Integration of Geoscience Technologies

Session Chairpersons:

Joel Herve Le Calvez, Schlumberger; Carlos G Marquez, PDVSA

Sciences such as geology, geophysics, geochemistry, geomechanics, geodesy or petrophysics are concerned with the Earth. Each discipline in its own right has tremendous value to one’s understanding of the Earth, the subsurface and its inner workings. However, integration is both important and necessary not only because of the increasing use of the subsurface but also because if each discipline provides individual insights, their integration increases the reliability of characterization and prediction of reservoir behavior and long-term production. This session intends to showcase the value of integrated approaches by highlighting recent progresses made in various geo-centered domains.

Naturally-Fractured Reservoirs

Session Chairperson:

Sezai Ucan, YPF SA

Naturally-Fractured Reservoirs can be seen as a blessing or a curse. Natural fractures usually enhance the reservoir porosity and permeability but they also dramatically increase its heterogeneity, leading to significant challenges in characterization, drilling, completions and reservoir management. This session gathers presentations investigating several aspects of these complex reservoirs.
