March SPE WA Lecture: Validation of Water Saturation Profile in Reservoir Model
March 26 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm| Free - $10
This session is a one-hour Lecture about validation of water saturation profile in geological/ reservoir model. The session is FREE for SPE members only.
Before using reservoir models for history matching, the model needs to be validated for the integrity and consistency of geological structure, rock, and other static properties. Leaving any shortcomings, discrepancies, conflicts, or inconsistencies among such data could potentially ruin the whole simulation work. Validation of water saturation profile is one of the most important parts of such validation process.
In this session, applied methodologies are introduced for validation and quality control of water saturation profile given by geological static model. This methodology covers quality control of water saturation for both irreducible and transition zones and the discussion will be enriched with practical examples from Case Studies.
