Abstract

Summary

Conventional geostatistical modelling methods are unable to reproduce the low connectivity typical of deep marine turbidite reservoirs at high net:gross ratios, because the connectivity of these geomodels is inevitably controlled by their net:gross ratio. Previous studies have developed modelling methods that can honour independently both the low connectivity and high net:gross ratios of these systems at different hierarchical scales, however they are unable to honour available well data. We present a new workflow for building reservoir geomodels conditioned to well data, with realistic levels of sand connectivity and hierarchical stacking.
