Chapter 18. Geologic Modeling and Reservoir Characterization

18.1 Introduction

Geologic modeling is the art of constructing a structural and stratigraphic model of a reservoir from analyses and interpretations of seismic data, log data, core data, fluid production data, etc., plus inclusion of knowledge on geologic structures acquired by geoscientists from basin sedimentology and outcrop studies of similar formations. Reservoir characterization can be described as the process by which various rock definitions and petrophysical properties (such as facies, flow units, porosity, permeability, net sand, saturations, etc.) are distributed in the geologic model in a consistent and logical manner to obtain a probable representation of the reservoir. ...
