Introduction to Reservoir CharacterizationRCM/INFOGEOL

Who should attend?

  • This course provides participants with an understanding of all types of data needed to build a reservoir model (seismic, geological, petrophysical and dynamic) and a clear understanding of the techniques related to reservoir modeling.
Audience :
  • Geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers or petroleum engineers involved in integrated reservoir studies.

Level : Foundation

Course Content

  • INTRODUCTION TO RESERVOIR CHARACTERIZATION

      • Reservoir characterization and modeling objectives.
      • Characterization and modeling workflows.
      • Data types, representativeness and related uncertainty.
      • Challenges of data integration.
  • RESERVOIR ARCHITECTURE

      • Seismic interpretation method and pitfalls. Hands-on: case study.
      • Well log analysis. Hands-on: quick-look analysis.
      • Static and dynamic information integration.
  • FACIES ANALYSIS - ROCK TYPING

      • Litho-facies analysis (core description and upscaling methods).
      • Introduction to rock typing: principle of electro-facies and petro-facies analyses.
      • Statistical analysis of sedimentological data (VPC analysis).
  • PETROPHYSICS & ROCK PROPERTIES - RESERVOIR HETEROGENEITIES

      • Petrophysics: principles, reservoir parameters.
      • Petrophysical parameter modeling (water injection simulation).
      • Heterogeneities: identification and inventory.
      • Wrap-up session.

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.

Ways & Means

  • Interactive presentations, practical exercises and hands-on activities.
