Naturally Fractured Reservoir Modelling and Simulation

Naturally Fractured Reservoir Modelling Course

Naturally Fractured Reservoir Modelling and Simulation - 5-Day Course

This course addresses the key concepts and challenges encountered when modelling simulating naturally fractured reservoirs and will provide practical guidelines for creating meaningful reservoir simulation models.

Participants will gain confidence through the following training methodologies:

  • By using case studies, you will review the challenges encountered when producing hydrocarbons from naturally fractured reservoirs
  • Modern reservoir modelling approaches for naturally fractured reservoirs will be discussed (not specific to certain software packages)
  • You will learn how to quantify the fundamental processes that drive fluid flow in naturally fractured formations (incl. simple exercises)
  • You will explore the concepts available in modern reservoir simulation packages and discuss their advantages and disadvantages when simulating primary, secondary and tertiary recovery processes from naturally fractured reservoirs
  • You will understand why and how advanced history-matching workflows can help to provide better production forecasts for naturally fractured reservoirs

Suitability - Who should attend?

This Naturally Fractured Reservoir Modelling and Simulation course has been developed for experienced reservoir engineers working on naturally fractured reservoirs, wishing to refine their expertise in modelling and simulating these complex reservoirs.

Outcome / Qualification etc.
