Book Description :

Geophysical techniques apply the principles of physics for study of physical responses of rocks under passive or active perturbation. Geophysical data acquisition, processing and interpretation are driven by established scientific principles. Data from geophysical tools provide coverage with spatially continuous high density measurements. Well data like cores and well logs provide vertically high resolution measurements at the well location, however, the distribution of wells is sparse and discontinuous. The detailed spatial coverage from geophysical data are calibrated with analysis of well logs, pressure tests, cores, geologic depositional knowledge and other information from appraisal wells. The methods use high precision sensors that measure the properties on the earth's surface, in oceans, in wells and from the air, also from satellites. They measure changes of physical properties and calibrate the measured geophysical attributes with rock properties. The data play important role in developing a gross reservoir model. The reservoir architecture or structure and the reservoir rock and fluid properties are derived from the analysis and data integration. Other reservoir properties that can affect geophysical measurements are density, oil viscosity, stresses, and fractures. The interpretation has inherent ambiguity or multiple interpretations. Geophysics contributes to reservoir characterization, reservoir monitoring and its management by adding maximum value in improving production plan and by minimizing risk e.g., risk of dry hole, risk of blow out, risk of in-efficient recovery process, among others. Multiple geologic parameters are assessed with the same geophysical data.

Book Description :

The process of drilling an oil or gas well requires knowledge of all geologic features expected to be encountered along the way—from the surface of the ground to the target reservoir. Thus, in addition to steering the well so as to intersect hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs, the reservoir engineer must assure to a reasonable degree of confidence that the well drills successfully and safely to the target. Geophysical measurements help ensure a successful drilling program. 3D seismic provides a picture of the subsurface from the surface to the target.

Book Description :

Origin of petroleum begins with the formation of organic matter, burial of organic matter in a basin maturation of the organic content with pressure temperature at burial depths. Petroleum system includes source rocks, reservoir rocks, reservoir traps, migration paths, seals etc. Hydrocarbons mature in source rocks migrate into reservoirs. Reservoir rocks are containers of hydrocarbons with sufficient interconnected pore spaces, these are sedimentary rocks clastic (sandstone shale), carbonate rocks. Migration pathways for matured hydrocarbons- migration is in separate phases from higher potential to a lower potential, from deepest to the shallowest. The hydrocarbons migrate into different types of petroleum traps such as anticlinal, fault, salt related stratigraphic traps. Reservoir seals are rocks with low permeability drapes hydrocarbons traps to ensure that entrapped fluids do not escape. Integration of disciplines geology, geophysics, petrophysics, is the key to predicting reservoir geometry, volume, in assessment of reserves.

Book Description :

Geophysical methods are being applied that are specifically relevant to the exploration of and production from unconventional reservoirs. While many of the techniques have common applications for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs, there are also some significant differences in focus. Much of the unconventional reservoirs are from shale formations. Characterizing of fracture system in such reservoirs is of prime importance not only to identify the “sweet spots” for well placement but also for optimum drilling and production from such fractured reservoirs. Combining conventional and microearthquake seismic data has proven to improve the characterization process. Another factor for drilling through shale reservoirs is the need for stimulation through hydraulic fracturing. Use of microseismic data for monitoring the frac process has gained prominence in recent years. Different types of design to acquire such geophysical data and to utilize them for multistage fracking process as well as their integration with the conventional seismic data have been developed.

Book Description :

Accurate reservoir characterization is a key step in developing, monitoring, and managing a reservoir and optimizing production. To achieve accuracy and to ensure that all the information available at any given time is incorporated in the reservoirmodel, reservoir characterizationmust be dynamic. To achieve this goal, however, one starts with a simple model of the reservoir at a given time point (a static model). As new petrophysical, seismic, and production data become available, the reservoir model is updated to account for the changes in the reservoir. The updated model would be a better representative of the current status of the reservoir. Both static reservoir properties, such as porosity, permeability, and facies type; and dynamic reservoir properties, such as pressure, fluid saturation, and temperature, needs to be updated as more field data become available. Characterizing a reservoir by updating of both static and dynamic reservoir properties during the life of the field is referred to as dynamic reservoir characterization. Dynamic reservoir characterization is discussed in , dealing with time lapse or 4D geophysical data and reservoir monitoring. This chapter, however, focuses on static reservoir characterization.

Book Description :

Monitoring or surveillance of reservoir fluids during the producing life of a field and mapping of oil–water and gas–oil interface are necessary for understanding the fluid dynamics. This information would allow improving developmental plans, locate production and injection wells, and optimize reservoir management. Engineers would like to have information between the well control for field-wide surveillance of fluid front. This would permit forecasting arrival of water in a producing well or understanding the effectiveness of sweep from the injected water or gas. Geophysical monitoring could have major impact on ultimate recovery and drilling efficiency.

Book Description :

In most oil exploration and production problems, we deal with limited and incomplete data. We are constantly trying to extrapolate information from sparse measurements, for example, sparse well data and limited core measurements on the one hand and large volumes of seismic data with limited spatial resolution on the other hand. We resort to statistical methods to accomplish the data extrapolation and the integration of diverse data sets in constructing a coherent and meaningful model of the subsurface. Traditional statistical methods both for spatial and temporal extrapolation have been used in E&P for several decades. One of the main uses of statistics has been for reservoir characterization through integrating information and data from various sources with varying degrees of uncertainty such as log, well tests, and seismic data. Other applications include establishing relationships between measurements and reservoir properties, and reserve estimation and oil field economics along with the associated risk factors.

Book Description :

Petrophysical analysis of well logs and cores provide information about formation rocks and fluids in the borehole. Various types of well logs measure different properties in the well. Analysis of the data determines the volume of hydrocarbons present in a reservoir, and its potential to flow through the reservoir rock into the wellbore. This helps us to understand and optimize the producibility of a reservoir. When oil and gas wells are drilled, physical property measurements are taken using specialized geophysical instrument packages: either on wireline cables after the drill pipe has been removed (wireline logs), or from the borehole while drilling with instruments attached to drill collars (LWD).

Book Description :

"With the increased resolution power of many geophysical methods, we are seeing direct evidence of seeps on a wide variety of data, including conventional seismic. New methods and technology have also evolved to better measure and detect seeps and their artifacts and reservoir charge and to map migration and remigration routes. In addition, detection of seepage is important for minimizing the risks associated with shallow gas drilling hazards, ensuring platform stability, and preventing well blow-outs. This volume is organized into three sections, each with a different focus. The first section, "Descriptions and Observations of Seeps", includes field studies, observations of seep environments, migration systems, and use of modern sampling techniques. The second section, "Science of Seepage -- Methodology", discusses new techniques including DNA sampling, use of biomarkers, Neural Network analysis, and remote multispectral analysis. The final section, "Implications of Seeps", shows how seeps may be used to reduce prospect risk and assess risk elements such as trap seal and fault leakage. This volume is intended to be a reference for understanding seep occurrences and demonstrating the development and use of new technologies to image them with a focus on exploration and field development applications. It will be a valuable reference to geologists, geophysicists, and petroleum engineers everywhere"--Provided by publisher.

Book Description :

Reservoir characterization as a discipline grew out of the recognition that more oil and gas could be extracted from reservoirs if the geology of the reservoir was understood. Prior to that awakening, reservoir development and production were the realm of the petroleum engineer. In fact, geologists of that time would have felt slighted if asked by corporate management to move from an exciting exploration assignment to a more mundane assignment working with an engineer to improve a reservoir’s performance. Slowly, reservoir characterization came into its own as a quantitative, multidisciplinary endeavor requiring a vast array of skills and knowledge sets. Perhaps the biggest attractor to becoming a reservoir geologist was the advent of fast computing, followed by visualization programs and theaters, all of which allow young geoscientists to practice their computing skills in a highly technical work environment. Also, the discipline grew in parallel with the evolution of data integration and the advent of asset teams in the petroleum industry. Finally, reservoir characterization flourished with the quantum improvements that have occurred in geophysical acquisition and processing techniques and that allow geophysicists to image internal reservoir complexities.

Book Description :

Shared Earth Modeling introduces the reader to the processes and concepts needed to develop shared earth models. Shared earth modeling is a cutting-edge methodology that offers a synthesis of modeling paradigms to the geoscientist and petroleum engineer to increase reservoir output and profitability and decrease guesswork. Topics range from geology, petrophysics, and geophysics to reservoir engineering, reservoir simulation, and reservoir management. Shared Earth Modeling is a technique for combining the efforts of reservoir engineers, geophysicists, and petroleum geologists to create a simulation of a reservoir. Reservoir engineers, geophysicists, and petroleum geologists can create separate simulations of a reservoir that vary depending on the technology each scientist is using. Shared earth modeling allows these scientists to consolidate their findings and create an integrated simulation. This gives a more realistic picture of what the reservoir actually looks like, and thus can drastically cut the costs of drilling and time spent mapping the reservoir. First comprehensive publication about Shared Earth Modeling Details cutting edge methodology that provides integrated reservoir simulations
