Increasing Geological Accuracy in Reservoir Models through Process-Oriented Modeling

An important task in constructing digital reservoir models is the capture of geological detail with sufficient resolution to reduce the uncertainty inherent in interpolation between discrete data points. Even the most sophisticated mathematical or statistical reservoir modeling algorithm, however; remains ignorant of the processes by which reservoir strata are deposited....

3D geologic modelling of channelized reservoirs: applications in seismic attribute facies classification

Geological models are usually used qualitatively in seismic interpretation. This paper illustrates that quantitative representations of detailed geological models can significantly enhance seismic attribute interpretation through facies classification. When applying seismic attribute classification to reservoir facies mapping, one often faces such typical questions as: Which attributes should be used as...
