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

GET THIS BOOKStratigraphic reservoir characterization for petroleum geologists, geophysicists, and engineers

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.

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

"With the increased resolution power of many geophysical methods, we are seeing direct evidence of seeps on a wide variety of data, including conventional seismic. New methods and technology have also evolved to better measure and detect seeps and their artifacts and reservoir charge and to map migration and remigration routes. In addition, detection of seepage is important for minimizing the risks associated with shallow gas drilling hazards, ensuring platform stability, and preventing well blow-outs.
