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

    Development and exploration geologists, geophysicists, petroleum engineers, reservoir engineers and technical personnel with prior experience in Petrel.

  • Prerequisites

    Petrel Geology or equivalent Petrel experience. General good knowledge of Petroleum Geology.

    How to get from the Airport to Oslo city

    When you get to Oslo Airport Gardemoen the easiest and fastest way to get to town is by taking the “Flytoget” (the airport express train). It takes only 21 minutes to get to Oslo Central Station. The ticket is 160 NOK, and can be bought with creditcards on special new credit card machines before you board the train. (Note: when going back to the airport you have to slide your card through the machine before and after the journey). Once at the Central Station it would be easiest to then take a taxi to the hotel.

    Please find the links to the train and bus schedules below:

    How to get to the Schlumberger offices in Asklakveien 14E

    The Underground station is a blue sign with a big T in a circle (“T-bane”). Buy a ticket before you get on the train (See Fares below). Take line number 5 towards Østerås and get off at Røa. The stop before Røa is called Hovseter.

    If you wish you can take a taxi from the hotel to Schlumberger’s offices. If you're traveling in a group, this may be cheaper and easier than catching the train. The trip will take approximately 15-20 minutes, depending a bit on traffic of course.

    10 minutes walk: When you get to Røa station you go to the other side (as though you are taking the train back) and start walking over the parking place and on to a small gravel road. Then continue straight through the housing area and past the parking place. You then take a left and continue straight on to the road makes a natural right turn. You will see Schlumberger’s offices on your left hand side.

    All tickets are valid on buses, tram (trikken), metro (T-bane), boats and local trains within Oslo. Tickets have to be validated before starting the first trip.

    Note: In case you register from any of the following companies:
    Addax Petroleum, Amerada Hess, BG Group, ConocoPhillips, Gaz de France Suez, RWE Dea, Shell, Statoil or Talisman Energy a Purchase Order is required.
