Reservoir Management


A reservoir is a place where water is collected and stored either naturally or artificially, general for human use including consumption, irrigation, electric facilities, etc. Reservoir management is a process of developing and implementing a reservoir management plan using rules and regulations in order to provide reliable water supplies.  In some cases reservoir plans also endeavor to protect the ecosystem by requiring the most efficient and environmentally sound exploration and exploitation processes. Reservoir management teams who create the reservoir management plan are composed of reservoir engineers, field operators, reservoir geologists, production and facility engineers, and field staff.
