Overview of Reservoir Activities


Anyone who wants to have a better understanding of the Geophysical chain of activities.


Proper development of recovery strategies from oil & gas reservoirs requires a good understandingof the rock and fluid properties of which the reservoirs are made. This course introduces thereservoir activities that follow the processing of seismic data, introducing basic reservoirengineering concepts and methods to enable cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas and experience.

It starts with an overview of reservoir characterization, from basic petrophysics conceptsthrough the importance of geostatistics in data integration. The course touches on the workflowused in data preparation and analysis to build a coherent 3D static model of the reservoir. Thecourse also helps understanding questions crucial to the reservoir : How much oil & gas is there(accumulation)? How much can be recovered (reserves)? How fast can it be recovered (rate)?

Learning Objectives

- Understand how geological, petrophysical, seismic, rock properties and reservoir data are integrated in a consistent manner, using judicious techniques, to construct a reservoir model
- Provide participants with a basic understanding of porous media fundamentals: how oil or gas are trapped or mobilized in porous media
- Introduce reservoir engineering concepts and terminology
- Create awareness of how recovery factors and reserves are being estimated and predicted
- Understand typical assumptions and simplifications required to predict reservoir performance
