Two challenges in a highly heterogeneous braided fluvial reservoir: saturation modelling in the transition zone and dynamic calibration

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Braided fluvial reservoirs are very heterogeneous (Coefficient of Variation greater than 1) with heterogeneity occurring at various scales (Corbett, 2012). High net-gross systems are interbedded and intercalated channel sands, overbank deposits, floodplain shales, soils, etc. Plant activity in warm arid climates also results in complicated diagenetic elements which can be present as primary characteristics of the sandstones (calcretes) or reworked as lag deposits in channel sandstones where they can be cemented. How might these characteristics affect the oil in place and the dynamic aspects of reservoir characterisation?
