PetroWiki defines reservoir management as: …a dynamic process that recognizes the uncertainties in reservoir performance resulting from our inability to fully characterize reservoirs and flow processes. It seeks to mitigate the effects of these uncertainties by optimizing reservoir performance through a systematic application of integrated, multidisciplinary technologies. It approaches reservoir operation and control as a […]

Unlike the rest of the process industries where the inputs and outputs to the process are largely known, oil and gas production comes from unseen reservoirs. Reservoir models are built by geologists from numerous sources—log data, lab data, seismic data, outcrop data, etc. Emerson’s Tor Barkve, a Technical Product Manger in the Roxar Software Solutions […]

Most in the oil production business believe the era of easy oil discovery is over. Many of today’s oil & gas reservoirs are to be found in increasingly difficult locations with complex geologies. These locations include: Reservoirs with faults, which can break up communications between different layers within oil and gas reservoirs Reservoirs with complex […]
