About The Courses

Application of geostatistical techniques to build reservoir models through the integration of geological, core/well log, seismic and production data to generate a consistent reservoir description. Introduces reservoir modeling workflow from construction of the 3D static reservoir model through upscaling and dynamic reservoir simulation. Provides background and insights to geostatistical modeling techniques and the situations where the application of geostatistics could add value. Provides guidance in the assembly and analysis of the required data for geostatistical techniques and the resulting numerical models. Includes extensive hands-on training and problem solving using public domain software. If available, a commercial software (typically PETREL) is used to demonstrate the workflow with a field example.
