Course summary

Overview

The Reservoir Geophysics group specialises in studies which integrate reservoir engineering and time-lapsed seismic data. Our particular focus is monitoring of producing hydrocarbon reservoirs undergoing primary, secondary and tertiary recovery. This involves quantitative 4D seismic interpretation, together with reservoir simulation and model update. A key driver is data donated from our sponsoring companies covering clastic, carbonate (chalk and hard-rock), and HPHT reservoirs with a range of IOR/EOR conditions.
