In the initial stages of exploration, geologists may rely on only a few wells, or they might be lacking existing well information. As more wells and more data become available and development and production commence, geologists will have access to much more information and must take that into consideration, to gain a better understanding of the reservoir.
Production data provides a great deal of information about the behavior of geological models. This data is a real-time indicator that shows whether interpretations and geologic models comply with subsurface reality. In this presentation, we will demonstrate how Paradigm allows us to change modeling practices in order to enhance performance, increase recovery and assess geologic hot spots. Using this solution, we can efficiently perform an enlightened production data analysis that will serve as a quick indicator of reservoir performance, and enhance the accuracy of reservoir description and characterization. This results in a deeper understanding of the reservoir, with clear identification of compartmentalization and more knowledge about the depositional environment and fluid interaction.
