This book gives practical advice and ready-to-use tips on the design and construction of subsurface reservoir models. The design elements cover rock architecture, petrophysical property modelling, multi-scale data integration, upscaling and uncertainty analysis.
Philip Ringrose, Geoscience Specialist and Adjunct Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and TRACS Training Director Mark Bentley share their experience, gained from over a hundred reservoir modelling studies in 25 countries covering clastic, carbonate and fractured reservoir types.
The intimate relationship between geology and fluid flow is explored throughout, showing how the impact of fluid type, production mechanism and the subtleties of single and multi-phase flow combine to influence reservoir model design.
The handbook is used as part of the Reservoir Model Design course
