Audience

    • Geologists and reservoir engineers involved in integrated reservoir modeling.

Level

  • Proficiency
  • This course provides participants with a clear understanding of the techniques related to upscaling.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • recognize the techniques and challenges related to upscaling (properties, methods, validation),
  • build required competencies to analyze reservoir heterogeneities in order to define the aggregation rate,
  • apply the workflow for generating an upscaled grid using dedicated software Petrel™ and Eclipse™,
  • validate the upscaled grid (static and dynamic models).
Course Content

INTRODUCTION TO UPSCALING

0.25 day

  • Objectives of upscaling.
  • Why upscaling?
  • Aggregation rate, up-layering, heterogeneities, geological features.
  • Properties to upscale: porosity, net-to-gross, rock types, saturation, permeability.

UPSCALING METHODS

0.5 day

  • Algebraic methods: Cardwell and Parsons.
  • Numerical methods: flow based method.
  • Criteria to choose the upscaling method.

VALIDATION

0.25 day

  • Static validation: volumes, histograms.
  • Dynamic validation: volumes, simulation results on fine and coarse grids, well transmissivity.

UPSCALING WORKSHOP: REAL CASE STUDY

2 days

  • Geological model: heterogeneities.
  • Facies proportion curves analysis.
  • Up-layering definition: choice of the most appropriate up-layering.
  • Zone division and zone mapping.
  • Scale-up properties methodology: choice of the most appropriate method.
  • Volume calculation: static validation.
  • Dynamic validation: simulation and comparisons with the fine model.
  • Synthesis and wrap-up.
Ways & Means
  • Interactive presentations, hands-on real case study using software dedicated for reservoir modeling: Petrel™ and Eclipse™.
