Multidisciplinary Reservoir Management

Competency Statement:

Contribute to the efforts of a multidisciplinary reservoir management team, based on a general knowledge of related disciplines.

Learning Objective:

Upon completing this Learning Module assignment, the participant should be able to
  • demonstrate a basic knowledge of disciplines outside of reservoir engineering (i.e., Geology, Sedimentology, Petrophysiscs, Geophysics, etc.), and establish a working relationship with specialists from these disciplines.
  • understand the role of different disciplines in the overall process of reservoir characterization and exploitation.

Assignment Instruction:

Much of our reservoir data comes from disciplines outside of reservoir engineering. The initial structure map, for example, may be generated from seismic measurements and geological interpretation, with subsequent information coming from well logs, cores, production data and other sources.

In this assignment, you will review the well and field data that have been gathered to date for the Upper/Middle sands, so that you can have an idea of what tools are available for describing the subsurface environment. You will also look at how various E&P disciplines may fit into the overall reservoir management task.
