A Day in the Life of a Geoscientist: How to Properly Integrate Output from Various Disciplines into Geomodeling Projects

Thomas Jerome, Senior Geomodeler, will be our featured lecturer on February 8, 2018, as part of the Paradigm series, "A Day in the Life of a Geoscientist".  In this lecture, Mr. Jerome will discuss how to properly integrate output from other disciplines into geomodeling projects, and present useful examples.

Integrating petrophysical and engineering data for reservoir modelingA geomodel is a 3D representation of the reservoir which must respect the data, while also taking into account what each geoscientist and engineer has inferred about the reservoir based on that data. Unfortunately, the different interpretations rarely fit together like pieces in a puzzle.  To resolve this dilemma, the geomodeler must understand the gaps existing between different disciplines' workflows.

This presentation covers some of the problems faced by the author over the years, and presents ways to manage them.  The following topics will be covered:

  • How much importance should be given to hand-contoured maps?
  • What level of collaboration is needed with petrophysicists?
  • How should one manage flow simulation engineers' expectations?
  • Why is it that volumes computed from a 3D model are not always the ones used for reporting reserves and resources?
