This course addresses the key concepts and challenges encountered when modelling simulating naturally fractured reservoirs and will provide practical guidelines for creating meaningful reservoir simulation models.
Course Level: Advanced / Specialised Instructor: Sebastian Geiger
Designed for you, if you are...
An experienced reservoir engineer working on naturally fractured reservoirs, wishing to refine your expertise in modelling and simulating these complex reservoirs
How we build your confidence
By using case studies, you will review the challenges encountered when producing hydrocarbons from naturally fractured reservoirs
Modern reservoir modelling approaches for naturally fractured reservoirs will be discussed (not specific to certain software packages)
You will learn how to quantify the fundamental processes that drive fluid flow in naturally fractured formations (incl. simple exercises)
You will explore the concepts available in modern reservoir simulation packages and discuss their advantages and disadvantages when simulating primary, secondary and tertiary recovery processes from naturally fractured reservoirs
You will understand why and how advanced history-matching workflows can help to provide better production forecasts for naturally fractured reservoirs
