- 1.5 CEU What is a CEU?
Who Should Attend
The class is appropriate for Geologists, Geophysicists, Engineers, and geomodelers who would like a better understanding of how to apply modeling techniques to unconventional reservoirs. Basic modeling principles are reviewed and specific workflows are discussed.
Upon conclusion of this class, participants will know:
- Basic principles of geocellular modeling
- Key workflows for modeling unconventional reservoirs
- How to identify critical relationships between petrophysical and mechanical data
- How to build spatial models with both mechanical and petrophysical data
- How to model shale facies, mechanical and petrophysical properties
- How to prepare static models for flow simulation
- Considerations for presenting the static model to the dynamic model
This class provides an overview of the principles of reservoir characterization and how they apply to unconventional resources. In particular, this call will discuss the basic deterministic and stochastic methods that can be used to address the challenges of gas and liquid-rich “shale” reservoirs. Are common modeling tools such as kriging and conditional simulation appropriate for these types of reservoirs? Is it necessary to model “shale facies,” and if so, how do we define them? Do geocellular grids that follow chronostratigraphic relationships appropriate, or are lithostratigraphic topologies more relevant? What do we need to do to prepare these models for the flow simulator, or can they be simulated? These are but a few of the questions that will be addressed in this class. The class will include the following agenda items:
- Introduction – What makes unconventional reservoir modeling different?
- Data analysis – Analysis of mechanical and petrophysical data
- Facies Modeling - Depositional or Rock facies, what are the differences and which is best?
- Spatial analysis – spatial continuity of mechanical and petrophysical properties
- Property modeling – Integrating petrophysical and mechanical variables
- Natural and induced fractures and their role in unconventional reservoirs
- Uncertainty and sensitivity
- Preparing an unconventional reservoir model for simulation – at the well and field levels
