Building a geological model to integrate all the data, analysis and interpretation is the third phase of the work flow process. In one particular case, this might take the form of a predictive sedimentological model that reflects the range and architecture of the depositional system making up the reservoir and, from this, the distribution in time and space of reservoir properties such as porosity and permeability. In another case it could include integrating an understanding of the structural setting of the reservoir and the impact this has had on the distribution of reservoir properties.
Tigress™ allows us to consider the structural and lithological properties of the formation and facilitates construction of a realistic volumetric reservoir model even with incomplete data. The computer software often points to high potential areas and the need for additional developmental work.
