Petrel Structural Modeling: Structural Framework Workflows

This course presents the Petrel* software workflows used to build structural frameworks and geocellular grids integrated with domain knowledge. It aims to improve your reservoir modeling skills and help you achieve a better understanding of the overall reservoir structure.

The training includes:

  • An introduction to subsurface modeling
  • An overview of the structural framework modeling workflow
  • Discussion about the different types of fault complexities you are likely to see in a hydrocarbon reservoir and how you can model them with fault framework modeling
  • The construction of the reservoir horizons at both the un-refined stage and re-fined stages with the creation of the zone model
  • How to detect common input data issues as well as different techniques and tools of quality control to avoid inconsistencies at different stages during the modeling cycle
  • The 2D reconstruction workflow
  • The computation of a depositional space as well as its differences with the 2D reconstruction workflow
  • Structured stair-stepped grids and unstructured depogrids, and advantages and disadvantages for each of the two
