Geophysical Reservoir Characterization


This course is designed to bring practicing Geoscientists to date on recent approaches and techniques for achieving improved geophysical reservoir characterisation. The course deals with the various aspects of the traditional approach of exploration geophysics as well as advanced aspects of reservoir geophysics. It considers the application of geophysical techniques as tools for refining development strategies and improving production efficiency.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Carry out geophysical characterization of reservoirs using integrated well log and seismic data.
  • Understand methods of integrating well log and seismic data for the geophysical characterisation of reservoirs.
  • Appreciate and apply latest techniques for seismic inversion.
  • Analyze data for estimation of potential reserves.
  • Evaluate petrophysical reservoir parameters using well logs
  • Apply geostatistical techniques to reservoir analysis
  • Make estimates of reserves based on petrophysical and geophysical data
  • Use seismic data and seismic attribute analysis to determine reservoir properties.
