Properties to upscale: porosity, net-to-gross, rock-types, saturation, permeability.
Algebraic methods: Cardwell and Parsons.
Numerical methods: flow based method.
Criteria to choose the upscaling method.
Static validation: volumes, histograms.
Dynamic validation: volumes, simulation results on fine and coarse grids, well transmissivity.
UPSCALING WORKSHOP: REAL CASE STUDY
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.
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).
Ways & Means
Interactive presentations, hands-on real case study using software dedicated for reservoir modeling: Petrel™ and Eclipse™.
