Project Outline

Reservoir quality is usually very variable due to their high degree of heterogeneity. Most of these heterogeneities are below conventional seismic resolution but may have a major impact on fluid behaviour during production. As a result, exploration and development involves high costs and high risk and developing a comprehensive understanding of the role played by all the structural and stratigraphic key features encountered in a reservoir is critical to mitigating this risk. One method to more accurately interpret and predict the architecture of reservoir heterogeneities of subsurface fields is through an integrated approach to the characterisation of appropriate outcrop analogues.
