The course demonstrates the sequence of events that leads from defining and drilling the exploration prospect, into appraisal and then through the producing life of the field. It outlines the calculation of prospect volumetrics and introduces concepts of risk, uncertainty and economic indicators. Following declaration of a discovery, it covers geological modelling during the appraisal period, and emphasises the multi-disciplinary nature of the decision-making processes. Treatment of the producing period includes concepts of reservoir modelling, simulation, history matching and reserves determination.
The course is designed for
- Drilling engineers
- Reservoir engineers
- The value chain: exploration, appraisal, development, production, abandonment
- Components of a petroleum accumulation: source rock, reservoir, seal, trap, maturation, migration pathway and timing
- Exploration methods: gravimetry and FTG; magnetometric surveying; seismic surveying; drilling wells
- The petroleum system: the source kitchen; migration pathways; reservoirs
- The petroleum play: source, reservoir and seal. Common segment risk mapping
- Leads and prospects
- Volumetrics: in-place and recoverable
- Risk, uncertainty and probability. Monte Carlo analysis
- Economic indicators: NPV, ROR, EMV
- Selecting the best wildcat well location
- Designing the wildcat well analytical programme: wellsite geology, mud logging, biostratigraphy, geochemistry, petrophysical logging, coring, testing
- Analysing and integrating data provided by the wildcat well analytical programme
- Declaration of a discovery
- The appraisal programme: appraisal well locations and analytical programmes; 3-D seismic
- The static model: lithofacies, macroforms, log correlation, object modelling, reservoir architecture, layering
- The dynamic model: geocellular modelling, test results, production profiles, simulation, history matching
- Assessing uncertainty of resource and reserves
- Declaration of commerciality
