A prime goal of reservoir characterization is to construct three-dimensional models of petrophysical properties that can be used as input into reservoir and basin modelling software. The fundamental link between geological well descriptions and reservoir models is the relationship between petrophysical properties and rock fabrics. One-dimensional core and well data have to be combined with a 3D geometric framework to expand petrophysical data to field and basin scale. Depending on the type of reservoir, the three-dimensional distribution of petrophysical properties within this framework depends on diagenetic and depositional parameters. Prediction of these parameters is in the focus and at the same time a major challenge in current finite element forward modelling.
We are looking for contributions dealing with geological, geophysical and petrophysical aspects of reservoir characterization in carbonate and siliciclastic reservoirs and their integration in numerical modelling.
