Ensuring Reliable SCAL Data for Reservoir Modeling
Special core analysis (SCAL) data are among the most critical reservoir input data for reservoir simulation models. This 1-day course will cover the concepts of the different elements of SCAL data, including reservoir wettability capillary pressure, two and three phase relative permeability, reservoir electrical properties, and the way these data would possibly change as a function of the reservoir heterogeneity and wettability.
Other topics include
- Effect of reservoir saturation history and associated hysteresis of SCAL data
- Best practice of laboratory measurements of SCAL data as well as the interpretation of the experimental data considering the associated uncertainties
- Proper preparation and utilization of SCAL data for reservoir characterization and modeling, considering reservoir rock typing scheme and its wettability profile, if any
- Possible integration of SCAL data with log and well testing data
- The sensitivity of the prediction of the reservoir simulation models to the quality of SCAL data under different flooding conditions
Why You Should Attend
Learn how SCAL data can have a direct impact on the way fluids are allocated and distributed in the reservoir simulation models, the performance of secondary and EOR flooding processes, and accuracy of the oil and gas reserves estimates.
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for technical managers and team leaders, reservoir engineers, reservoir geologists, petrophysicists and geophysicists. This course is also designed for university and operating companies’ research and development staff.
