Sixteen Part Educational Video Series by Aziz S. Odeh

Add to Cart

This sixteen part educational video series covers many of the fundamentals of reservoir engineering. The training is conducted by industry legend, Aziz S. Odeh, and is based on tapes of training courses he conducted for Mobil employees in the 1980s.

Access to these classic training courses is made available by courtesy of ExxonMobil, to benefit all SPE members interested in these topics. While technology has advanced since these sessions were taped, the fundamentals remain applicable, and they provide perspective on the historical basis for topics like reservoir simulation, which has naturally evolved with computing technology.

Presented by Aziz S. Odeh

This education video series is FREE for SPE Members.
