Practical Reservoir Data Integration in Reservoir Characterization

Audience

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

Technical specialists who are in the business of supplying data to modelers and want to provide the best possible input data (e.g. geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, stratigraphers, engineers).

The course aims to establish a common language that better enables specialists and modelers to collaborate effectively.

Content

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
