The key objective of this course is to understand how petrophysical data (core and log), can be used to calibrate and predict the seismic response of hydrocarbon reservoirs. This can be used throughout field life from reducing exploration risk at the early stages to better quantifying the differences seen in time lapse seismic for reservoir management and field development. Students will learn the nature of reservoir models and the petrophysical and other inputs used to construct them, including permeability predictors, upscaling and saturation height functions. The principles of uncertainty management will be described and applied to the petrophysical parameters.
