Objectives and Content
The goal of this e-symposium is to review an important dimension in the ways geologist can build and update geological models using information from performance data. The foundation of signals imbedded in production/well test data that indirectly relate to the geological characteristics of producing formations will be discussed. Such data can enhance the information available from other geological and geophysical sources and can help in evaluation of residual oil as target for infill drills and added recovery processes.
Specifically, the e-symposium will cover the following:
- Analysis of geological signals imbedded in performance data
- Workflow processes to extract such information
- Importance of history matching to help in revising geological models
- Examples case studies.
Structure of the E-Symposium
Each e-symposium consists of one-hour live e-symposium, along with material for one full day of independent study. The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).
