Understanding Reservoir Compartmentalisation: Analysing Structural Uncertainty Workflows

Faults have the potential to compartmentalise reservoirs and have significant impact on sweep prediction and, ultimately, reservoir development cost. Compartmentalisation uncertainty analysis should form a routine part of quality assurance workflows through the entire reservoir development lifecycle.

In this webinar series, we analyse key compartmentalisation uncertainty workflows using horizon and fault interpretations, the impact these workflows have on reservoir prediction, and how to identify and address these issues rapidly and effectively.

Part 1: Fault Tip Extension Prediction – Understanding Resolution Limitations

Predictive fault tip extension workflows based on outcrop studies are well documented and understood. The correct application of these workflows can have significant impact on extension length and compartmentalisation configuration. What can be done to optimise these workflows? And what is the impact of their miss-application?

Join us on Wednesday 1st April for a free, interactive session, including a live demonstration drawing on examples from the Ameland field, NL.

Part 2: Optimising Interpretations For Structural Uncertainty Analysis

A wealth of important information is contained within seismic interpretations. Understanding how key features of a structural interpretation can be a diagnostic for addressing compartmentalisation uncertainty lends itself to a more comprehensive understanding of reservoir risk. What are these key diagnostic features? And how can interpretations be optimised for structural modelling?

Part 3: Addressing Compartmentalisation Uncertainty Using Structural Modelling Workflows

A complete understanding of compartmentalisation risk requires the generation of alternative structural models, but all too often such uncertainty analyses are anchored on single base case models. In this final chapter of this webinar series, we present a method to rapidly generate plausible, alternative structural models, allowing for the routine integration of structural uncertainty in to the reservoir modelling workflow.
