Geophysics for Petroleum Engineers

Geophysics for Petroleum Engineers focuses on the applications of geophysics in addressing petroleum engineering problems. It explores the complementary features of geophysical techniques in better understanding, characterizing, producing and monitoring reservoirs. This book introduces engineers to geophysical methods so that they can communicate with geophysicist colleagues and appreciate the benefits of their work. These chapters describe fundamentals of geophysical techniques, their physical bases, their applications and limitations, as well as possible pitfalls in their misuse. Case study examples illustrate the integration of geophysical data with various other data types for predicting and describing reservoir rocks and fluid properties. The examples come from all over the world, with several case histories from the fields in the Middle East. Introduces geophysical methods to engineers Helps understanding, characterizing, producing and monitoring of geophysical techniques Updates the changing needs of reservoir engineering

Geophysical techniques apply the principles of physics for study of physical responses of rocks under passive or active perturbation. Geophysical data acquisition, processing and interpretation are driven by established scientific principles. Data from geophysical tools provide coverage with spatially continuous high density measurements. Well data like cores and well logs provide vertically high resolution measurements at the well location, however, the distribution of wells is sparse and discontinuous. The detailed spatial coverage from geophysical data are calibrated with analysis of

Geophysical methods are being applied that are specifically relevant to the exploration of and production from unconventional reservoirs. While many of the techniques have common applications for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs, there are also some significant differences in focus. Much of the unconventional reservoirs are from shale formations. Characterizing of fracture system in such reservoirs is of prime importance not only to identify the “sweet spots” for well placement but also for optimum drilling and production from such fractured

The process of drilling an oil or gas well requires knowledge of all geologic features expected to be encountered along the way—from the surface of the ground to the target reservoir. Thus, in addition to steering the well so as to intersect hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs, the reservoir engineer must assure to a reasonable degree of confidence that the well drills successfully and safely to the target. Geophysical measurements help ensure a successful drilling program. 3D seismic provides a picture of

Accurate reservoir characterization is a key step in developing, monitoring, and managing a reservoir and optimizing production. To achieve accuracy and to ensure that all the information available at any given time is incorporated in the reservoirmodel, reservoir characterizationmust be dynamic. To achieve this goal, however, one starts with a simple model of the reservoir at a given time point (a static model). As new petrophysical, seismic, and production data become available, the reservoir model is updated to account for

Origin of petroleum begins with the formation of organic matter, burial of organic matter in a basin maturation of the organic content with pressure temperature at burial depths. Petroleum system includes source rocks, reservoir rocks, reservoir traps, migration paths, seals etc. Hydrocarbons mature in source rocks migrate into reservoirs. Reservoir rocks are containers of hydrocarbons with sufficient interconnected pore spaces, these are sedimentary rocks clastic (sandstone shale), carbonate rocks. Migration pathways for matured hydrocarbons- migration is in separate phases from

Monitoring or surveillance of reservoir fluids during the producing life of a field and mapping of oil–water and gas–oil interface are necessary for understanding the fluid dynamics. This information would allow improving developmental plans, locate production and injection wells, and optimize reservoir management. Engineers would like to have information between the well control for field-wide surveillance of fluid front. This would permit forecasting arrival of water in a producing well or understanding the effectiveness of sweep from the

In most oil exploration and production problems, we deal with limited and incomplete data. We are constantly trying to extrapolate information from sparse measurements, for example, sparse well data and limited core measurements on the one hand and large volumes of seismic data with limited spatial resolution on the other hand. We resort to statistical methods to accomplish the data extrapolation and the integration of diverse data sets in constructing a coherent and meaningful model of the subsurface. Traditional statistical

Petrophysical analysis of well logs and cores provide information about formation rocks and fluids in the borehole. Various types of well logs measure different properties in the well. Analysis of the data determines the volume of hydrocarbons present in a reservoir, and its potential to flow through the reservoir rock into the wellbore. This helps us to understand and optimize the producibility of a reservoir. When oil and gas wells are drilled, physical property measurements are taken using specialized geophysical

Reservoir characterization as a discipline grew out of the recognition that more oil and gas could be extracted from reservoirs if the geology of the reservoir was understood. Prior to that awakening, reservoir development and production were the realm of the petroleum engineer. In fact, geologists of that time would have felt slighted if asked by corporate management to move from an exciting exploration assignment to a more mundane assignment working with an engineer to improve a reservoir’s performance.

Written primarily to provide petroleum engineers with a systematic analytical approach to the solution of fluid flow problems, this book will nevertheless be of interest to geologists, hydrologists, mining-, mechanical-, or civil engineers. It provides the knowledge necessary for petroleum engineers to develop design methods for drilling, production, transport of oil and gas. Basic mechanical laws are applied for perfect fluid flow, Newtonian fluid, non-Newtonian fluid, and multiple phase flows. Elements of gas dynamics, a non-familiar treatment of shock waves,
