GL5019: CHARACTERISATION OF COMPLEX RESERVOIRS (2020-2021)

Last modified: 05 Aug 2021 13:04


Course Overview

The course will give students the skills to interpret
petrophysically complex reservoirs from a variety of sedimentological and
lithological environments. Integration with geology will be emphasised along
with the advanced tools and techniques necessary to characterise these very
different reservoir types.  By the end of
this course, students will understand: how the sedimentary environment impacts
reservoir properties; how those properties may be evaluated; the logging tool
suites available to interpret complex reservoirs; key differences between
matrix and fracture based production systems; impact of clay type and
distribution on clastic reservoir quality; and the potential volumes available
from unconventional reservoirs.
