GL5518: RESERVOIR SURVEILLANCE AND OPERATIONAL PETROPHYSICS (2018-2019)

Last modified: 22 May 2019 17:07


Course Overview

Reservoir surveillance provides an understanding of well and reservoir performance to enable efficient management of production.  The course gives an overview of the role of petrophysics in the long-term monitoring of reservoirs, including use of legacy data in understanding evolution of reservoir performance.  This links to the day-to-day reality of petrophysical operations, which provide many of the inputs to predict reservoir performance and to determine the value of assets.  A clear understanding of modelling objectives, methods to be used and uncertainties, across all of the subsurface disciplines is necessary to ensure that reservoir properties are effectively represented.
