Course description

This course covers geologic and engineering concepts, methodology, and technology used to characterize, evaluate, and manage naturally-fractured reservoirs. Applications and limitations of geologic and engineering procedures and tools are discussed. Field examples and case studies demonstrate the importance of integrated geologic and engineering studies in developing effective, economical reservoir management strategies for different types of reservoirs.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Engineers and geoscientists interested in a multi-disciplinary approach to evaluating and predicting the overall effect of natural fractures on subsurface fluid-flow and subsequent reservoir performance.

Training Course Content

Characterization of natural fractures and fracture systems; Influence of mechanical stratigraphy and structure on fracture development; Detection and prediction of subsurface natural-fracture occurrence and intensity from cores and well logs; Fractured rock properties affecting reservoir performance; Classification of naturally-fractured reservoirs with reservoir examples and potential production problems; Naturally-fractured reservoirs: fluid-flow, well performance and well testing, reservoir performance, numerical simulation; Geomechanics/fluid-flow; Behavior and stimulation of naturally-fractured reservoirs; Effects of natural fractures on reservoir permeability, anisotropy, drainage area, and waterflood sweep efficiency

Assistant Manager Exploration
I liked all aspects related to geologic aspects. Enough time was detailed to all subjects/topics.
Geologist Specialist III
I believe the overall content was well managed in terms of timing. It general it was well delivered. Natural inacline prediction and understanding in terms of geology was more interested.
Reservoir Engineer
Real life cases and the issues found and solved.
