E-255 - Advanced Reservoir Geology

18 days RES/RESGEOLADV
Level
Advanced
Audience
  • Geophysicists, geologists and reservoir engineers involved in integrated reservoir studies
Purpose
  • To provide an intensive, practical learning experience in advanced reservoir geology and geological modeling
Learning Objectives
  • To understand all stages of the characterization of a field in preparation for modeling
  • To learn about electro-facies analysis techniques
  • To assess impact of reservoir complexity on dynamic behavior and on modeling
Prerequisite
  • RCM Module 1 or several years of experience as geologist in the petroleum industry
Ways and means
  • Field trips to Dijon and Poitiers
  • Practical case studies
  • Use of dedicated softwares
Observation
Course fees include travel (by train) between Paris, Dijon, and Poitiers, as well as accommodation and transportation in and around Dijon, and Poitiers

Geostatistics 2.5 days
  • Kriging and variations
Workshop – Reservoir characterization and modeling 5 days
  • Electro-facies, rock-typing
  • Conceptual models: sedimentological, stratigraphic, diagenetic and fracture
  • Well correlations - Facies modeling
  • Petrophysical characteristics and modeling
  • Hydrocarbon volume calculation
  • During this workshop, dedicated software will be used
Reservoir studies on outcrops - Field trip 5 days
  • Two field trips
  • Carbonate platform – Sedimentology, stratigraphy, diagenesis and fractures. This field is located in the Burgundy region. Participants will have an opportunity to look at a carbonate reservoir as an analog of the reservoir of a producing field located in the Paris basin. This field will be used as a “field case study” during the geomodeling exercise on workstation
  • Dynamic/static relationship: this field trip will be conducted on a site equipped with aquifer drilling (Poitiers region). Participants will to observe dynamic interferences, with the aim to study the dynamic behavior of a reservoir
Fractured reservoir 2 days
  • Workflow for fractured reservoirs characterization and modeling
  • Fractured reservoir modeling using dedicated software
Dynamics 2 days
  • Introduction to simulation
  • History matching
  • Well tests
Uncertainties 1 day
  • Quantify uncertainties using dedicated software
Conclusions 0.5 day
  • Wrap-up session on RCM Training
