Summary:
Practical Reservoir Characterization expertly explains key technologies, concepts, methods, and terminology in a way that allows readers in varying roles to appreciate the resulting interpretations and contribute to building reservoir characterization models that improve resource definition and recovery even in the most complex depositional environments. It is the perfect reference for senior reservoir engineers who want to increase their awareness of the latest in best practices, but is also ideal for team members who need to better understand their role in the characterization process. The text focuses on only the most critical areas, including modeling the reservoir unit, predicting well behavior, understanding past reservoir performance, and forecasting future reservoir performance. The text begins with an overview of the methods required for analyzing, characterizing, and developing real reservoirs, then explains the different methodologies and the types and sources of data required to characterize, forecast, and simulate a reservoir. Thoroughly explains the data gathering methods required to characterize, forecast, and simulate a reservoir Provides the fundamental background required to analyze, characterize, and develop real reservoirs in the most complex depositional environments Presents a step-by-step approach for building a one, two, or three-dimensional representation of all reservoir types

Reservoir characterization as a discipline grew out of the recognition that more oil and gas could be extracted from reservoirs if the geology of the reservoir was understood. Prior to that awakening, reservoir development and production were the realm of the petroleum engineer. In fact, geologists of that time would have felt slighted if asked by corporate management to move from an exciting exploration assignment to a more mundane assignment working with an engineer to improve a reservoir’s performance.

One of the main duties for reservoir engineers is reservoir study, which starts when a reservoir is explored and it continues until the reservoir abandonment. Reservoir study is a continual process and due to various reasons such as complexity at the surface and limited data, there are many uncertainties in reservoir modelling and characterization causing difficulties in reasonable history-matching and prediction phases of study. Experimental Design in Petroleum Reservoir Studies concentrates on experimental design, a trusted method in reservoir management,
