Petrel Property Modeling

4.5 Average client rating (based on 596 attendee reviews)

This course is intended for the user with fundamental Petrel modeling skills. The course covers basic geostatistics, data preparation, data analysis, facies and petrophysical modeling. You will learn different ways to create property models and how to condition models to existing models and secondary data. This course guides the user through concepts, algorithms and software functionalities in property modeling.

The first part of the course focuses on the usage of  basic geostatistical tools, through data analysis.  Also pre-modeling processes concerning well data preparation will be covered. Also here we will look into the first step of the property modeling workflow: upscale well logs to create single property values at well location for each cell. This will create hard data that will be used to populate the 3D grid with either deterministic or stochastic algortihms.

The second half of the course focuses on facies and petrophysical modeling workflows using stochastic methods as well as covering the usage of Kriging for continuous properties. Implementing Data analysis results and using secondary data to constrain the result will also be shown.

For Petrel 2011/2012 classes

This course is intended for the user with fundamental Petrel modeling skills. The course covers basic geostatistics, data preparation, data analysis, facies and petrophysical modeling.

You learn different ways to create property models and how to condition models to existing models and secondary data. You are guided through concepts, algorithms and software functionalities in property modeling.

The first part of the course focuses on basic geostatistical concepts like variogram, Kriging and Gaussian simulation; testing of both methods to see their benefits and limitations. Also pre-modeling processes such as well data preparation, data analysis, and logs upscaling is covered.

The second half of the course focuses on facies and petrophysical modeling using stochastic methods. Data analysis and the used of pre-existing models and secondary data are demonstrated as key issues in the modeling sequence to guide the result.
