Practical Techniques of Geological Modelling: A Geostatistical Approach

Book now button

Course overview

The course starts with the presentation and discussion of the main steps of 3D static modelling workflow. 3D geometrical modelling is developed with emphasis on grid types and, eventually, log data integration is approached. Practical applications and the core functionality of basic geostatistical techniques (kriging, variogram, simulations) is introduced. The course is focused on the use of the most suitable geostatistical approaches in various depositional environments (Fluvial, Delta and Deep marine) regarding both facies and petrophysical modeling. The course closes with some insights of hydrocarbon volume calculation, risk analysis and grid optimization for dynamic simulation purposes.

The course is designed for

  • Geologists/Geophysicists
  • Reservoir Engineers

Learning objectives

  • To help geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers to gain a thorough understanding of the concepts and practical applications of structural geology for petroleum exploration
  • To prepare participants to recognize rocks structures from outcrops and from subsurface data-sets and interpret them into a geologically coherent picture
  • To train participants to be able to integrate different data-set at different scales
  • To prepare participants to analyze structural data-sets in order to extract information about tectonic history and kinematics
  • To train participants to extract data and information from geological maps
