Surface-based reservoir modelling: Generating realistic geological heterogeneity for reservoir modelling and simulation
Authors: Carl Jacquemyn, Matthew D. Jackson, Gary J. Hampson
Presented as a poster at Geological Society of London conference on: Capturing Geoscience in Geomodels.
Animations and posters are not very compatible, so we have assembled the animations here.
Figure 1. Example of a surface-based reservoir model of alternating high and low permeability strata, displaced by a conjugate set of normal faults. It shows the initial tetrahedral mesh before simulation. Simulation of a waterflooding experiment across the model. The tetrahedral mesh is adapted during simulation to focus computational effort where needed.
Figure 6. Example of surface-based reservoir model representing an upper Brent Group sequence, comprised of channelised fluvial deposits overlain by 2 parasequences of prograding shoreface clinoforms.
Figure 7. Example of surface-based reservoir model representing a meandering channel. Lateral accretion deposits are shown alternating in grey and yellow and oxbow lake deposits (dark grey). The cross section of the final channel volume (white) shows curvature-dependent asymmetry
