E-225 - Geological Modeling Workshop for Integrated Reservoir Studies

  • Geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers or petroleum engineers involved in integrated reservoir studies.
  • This course provides participants with an understanding of all data types needed to build a reservoir model (seismic, geological, petrophysical and dynamic) and a clear understanding of the techniques related to reservoir modeling.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • recognize the techniques and challenges related to reservoir modeling (focus on reservoir properties),
  • build required competencies for reservoir geoscientists to analyze a specific dataset and construct a reliable static model,
  • apply the workflow for building a reservoir model using dedicated software,
  • identify the uncertainties and assess them in order to reduce the risk and optimize the investments.
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Interactive presentations and hands-on activities using software dedicated for reservoir modeling (EasyTrace and Petrel).
