What's the process of making Reservoir Characterization
Reservoir characterization is the process of preparing a quantitative representation of a reservoir using data from a variety of sources and disciplines. Kelkar [2000, pg. 25] has defined reservoir characterization as the “process of integrating various qualities and quantities of data in a consistent manner to describe reservoir properties of interest at inter-well locations.” All of the information collected at various scales in the reservoir characterization process must be integrated into a single, comprehensive, and consistent representation of the reservoir. This chapter describes two fundamental topics in reservoir characterization: flow unit characterization and reservoir mapping.
