This interdisciplinary course integrates modern reservoir modelling and reservoir engineering concepts to address and overcome the key challenges encountered when creating meaningful static and dynamic reservoir models of (fractured) carbonate reservoirs.
Course Level: Intermediate / Advanced Instructor: Sebastian Geiger & Patrick Corbett
Designed for you, if you are...
A geomodeller, reservoir engineer or petrophysicist working on (fractured) carbonate reservoirs, wishing to build a strong foundation in characterising and modelling these complex reservoirs.
How we build your confidence
By using case studies, you will review the challenges and best practices when characterising and modelling (fractured) carbonate reservoirs
Discussions of the integration of core and log data for creating robust reservoir rock-typing approaches for carbonates
It will be explained how fractures can be detected and incorporated in static and dynamic reservoir models
Modern reservoir modelling approaches for carbonate reservoirs will be introduced, that allow us to capture their multi-porosity nature (not specific to certain software packages)
You will explore the advantages and challenges when using digital rock-physics approaches for carbonate reservoirs (incl. simulation exercises)
You will understand how uncertainties in carbonate reservoir modelling can be quantified using static and dynamic data, and how these data can be used for model calibration
