This post is about an interesting example of how the capillary pressure data integrated with other information helped to understand the compartmentalization of a carbonate field that was under water injection. One of the potential problems affecting the efficiency of water injection techniques is the areal variation of the rock quality. In this case study, View
I like to believe that depending on the specific needs and goals, each reservoir needs a customized characterization workflow. In the case presented in this post, the goal was to understand the reasons behind the high water production in 3 recent drilled wells:   Well 1: Decent initial hydrocarbons production followed by lots of water. View
Introduction One of the big challenges in building static and dynamic models for simulation in naturally fractured and vuggy carbonates is the porosity partitioning (matrix and secondary porosity). This post describes different secondary porosity calculation methods applied to one specific field, using all the available data from micro to macro-scale (thin section petrography, electrical images, View
This quick analysis is related to an offshore field located in the Gulf of Mexico. The main reservoirs are made up of Tertiary arkosic sandstones found at a depth varying from 1300 to 2800 meters (4264 to 9184 feet). The field was discovered in a study performed on a seismic anomaly classified as a flat View
