E-266 - Petroleum Geostatistics

  • Reservoir engineers, geologists, geophysicists, professionals involved in data interpretation and management
  • To provide a comprehensive and practical knowledge of reservoir characterization and modeling, focusing on geostatistical methods and tools
Learning Objectives
  • To use basic geostatistical tools and methods (variogram, kriging, cokriging, external drift)
  • To use vertical proportion curves (e.g. layering, well gridding, statistics, vertical proportion curves building)
  • To constrain geostatistical distribution using additional information (e.g. geology, seismic and dynamic data)
Ways and means
  • Practical examples, hands-on, lab exercises carried out with dedicated software
