About the Instructor

  • Instructor Dr Curtis Whitson / © C. WhitsonCurtis Whitson is professor of Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
  • He teaches courses on petroleum phase behaviour, well performance, enhanced oil recovery, gas reservoir engineering, and integrated-model optimisation.
  • His areas of research include equations of state, heptanes-plus characterisation, gas condensate reservoirs, gas injection EOR, petroleum streams management and liquid-loading gas well performance.
  • He consults extensively for the petroleum industry, mainly on ‘compositionally-sensitive reservoir processes’ for most major oil companies worldwide.
  • Curtis is also involved in developing new-generation software that allows integrated-model optimisation of large-scale petroleum projects.

“The professionalism of the instructors and quality of delivery of the course including the course material has really been a master class.
I am especially impressed by the instructor’s know-how and excellent grasp of every aspect of the PVT course. Addition of up-to-date techniques or methodologies to the course makes it very relevant to current advancement. And thanks for the references. Huge worth of knowledge shared there. Much appreciated. Well done to all.”
