February SPE-WA Lecture; Rock Typing: A Key Parameter in Reservoir Simulation
February 27 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm| Free
This is a one-hour Lecture about significant role of Rock Typing in reservoir modeling. The Lecture is a concise version of a 2-day course entitled: Applied Rock Typing; concentrating on the landing points of rock typing in reservoir simulation.
Rock Typing is discussed as an essential part of dynamic reservoir modeling; providing a distinction between different rock groups in contribution to fluid flow in the reservoir. It is demonstrated that Rock Types take the prime role in the static and dynamic definition of the reservoir, history matching process, well planning, and more. The presentation is associated with practical examples from case studies.
