When building petroleum systems models, geoscientist may have the following common questions:
- How does source rock quality impact the volume and composition of the charge?
- Is the timing versus trap formation right?
- Do I have a seal that is capable of holding a commercial column height of hydrocarbons?
- Do the modeling results represent the range of possible values of the variables?
- How do I need to change my model input to fit my calibration data?
In this five-day engagement, Schlumberger experts work with small teams to demonstrate how they can:
- Quantify the impact of variability in petroleum systems and better understand the exploration potential
- Focus new data acquisition and further studies on the most important petroleum system elements
- Understand dependencies and correlations between geological processes and model uncertainties and calculate probabilities of occurrences of results
- Calculate the probability of how well a model fits the calibration data and find the set of input data with the highest probability
Participants will learn how to effectively build workflows that not only assess geological uncertainty, but also follow the entire migration path to provide probabilistic estimates for accumulations.
