Our self-paced certified courses mimic the traditional classroom learning style, but you can complete it in your own time. This introduction to reservoir fluid properties covers all the basic concepts and applications of fluid properties (PVT). Topics include fluid composition, properties, types, sampling, measurement, analysis and software applications. Take control of your learning with Baobab.

Who’s it for?

... anyone wanting to gain an appreciation of the components and properties of oil and gas fluids.

  • EXAM - Reservoir fluid properties
    • Courses:

      On completion of the final course exam you will receive a certificate of completion of your course. Recognised by major players in the industry across the world, these certificates will help to confirm your training record and your progress within the profession. Accreditation from the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) is in progress.

    • Skills and competencies:

      Digital badges are awarded upon the successful completion of a set of skills (micro-credentials) that form a competency set for Production and Reservoir Engineers.

    • Earn credits towards a Masters Degree in Petroleum Production Engineering. Coming Soon

      Upon successful completion of a module (set of courses) a certificate will be issued which will enable the user to apply to Robert Gordon University (RGU) to take the formal assessments (coursework and written examination), successful completion of which will give credit towards their M.Sc. in Petroleum Production Engineering.
