Who Should Attend
Geoscientists and reservoir engineers who need to know how fractured reservoirs differ from conventional reservoirs, how to approach their study in a systematic and quantitative manner, for reservoir modeling will benefit from this course.
Successful participants should be able to:
- determine the major data requirements and exploration and production issues associated with various types of fractured reservoirs
- know what controls short-term and long-term performance in fractured reservoirs
- understand the types of data necessary to evaluate and explore for fractured reservoirs
- handle quantitative assessments of the reservoir
- create a Static Conceptual Fracture Model for reservoir simulation.
This two-day course will cover the basic elements needed in the evaluation of fractured petroleum reservoirs from both an exploration and development point of view. A general sequence of study will be presented, as well as the data types needed to complete the study. A multidisciplinary approach will be stressed including integration of outcrop, subsurface rock data, petrophysical data, rock mechanic principles, reservoir performance data, and geophysical attributes. Examples of quantitative assessments of fracture properties leading to creation of a Static Conceptual Fracture Model will be shown. World-wide examples will be used from the instructor personal experience.
Key topic areas of the course include:
- A workflow for fractured reservoir studies
- Integration of fracture properties, stress state, geophysical attribute & rock modulus data
- Classification of fractured reservoirs
- Predicting reservoir inhomogeneity in fractured reservoirs
- Selection of appropriate reservoir simulation styles for the reservoir
- Creation of a Static Conceptual Fracture Model for the reservoir
- Selection of available fracture modeling packages
- Preparing for flow simulation
