E-227 - Naturally-Fractured Reservoirs: Static & Dynamic Modeling

  • Geophysicists, geologists and reservoir engineers involved in integrated reservoir studies, geomodellers involved in fractured reservoirs looking for a full integration of all available data. Clastics, carbonates or shale play, the natural fractures will play a major role.
  • This course provides a clear and relevant workflow integrating geophysical, geological and engineering data to develop reservoir models for naturally-fractured reservoirs. The course covers the geological aspects of natural fractures and their impact on the reservoir performance.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • build a predictive 3D fracture model, constraining the model with the dynamic data,
  • use neural network in order to recognize what controls the fractures density,
  • identify sweet spots,
  • generate porosity and permeability models for dynamic reservoir simulation,
  • practice reservoir simulation and apply history matching techniques.
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Interactive presentations, practical exercises and hands-on activities on a real case study supported by dedicated specific software for fractured reservoir modeling (FRACPREDICTOR).
Short lectures alternating with hands-on practice on a real case study dataset, using a dedicated software tool for fractured reservoir modeling: FRACPREDICTOR™.
