This paper is a snap-shot of an ongoing effort with the ultimate goal of the creation of a robust three-dimensional geomodel suitable for accurate reserve analysis and reservoir simulation. The work to date demonstrates:
Work presented here represents the first iteration of a multiple
iteration process. The model has not been taken to the reservoir simulation
stage due to the need to step back and rebuild the
porosity model using shale corrected porosity (left out in this stage) followed by regeneration of the permeability model.
Additional effort will be in several broad areas; 1) “ground truthing” lithofacies prediction and extrapolation, 2) increasing coverage, 3) improving the neural net model and Petrel models, and 4) moving to reservoir simulation phase. These will be accomplished in the following steps:
