Course description

During field development and production, numerous problems can be solved through integration of geochemical, geological, and engineering data. Geochemical approaches for solving these problems are appealing for several reasons. 1) They provide an independent line of evidence that can help resolve ambiguous geological or engineering data. Example: geochemical data can reveal whether small differences in reservoir pressure reflect the presence of a barrier between the sampling points. 2) They are far less expensive than engineering alternatives. Example: geochemical allocation of commingled production costs only 1-5% as much as production logging. 3) They have applicability where other approaches do not. Example: geochemical allocation of commingled production can be performed on highly-deviated or horizontal wells and on wells with electrical submersible pumps - well types not amenable to production logging. This course explains how geochemistry complements other reservoir management tools. Case studies and exercises illustrate key points. Computer-based exercises illustrate the utility of certain key software packages. Sampling pitfalls and sources of contamination are discussed. The course will NOT cover PVT (Pressure-Volume-Temperature) relationships or equation of state calculation. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Development geologists, petroleum engineers, managers, and technical personnel.
