A Day in the Life of a Geoscientist: The Role of Porosity in Permeability Prediction and Modeling Deterministic Models and Data Mining

Posted by Samhita Shah on Feb 19, 2019 2:05:46 PM RSS Share Post

Articles that state the difficulty of establishing an accurate and reliable relationship between porosity and permeability, in order to create a continuous permeability profile in wells, abound in the Petrophysical literature devoted to carbonate reservoirs. To try and alleviate this difficulty, new numerical methods or data mining techniques are often proposed. However, despite the necessity of interpreting data in terms of causation, those papers hardly discuss and explore, and even less so, explain, the origins of this difficulty. Therefore, questioning the ways in which these techniques are used is as legitimate as examining if they are really effective.

Paradigm 17: What's New?

Posted by Samhita Shah on Jan 5, 2017 1:31:18 PM RSS Share Post

Paradigm Subject Matter Expert, Dr. Bruno de Ribet will be previewing Paradigm 17 during a lunch and learn session and via Webinar on January 17 and 18. Paradigm 17 is Paradigm's latest comprehensive solution suite scheduled to be released in Q1 of 2017. This release is designed to improve asset team productivity and effectiveness, and enable superior decision-making by representing all available data in integrated workflows.

The presentation will provide an overview of the major improvements and new functionalities in Paradigm 17. These include advances in 2D imaging, new tomography workflows, a new methodology for rock type classification, a new volume fusion tool in VoxelGeo, Multimin Monte Carlo uncertainty analysis and a new 3D petrophysics functionality in Geolog, and much more. The presentation will also highlight the new Paradigm Integrated Canvas, which simplifies and streamlines key workflows; the Epos integrated enterprise G&G database; and extended third-party connectivity, making it easier than ever to access your data, wherever it is located.

PDVSA INTEVEP Uses Paradigm Geolog for Electrofacies Modeling in a Carbonate Field in Venezuela

Posted by Samhita Shah on May 18, 2016 10:59:12 AM RSS Share Post

PDVSA INTEVEP undertook a study in a carbonate area located in a gas and condensate reservoir offshore Venezuela, where the main challenge was related to the high heterogeneity of the rock fabric. The geoscientists needed to understand how the pore system pattern reflects good porosities throughout the limestone while having significant permeability variations.  The data was collected from wells with cores, as variations in the petrophysical properties are much harder to predict in wells without core data.  The main objective was to apply a clustering approach in order to build electrofacies models and integrate them with sedimentological interpretations by extrapolating those models to wells without core data.
