Practical Reservoir Data Integration in Reservoir Characterization


Reservoir modelers who need to understand the diverse range and geological significance of data provided to them for the model build.


The mechanics of building a static reservoir model are relatively straightforward with the sophisticated modeling software now available. However, in the headlong rush to gain software-based modeling skills, basic geological concepts are being overlooked. Reservoir modeling software provides any number of sophisticated ways of correlating wells, interpolating rock properties, creating reservoir bodies, generating maps and so on, but are they based on sound geological reasoning? After all, the reservoir modeling software is there to help us represent the geology. The course begins by describing and discussing the static reservoir modeling process which provides the basis for the subsequent sessions.

The remaining sessions in the course describe the key methods and recommended approaches for each of the main data input streams to the model building process and cover the following:

- Fault Analysis
- Depositional Modeling
- Determination of Geological Controls on Rock Properties
- Stratigraphic Correlation
- Mapping

Learning Objectives

This course is intended to focus on the process of building a static reservoir model and look at the key data preparation and interpretation processes that need to be undertaken as part of the model-building process.
