Syllabus:

The objective of this course is to teach the basic science, technology and related assumptions involved in carrying out an integrated reservoir characterisation study. It will prepare students to understand and interpret techniques that underlie commercial software (but will not teach software usage itself). The emphasis is on providing students with knowledge of a 'toolkit' for, but not a prescriptive approach to, the ultimate goal of constructing 3D static models. The course has three main components. 1) Data sources, quality and analysis, including spatial analysis. 2) Generating 3D models of reservoir properties - classical gridding and mapping, kriging as a data-driven (variogram) form of classical mapping (estimation) and a means of data integration. Simulation techniques are introduced as a means of assessing uncertainty resulting from heterogeneity. 3) Scaling of grids and property models for the purpose of reservoir simulation is the final topic. The integration and application of all the major ideas is illustrated by a case study.
