Description

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 integr…

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.

  • Hands-on experience transfer

THE BENEFITS FROM ATTENDING

By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:

  • Recognition, characterisation and prediction of subsurface natural fracture occurrence with their attributes from cores, well logs, seismic and drilling data
  • Fractured rock properties affecting reservoir performance
  • Fractures sensitivity to in-situ stresses
  • Analysis of pressure transient tests
  • Reservoir performance evaluation
  • Awareness of coupled geomechanics/fluid-flow behavior
  • The impact of natural fractures on hydraulic fracture stimulation

TOPICS

  • Introduction: fractures terminology and attributes
  • Workflow for characterisation using both static and dynamic data
  • Recognition and characterisation of fractures from well logs, cores to seismic and drilling data
  • Fracture interrelationship with in-situ stresses
  • Building conceptual models for NFR
  • Appropriate NFR modelling; discrete, continuous and geomechanical models
  • Geomechanical integrated approach
  • Implications and case study
