Risk Reduction for Plays & Prospects Using Quantitative Show

13 November 2015
  |  
Houston, Texas, United States
Who Should Attend
The course is designed to be of benefit to geologists, engineers and technical support people who are involved in oil and gas exploration and production in carbonate reservoirs. As the title states, this is a quick guide that concentrates on methods used to analyze carbonate reservoirs. It is an advanced course and assumes the course participants are already well informed about basic well logging principles.
Objectives

Upon completion of the course, participants will attain the following skills:

  • Look at SW and oil show information quantitatively to determine position in a trap, paleostructural accumulation or migration pathway
  • appreciate multiple tools for understanding how to quantitatively evaluate traps and migration pathways.
Course Content

A variety of GIS and Petroleum Systems modeling software will be reviewed to demonstrate predictive models of migration and entrapment using seals, potentiometric surfaces and faults to define potential new traps. Methods of quantitatively calibrating test and show data to the migration models will be emphasized.

Topics will include:

  • Trap types
  • Fault, Capillary and Pressure seals and the number required for different traps
  • Capillary pressure
  • relative permeability
  • pseudo-capillary pressure curves from por/perm data
  • flow units
  • Winland pore throat analysis

We cover the basics of pressure plots emphasizing seal and pressure regressions recognition. We teach how to recognize and differentiate continuous phase, residual, dissolved hydrocarbon and source rock while drilling shows. We touch on seismic DHIs and focus on new techniques for capturing show data such as fluid inclusion stratigraphy, isotubes, head space gas and cuttings. The course ends with a demo of converting a paleogeographic map to a seals map with/without fault seals and then running vertical and lateral migration models to predict the location of fault and stratigraphic traps.

Course notes will be provided in digital format on USB flash drive only, so electronic devices with a USB port are required for all courses. If you do not have access to an electronic device with a USB port, please contact the AAPG Education Dept. for an alternate method to download the digital course notes.
