E-210C - Integrated Petrophysics for Reservoir Characterization & Modeling Certification

90 days GRE/PETRORES
Audience
  • Geoscientists wishing to increase their knowledge, involved in multidisciplinary teams, willing to widen their knowledge and acquire practical know-how in petrophysical data interpretation used in reservoir characterization and modeling.
Purpose
  • This course provides a comprehensive, practical knowledge of rock properties used for reservoir characterization & modeling workflow, via hands-on activities and case studies using dedicated software for data analysis, data interpretation and reservoir modeling.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • understand concepts, interpretation techniques and analysis methods of rock properties from various data (cores, logs, seismic) in order to apply them to reservoir modeling,
  • characterize a fractured network on a field from various data (cores, logs, seismic, drilling, well-tests),
  • develop the skills to check the validity of structural interpretation on seismic and to assess the structural evolution of their interpretation through time using balancing and structural restoration,
  • apply the current borehole imaging tools and modern interpretation techniques,
  • analyze and interpret a dataset from a specific reservoir study, and to integrate the data in order to elaborate a reliable static model,
  • apply the workflow to characterize and model the fractures network in a reservoir model (real case).
Prerequisite
  • Previous experience is requested in petroleum geology and seismic interpretation.
Ways and means
  • An important part of the formation is dedicated to hands-on activities and simulations on real cases.
  • Emphasis is put on practical work to develop participants’ autonomy and their capacity to make appropriate decisions.
  • Both personal and group work will contribute to team-building, to stimulate debating and communicating about results.
  • Case studies are carried out on most popular software tools used in the petroleum industry.

Training on reservoir petrophysics & geology disciplines
  • Lectures, hands-on activities and case studies are distributed in several modules of one- to two-week long
  • Training content presents a clear operational orientation in order for participants to get familiar with specific techniques via an extensive exposure to simulations on real cases allowing them to anticipate the problems they will have to cope with later in their own projects

  • Presentation & jury
Evaluation of acquired knowledge
  • Weekly knowledge assessment will be conducted
  • Initial evaluation test on training start and final assessment test at the end of the program to assess participants’ learning curve and knowledge acquisition
Project report defence & jury
  • The training program ends with a project on a real case. Participants are involved in a simulated situation and their mission is to summarize, integrate and apply acquired knowledge. Each team will present final results of project to a jury
