Description

The Geological Modelling of Hydrocarbon Reservoirs and Outcrop Analogues is a collection of 15 selected papers taken from the Symposium of the same name which formed part of the IAS Congress of 1990 held in Nottingham, UK. Recent technological advances and the ever increasing demand for maximising recovery from existing oil and gas fields has led to an upsurge of interest, at both academic and industrial levels, in reservoir characterization and quantitative modelling of physical rock properties in 3-D inter-well space. Synthesizing both industrial and academic research and integrating sedimentology, petroleum geology, geostatistic and geomathematics, this volme is a state-of-the-art presentation of approaches to quantifying geology in order to give better input to 3-D numerical reservoir modelling methods. It is the first IAS volume to highlight the necessary interface with academic and oil industry geology by showing how academic research can significantly support the mathematical modelling work of reservoir engineers in industry and contributions to the volume come from an expert, international team comprised of university, government and international oil industry scientists.
