Course Description

Characterization is a significant part of developing, monitoring, and managing a reservoir and optimizing production. Explore characterization and evaluation methods that adapted from the petroleum industry can be used for the clean energy pathways (CEPs) subsurface evaluation. Different analyses may provide a more objective understanding of reservoir properties.

Learn how every method has its advantages and disadvantages, and how selective application of logging methods and data interpretation can deliver reasonable reservoir interpretation.

Course Details

By completion of this course, successful students will be able to:

  • Discuss the applicability of hydrocarbon industry training and skills to CEP evaluation
  • Describe and discuss how laboratory and well-log analysis methods can be used for CEP evaluation
  • Describe how rate-transient and pressure-transient analysis methods can be used to evaluate subsurface reservoir and hydraulic fracture properties for CEP evaluation
  • Discuss how drilling data analysis can complement log and core analysis
  • Provide some examples of how geochemical analysis of produced fluids can be used to constrain other subsurface characterization methods
