Requiring vast amounts of detailed petrophysics information, the traditional costs of gathering data for reservoir modelling and forecasting are significant. Digital Petrophysics Characterisation (also Digital Rock Physics/Analysis) has been a technology breakthrough for Oil and Gas. Compared to methods using approximate rock physics models, digital petrophysics characterisation allows information to be obtained from realistic rock images in a fraction of the cost and time. This digital method also works with rock materials not generally suitable for lab testing. However, the technology behind the method is still complex, costly and typically limited to specialists. With the help of Simpleware software, Repsol have been able to simplify these digital petrophysics workflows.

Join this webinar to discover how Repsol’s method is producing meaningful inputs for rock typing and reservoir characterisation with the highest cost-value solution available. The method also creates the possibility of non-expert personnel carrying out analysis at fractions of conventional times.

Workflow Presented

A conventional siliciclastic asset was selected to design and perform the presented methodology. The protocol is divided into 3 stages resembling standard geophysical prospecting surveys:

  • Imaging: Data Acquisition from X-Ray Micro-Tomography
  • Processing: Image enhancement, solid and pore phase separation (segmentation), meshed pore space representation
  • Characterisation: Pore space morphometric analysis and interpretation and absolute permeability numerical simulation by Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

The work was conducted in two phases: 1) Pilot test for standard laboratory comparison and 2) Full workflow performance on field samples

Presenter

Carlos A. Santos M. is the Senior Rock Physics Technologist at the Repsol Technology Center, Spain. He leads the development and implementation of innovative analytical methods in digital petrophysics, including R&D and supervision of micro-CT and CT scanning activities, and reconstruction, processing, segmentation and pore network modelling of digital rock datasets. He also works on integrating mineral maps with tomographic datasets, and rock property prediction based on SEM and 3DS 2D models. His performance of rock physics diagnostic and modelling provides input to a multidisciplinary team involved in earth model building.
