Integrated 3D Reservoir Modeling Workshop

4.5 Average client rating (based on 115 attendee reviews)

The need for robust reservoir models as part of field management has shown significant increases in many oil companies worldwide. This requires all team members to understand the work flow in developing integrated reservoir model by integrating geological, geophysical, petrophysical and engineering information in a consistent manner. A proper development of reservoir models is not only helpful in managing day to day operations, but it is also important in long term planning. This process is inherently interdisciplinary and requires understanding and importance of all the disciplines.

The objective of this 5-day course is to provide the participants, who is either the beginner or intermediate reservoir modeler, with the solid knowledge needed to develop robust reservoir models.

The course consists of both the necessary background theory and practical session. Combination of research material and field experience are presented to support the building of the modeling workflow. It covers the topics from structural modeling, followed by facies, rock type and property (porosity, permeability and saturation) modeling, volumetric with uncertainty analysis with static and dynamic ranking criteria, and upscaling. All practical exercises are done using PETREL. The process starts with importing well and other related field data all the way to upscaling, ready for dynamic modeling purposes.

This course is important for reservoir modelers or for any geoscientist/engineers involved in an integrated reservoir study. It is not intended to make anyone an expert geologist, geophysicist, petrophysicist, or engineer. Instead, it is intended to expose various geoscientists and engineers to the entire process of integrated reservoir model. The course will develop improved appreciation of the other disciplines’ needs as well as the necessity of the feedback during the integration process.
