Reservoir Characterization: A Multi Disciplinary Team Approach

The modern team approach to reservoir characterization describes productive zones more reliably through the integration of disciplines, technology and data. Increase your proven reserves, discover by-passed pay, reduce development time and costs, improve production rates, and rejuvenate old fields through the skills learned in this program. The models developed during the program are based on the application of state-of-the-art technical applications within the framework of a multi-disciplinary team approach. 

Reservoir Characterization is the process between the discovery phase of a property and the reservoir management phase.  The process integrates the technical disciplines of geology, geophysics, reservoir engineering, production engineering, petrophysics, economics, and data management. Key objectives of reservoir characterization focus on modeling each reservoir unit, predicting well behavior, understanding past reservoir performance, and forecasting future reservoir performance. Such factors, in addition to staffing needs and expenditures, assert a strong impact on plans for the development and performance of a field. This program illustrates the reservoir characterization process so that each member of the RC team and each of its customers (other departments and management) can appreciate the resulting interpretations and may even contribute to building the RC model.

The value of modern team practices related to corporate efficiency is demonstrated. Case studies of multi-disciplinary reservoir characterization applications allow participants to benefit from “best practices” that have been gathered from the industry. Numerous team exercises provide hands-on practice to understand the needs of other professionals to collect data, integrate data across disciplines, and appreciate the needs of other disciplines and to develop new reservoir characterization skills.  Innovative data sheets are provided to the students to categorize their interpretations within the context of the RC problem. 

The program is built around a preliminary map of the RC process built within MS Project; the process starts with defining the organizational objectives followed by setting up the team, confirming the assignment, reviewing the data, reconfirming/refining the assignment, building a static model, confirming the static model through multi-disciplinary data, building the dynamic model and presenting solutions. 

Target Audience:

  • Geologists
  • Geophysicists
  • Reservoir Engineers
  • Production Engineers

Integrated Reservoir Modeling

As the oil companies define business units and asset teams, it is becoming increasingly important that all the team members understand the workflow in developing integrated reservoir description for that asset.  A proper development of reservoir description is not only helpful in managing day to day operations of the asset, but it is also important in long term planning.   Integration involves using all the available information about the reservoir to develop better understanding of the reservoir.  This process is inherently interdisciplinary and requires understanding and importance of all the disciplines.  Although soft skills are important in working in an interdisciplinary team, this course concentrates on the hard skills required to develop a realistic reservoir description.  

Starting with collecting information and assessing the need for additional data, the course will cover all the topics from structural and geological modeling, estimation of reservoir petrophysical properties using geostatistical tools, up-scaling to simulator model and finally, proper history matching and future predictions in the presence of uncertainties.  This course is important to reservoir modelers involved in any phase of the description work.  The course is not intended to make any one an expert geologist, geophysicist or engineer.  Instead, it is intended to expose various geoscientists and engineers to the entire process of integrated reservoir description and the geostatistical tools that can be used to achieve the goals.  The course will develop improved appreciation of the other disciplines’ needs as well as the necessity of the feedback during the integration process.

Target Audience:
