Reservoir characterization involves the understanding and methods used to characterize reservoir heterogeneity. This course provides a special focus on reservoir properties in constructing realistic 3D images of its geological and petrophysical properties. The course covers an extensive amount of case studies from various geological fields. This will also provide methods in the predicting reservoir performance in an integrated approach through reservoir geology, petrophysics, and reservoir engineering.
- Understand the affecting characteristics of in reservoir characterization
- Learn the application of sequence stratigraphy to reservoir characterization
- Relate seismic and log data to reservoir properties (reservoir characterization)
- Manage risk factors and error margins in predicting depositional environments
- Integrate different data sets for geology, petrophysics, and reservoir engineering application
- Use geological and petrophysical data to understand the rock fabric
- Characterize the reservoir rock types using logs, pressure data and SCAL data
- Predict local variaciones with in the reservoir
- Understand the integration between static and dynamic data
- Build a geological framework with a zonation scheme that honors the flow units.
- Understand how to integrate seismic and faults in the reservoir framework.
- Learn how to incorporate fracture networks into a modeling process
- Use deterministic and stochastic algorithms to propagate petrophysical properties in three-dimensions
- Build saturation model honouring capillary pressures by reservoir rock types and fluid contacts
- Learn the process of ranking realizations and perform averaging and upscaling of properties
- Perform volumetric calculations and quantify the uncertainties.
