Petroleum Systems Modeling

Audience

Petroleum geologists, geochemists and exploration geologists involved in the petroleum systems evaluation of frontier basins, play-fairway analysis and prospect risks.

Content

Introduction:

  • Key aspects of petroleum systems modeling and sedimentary basin analysis, petroleum system elements evaluation, benefits of 1D vs. 2D vs. 3D modeling

Source Rocks:

  • Depositional environments, kerogen types; geochemical parameters - TOC, Rock Eval, Pyrolysis GC; kinetic models, timing of hydrocarbon generation; petroleum properties

Heat Sources & Heat Flow:

  • Crustal heat flow and temperature-time histories, radiogenic heat production, heat transfer, effect of different heat flows on maturity evolution

Calibration Parameter:

  • Temperature data, paleo temperature data, maturity data and other calibration data

Fluid Flow:

  • Petroleum generation and expulsion; primary, secondary and tertiary migration; migration methods in basin modeling; migration losses; material parameters and pressure prediction

Overview on the Workflow in 1D Modeling:

  • Input data and boundary conditions, burial history, temperature and maturity modeling

2D & 3D Migration Modeling:

  • Case studies on real petroleum system models: facies distribution,source rock and seal distribution; hydrocarbon generation, migration, accumulation and preservation; simulation and sensitivity analysis

* Participants will learn how to build and calibrate 1D models.
