Course Description:

This course addresses the application of geo-statistical techniques to build reservoir models through the integration of geological, core/well log, seismic and production data to generate a consistent reservoir description. It will introduce reservoir modeling workflow from construction of the 3D static reservoir model through up-scaling and dynamic reservoir simulation. The course provides background and insights to geo-statistical modeling techniques and the situations where the application of geo-statistics could add value. It will also provide guidance in the assembly and analysis of the required data for geo-statistical techniques and the resulting numerical models. The course includes extensive hands-on training and problem solving using public domain software.
