Document Forward Plan

Integrated Reservoir Modeling is carried out to better understand and characterize uncertainties in reservoir and well behaviour. It is used to make predictions for use in hydrocarbon development planning (field development planning) and well & reservoir surveillance and optimisation. This process should be seen in the context of a business plan for a new or producing asset in which a business focus will be maintained by addressing specifically those aspects having the biggest impact or influence on the business decisions being addressed. This course therefore, explicitly cover those aspects of a study in which the business context has a strong or dominating influence e.g. framing of the project, model design, economic screening and the selection of preferred development scenarios.

This course deals with main elements of the IRM process which are:
• Taking an integrated approach to model building to ensure the appropriate technical & business integrity and fastest cycle-time of modelling effort
• Framing and structuring the project to align with and optimise business opportunities
• Understanding data, validity of data, and data limitations
• Identifying key risks and uncertainties
• Constructing first pass reservoir models to validate the dataset, to provide an early evaluation of the business opportunities and their associated risks and to provide a focus for detailed modelling
• Constructing detailed reservoir models to be used for making business opportunity decisions
