocarbon exploration , development and exploitation of oil and gas fields build background in field development and reservoir description and well design. By the end of the course the students should be able to learn: Teaching methods Evaluation Role of Petroleum Engineering in exploration and development methods and techniques Essentials of drilling and completion of wells Subsurface safety valves Fishing and casing exit systems Peculiarities of -production systems of the oil and natural gas reservoirs Management of production of oil and gas field Lecture Group discussion Experiential exercise Simulation Case analysis Course paper Others Methods x x x Date/deadlines Percentage (%) Policy Midterm Exam Case studies Class Participation Assignment and quizzes Project Presentation/Group Discussion Final Exam Others Total Preparation for class 30 5 10 15 40 100 The structure of this course makes your individual study and preparation outside the class extremely important. The lecture material will focus on the major points introduced in the text. Reading the assigned chapters and having some familiarity with them before class will greatly assist your understanding of the lecture. After the lecture, you should study your notes and work relevant problems and cases from the end of the chapter and sample exam questions. Withdrawal (pass/fail) This course strictly follows grading policy of theSchool of Engineering and Applied Science. Thus, a student is normally expected to achieve a mark of at least 60% to pass. In case of failure, he/she will be required to repeat the course the following term or year. Cheating/plagiarism Cheating or other plagiarism during the Quizzes, Mid-term and Final Examinations will lead to paper cancellation. Professional behavior guidelines The students shall behave in the way to create favorable academic and professional environment during the class hours. Unauthorized discussions and unethical behavior are strictly prohibited. We ek Tentative Schedule Topics Date/Day (tentative) 1 18.09.2015 Role of Petroleum Engineering. The field life cycle.
