Course description

The goal is for participants to develop subsurface skills for integrated analysis of rock, pore, and fluids and to solve problems associated with identifying and exploiting reserves. Experience gained will allow participants to apply tools for analysis of the underlying uncertainty and assumptions used in many reservoir analysis techniques. A subsurface integration process model is presented which provides a multidiscipline methodology for solving reservoir problems, from rock typing through flow unit characterization to reservoir modeling.
