Waterflooding is one of the most commonly used advanced oil recovery techniques in the world. This course introduces the basic concepts of water-displaced oil and offers techniques for estimating utilization, evaluating behavior, and tracking the performance of waterflood projects.

In the oil industry, testing of oil wells involves carrying out a series of planned data collection activities. The data obtained will be analyzed to increase knowledge and better understand the properties of hydrocarbons and the characteristics of oil reservoirs. There are many types of well tests and various ways to categorize test types by its objectives. However, the data collected during the study period include the volume flow and pressure observed in the selected well. Well test results, such as flow rate and diesel ratio data, may support the well allocation process in an ongoing production phase, while other data on reservoir capacity support reservoir management.

This course provides students with a thorough introduction to the principles of oilfield chemistry and corrosion. It, also, describes the properties and applications of anti-corrosion chemicals used in oil and gas production, and introduces the main theories of corrosion science and engineering, with particular reference to the oil and gas industry.
