Reservoir engineering project (Geoscience II project)
Detailed modelling of the geometry andthe properties of sub-surface reservoirswere undertaken as a means of improv-ingthe efficiency of oil and gas pro-duction.This involved the generationof quantitative data on the distribu-tionof relevant rock properties; studyof the interaction between rock propertiesand fluid flow; the scaling up ofsmall-scale variability; and the utili-sationof production history in formalmethods to improve the accuracy ofreservoir description. A significant con-tributionwas made towards techniquesfor achieving more effective economicextraction from hydrocarbon reserves,and many of the models developed arebeing applied commercially by the part-ners.
