Frequently Asked Questions

Q) What is reservoir engineering?

A) Reservoir engineering is a subdivision of petroleum engineering; the mission of reservoir engineers is to maximize the economic recovery of hydrocarbons from the subsurface. The Proven Reserves Exploitation’s reservoir engineering team uses creative applications with tried and true exploitation technology to find additional reserves and value for clients quickly and economically. 

Some of the applications the Proven team uses are numerical reservoir modeling, economic modeling, decline and PVT analysis of reservoir hydrocarbons, production forecasting and work over planning.  In order to maximize a reservoir’s recovery, lead engineers will provide clients with a field development plan.  These plans include cost effective ways of depleting the reservoir such as gas injection and waterflooding.
