TRAINING NATURALLY FRACTURED RESERVOIRS

DESCRIPTION This course introduces basic geologic and engineering concepts, methodology and technology used to characterise, evaluate and manage naturally fractured reservoirs, with their limitations and constraints. It helps answering and understanding questions related to fractured reservoir performance during drilling, production and field development: What are the factors that control fractures behavior under activities of drilling, production and depletion? What are the impacts of such fractures on the reservoir development plans? How can we develop and optimise those reservoirs to enhance oil and gas recovery?A few case studies will be provided to demonstrate the importance of integrated geologic and engineering aspects in developing effective, economical reservoir management strategies for different types of reservoirs. PARTICIPANT A geoscientist or engineer interested in a multi-disciplinary approach with basic geological and reservoir engineering experience TOPICS Introduction: fractures terminology and attributesWorkflow for characterisation using both static and dynamic dataRecognition and characterisation of fractures from well logs, cores to seismic and drilling dataFracture interrelationship with in-situ stressesBuilding conceptual models for NFRAppropriate NFR...
