The Course Progression Matrix below shows how the Reservoir Engineering courses in this section are structured within each topic, from Basic to Specialized. On either side of the Reservoir Engineering section, you will see courses in associated disciplines for cross-training. These matrices are ideal for building training plans for early-career staff or finding the right course to build upon existing knowledge and experience.

Duration: 32 hours instructor-led (virtual), plus approximately 88 hours self-paced work
The Applied Reservoir Engineering Blended Program represents the core of the PetroSkills’ reservoir engineering program and the foundation for all future studies in this subject. Numerous engineering practices are covered, ranging from fluid and rock properties to simulation and field development planning.
DURATION: 4 hours instructor-led (virtual), plus approximately 62 hours self-paced work
The Basic Reservoir Engineering Blended Program is designed to help the participants develop a more complete understanding of the characteristics of oil and gas reservoirs, from fluid and rock characteristics through reservoir definition, delineation, classification, development, and production. Data collection, integration, and application directed toward maximizing recovery and Net Present Value are stressed. Basic reservoir engineering equations are introduced with emphasis directed to parameter significance and an understanding of the results. For nearly 30 years this has been one of our most popular and successful courses.
DURATION: 14 hours instructor-led (virtual), plus approximately 58 hours self-paced work
This course gives the non-reservoir engineer a better understanding of reservoir engineering practices and limitations. The course is designed to provide a good understanding of reservoir engineering processes, the required data, and the limitations on the engineers' analysis and interpretations. The course also provides persons who are already well trained in the other upstream petroleum industry technical disciplines with an understanding of the current state-of-the-art practice of reservoir engineering.
These individual modules are available online. Work through them at your pace, whenever and wherever you need them.
