Geological Model Updating

Competency Statement:

Update the geological model of the reservoir.

Learning Objective:

Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to apply information from newly acquired well logs, core samples and other data sources to refine the geological model of the reservoir, including its structure, stratigraphy, dimensions and boundaries.

Assignment Instruction:

The geological model is a basic element of any reservoir description. It characterizes such parameters as reservoir structure, stratigraphy and dimensions based on logs, core analyses and other data. These parameters are essential to estimating hydrocarbon-in-place and reserves potential.

In this assignment, you will review available information from the Upper/Middle Sands and compare it with the present geological model. You will then revise the geological model as necessary. Based on your interpretations, you will develop important insights into the reservoir continuity and depositional environment, and establish or confirm the reservoir limits.

By the time you complete this module, you should be able to apply information from well logs, core samples and other data sources to refine the geological model of the reservoir, including its structure, stratigrapy, dimensions and boundaries.

The exploration/appraisal program for the Upper/Middle Sands has been completed, and the reservoir is currently entering its first development year. Wells drilled and evaluated to date are 4E1-NE, 5C1-SW (suspended), 2A5-NE, 5A1-SW and 5A2-SE.
