Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
The aim of this course unit is to provide knowledge on the storage and circulation of fluids in conventional and non-conventional hydrocarbon reservoirs
With this curricular unit, the following competences will be developed:
Ability to understand the different storage and fluid circulation processes involved in conventional and non-conventional hydrocarbon reservoirs
Syllabus:
Introduction
Fluid storage processes
Absorbed state, free state, adsorbed state
Fluid circulation processes
Laminar process versus diffusion process
Unipore versus bidisperse model
Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The syllabus contents are consistent with the objectives formulated for the curricular unit. The syllabus is organized in such a way that students are able to understand the concepts established in the field of storage and fluid circulation in conventional and non-conventional reservoirs, based on the specificities of each type of reservoir
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Teaching will be performed through seminars and tutorial sessions.
The assessment process will include continuous assessment based on class work and discussion.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The teaching methodology adopted, based on the points mentioned above, aims to provide the necessary tools to achieve the objectives set for the discipline, so that the knowledge acquisition based on the different approaches is able to achieve an original PhD dissertation.
