Integrated 3D Reservoir Modeling Workshop

4.5 Average client rating (based on 121 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.

  • Location


    Bandung is the capital of West Java province in Indonesia. Located 768 m (2,520 ft) above sea level, Bandung has relatively year-around cooler temperature than most other Indonesian cities

    Bandung Sky Line

    Bandung is renowned for its large stock of Dutch colonial architecture; most notably the tropical Art Deco architectural style. The modern and native architectural blending was followed by several Dutch architects that have shaped the city landmarks. In the 1930s, Bandung was known also as the city of architecture laboratory because of many Dutch architects made some experiments with new architectural designs.

    Bandung has served for popular weekend-break destination for people living in Jakarta for many reasons. The cooler climate of highland plantation area, the varieties of food, the cheaper fashion shops located in factory outlets and distros, golf courses, and the friendliness of local people have become the main attraction of the city.

    Bandung Husein Sastranegara International Airport serves direct flights to Batam, Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Denpasar, Palembang and Padang and also international services from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore Changi Airport. The airport is located nearby the Dirgantara aerospace complex and Dirgantara Fairground.
