Petrel Fracture Modeling

4.5 Average client rating (based on 128 attendee reviews)

This course covers the concepts of fracture modeling in relation to how it is used in Petrel and the oil industry in general. It focuses on which input data are available (like image log interpretations) and how they can be used in Petrel. Various processes will be used to view, quality check and manipulate the input fracture data (logs, stereonets, etc.)

 In Petrel, fracture modeling is split into two processes; generation of a Fracture Network model and Upscaling fracture attributes to generate fracture porosity, permeability and Sigma (connection) factor. The Fracture network model consists of a Discrete fracture network (DFN) and Implicit fracture properties (IFM). Various geological, structural and  seismic fracture drivers will be used for Fracture intensity description, and  ultimately combined using artificial neural networks. The fracture modeling course will briefly cover how the output fracture properties can be used for simulation.

    Lothar Schulte is a geoscience expert, instructor, lecturer, and Principal Geoscientist for Schlumberger. He got his PhD in Natural Science.

    His strong expertise in Geophysics and Geology was developed through a 30 year career mainly in oil industry. He started his career at a German consulting company where he worked as geohydrologist. In 1984 he joined the German oil service company Prakla-Seismos where he did seismic data processing. In 1989 he joined Schlumberger where he supported seismic interpretation systems in The Netherlands.

    Presently, he is working as Principal Geoscientist in Far East where he is doing consulting work as geomodeler and geophysicist, conducting customized training, writing training manuals and supporting Petrel software. His scientific background is documented in over 30 internal and external publications.

  • Audience
