Abstract

We have developed an interactive and integrated software that simulates lithology and reservoir parameter variations in 2D at high resolution and scales them up to a scale suitable for conventional reservoir simulators. The modelling is carried out in three successive steps: high resolution (HR) lithological description of the reservoir with a geostatistical variogram-based method; HR porosity and permeability description; and scaling up HR posrosity and permeability in order to produce a grid suitable for fluid flow prediction with conventional reservoir models. This software has been used to model lithofacies and porosity/permeability variations of the fluvio-deltaic Yorkshire Middle Jurassic, an equivalent to the Brent Group in the North Sea. -from Authors
