How much detail should go into a reservoir model?

How much detail should go into a reservoir model?

Reservoir models need not be unnecessarily complex, nor miss essential detail.
A perennial question, and often addressed poorly in reservoir studies, although always solvable. Our TRACS Training Director, Mark Bentley, takes two minutes in Clashach Cove, Scotland to offer a simple workflow to help decide what to do based on Flora’s Rule and a consideration of length scales.  With a little thought, reservoir models need not be unnecessarily complex, nor miss essential detail.

Mark is also the co-author of the practitioner's handbook "Reservoir Model Design". The book’s central contention is that problems with modelling do not stem from hardware limitations or lack of software skills but with the model design itself. The text studies a range of techniques and seeks to dispel the myths associated with modelling, and the heightened expectations that the rise in the number of software packages and associated geostatistical methods have brought.

Co-written by the Geoscience Specialist and Adjunct Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Phil Ringrose,  the handbook is the culmination of decades of research and experience from two of the industry’s most highly regarded practitioners within reservoir modelling and risk management.
