The different elements and processes that make the petroleum system and hydrocarbon reservoirs in the earth subsurface.
Basic knowledge on the different concepts and methods that geoscientists use to understand the 3D geometry and properties of petroleum reservoirs.
Recognize different depositional and tectonic settings of sedimentary rocks and how they may impact hydrocarbon reservoirs. understand sampling of reservoir fluids for component and PVT-analysis.
Understand experimental techniques for component and PVT-analysis.
Understand use of component and PVT-analysis for reservoir and production technical computations.
Employ and understand use of a PVT-simulator.
Required prerequisite knowledge

Mandatory exercises for reserve calculations of oil and gas in reservoirs on the Norwegian Continental shelf, with assignment of reports for evaluation.
PVT of Fluids
Completion of mandatory lab assignments are to be made at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be communicated as soon as possible to the laboratory personnel. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times are made unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed upon.
Mandatory assignment of laboratoy reports for evaluation.
