Geologic/Seismic Integration

Competency Statement:

Integrate multidimensional seismic information and geological data to optimize the processes of reservoir monitoring and exploitation.

Learning Objective:

Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to establish a basis for integrating geophysical and geological data and incorporating them into the reservoir surveillance program.

Assignment Instruction:

Reservoir surveillance is a process of gathering and analyzing the information necessary to control operations and maximize the economic recovery of hydrocarbons. Geologists and geophysicists play a key role in this process, from early exploration and appraisal to the mature stages of production.

In this assignment, you will consider how various geological and geophysical tools can be used for reservoir monitoring, and determine their applicability to the surveillance program for the Upper/Middle Sands.

By the time you complete this assignment, you should be able to establish a basis for integrating geophysical and geological data and incorporating them into the reservoir surveillance program.

The exploration/appraisal program for this reservoir is currently in its third year. So far, four wells have been drilled: 4E1-NE, 5C1-SW (suspended), 2A5-NE and 5A1-SW.
