Permeability Modeling in Carbonate Reservoirs

3D Permeability Modeling in Carbonate Reservoirs

Structure and property models with well logs and flowback tracer towers. Note the rock heterogeneity in the top layer that’s common in carbonate reservoirs. Data courtesy of Rocky Mountain Oilfield Technology Center and USDOE. Carbonate reservoirs are the source of some of the world’s largest oil and gas reserves. These reservoirs are mostly known for…

maximize reservoir recovery

Maximize Reservoir Recovery by Integrating Diverse Datasets

Data integration is key in maximizing production while keeping costs to a minimum. CoViz 4D enhances production by integrating all available oilfield data into a single application. Over the past few decades, global energy consumption has increased dramatically. This has triggered an incremental demand for oil and gas. Experts predict that hydrocarbons may remain the…

well log analysis

Enhancing Well Log Analysis Through Data Visualization

For a detailed understanding of reservoir characteristics, the acquisition and analysis of well log data are essential. The data obtained during the logging process provides an overview of the geoscientific property of the subsurface which can be used to identify the potential pay zones in the reservoir. From exploration to completion, the oil and gas…

visualizing open hole data

Visualizing Open Hole Data for Multi-Disciplinary Teams

Understanding formation integrity and reservoir conditions are critical for success with open hole completions. CoViz 4D visualizations such as this can help.  With the proper instrumentation, a wide range of logging data can be acquired during and after the drilling process. Open hole data acquired before casing the wellbore is generally used by production engineers…

geothermal exploration data

Visualizing 3D Geothermal Exploration Data

The exploration of geothermal resources in the subsurface is challenging yet vital in the energy industry. There is huge potential in this largely untapped yet highly sustainable energy source. But there is also a great economic risk attached to it, starting at the early stage of its development. A successful geothermal exploration phase can influence…

enhanced recovery in carbonate reservoirs

Visualizing Enhanced Oil Recovery in Carbonate Reservoirs

Carbonate reservoirs contain a majority of the world’s petroleum reserves, and they are one of the more challenging geologic formations to characterize. Within these reservoirs, porosity and permeability can be highly complex and vary widely with little spatial correlation. Initial and secondary porosities can range from low porosity intergranular/inter-crystalline primary to cavernous karst secondary (very…
