The accurate prediction of reservoir quality is, and will continue to be, a key challenge for hydrocarbon exploration and development. This volume compiles worldwide case studies covering some predictive aspects of both siliciclastic and carbonate reservoir characteristics. The editors focused on the variability due to diagenetic effects in sandstones and carbonates, rather than on sedimentological effects, i.e., the presence or absence of a given reservoir.

Linking Diagenesis to Sequence Stratigraphy (Special Publication 45 of the IAS)

Category: Science

Sequence stratigraphy is a powerful tool for the prediction of depositional porosity and permeability, but does not account for the impact of diagenesis on these reservoir parameters. Therefore, integrating diagenesis and sequence stratigraphy can provide a better way of predicting reservoir quality. This special publication consists of 19 papers (reviews and case studies) exploring different aspects of the integration of diagenesis and sequence stratigraphy in carbonate, siliciclastic, and mixed carbonate-siliciclastic successions from various geological settings. This book will be of interest to sedimentary petrologists aiming to understand the distribution of diagenesis in siliciclastic and carbonate successions, to sequence stratigraphers who can use diagenetic features to recognize and verify interpreted key stratigraphic surfaces, and to petroleum geologists who wish to develop more realistic conceptual models for the spatial and temporal distribution of reservoir quality. This book is part of the International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS) Special Publications. The Special Publications from the IAS are a set of thematic volumes edited by specialists on subjects of central interest to sedimentologists. Papers are reviewed and printed to the same high standards as those published in the journal Sedimentology and several of these volumes have become standard works of reference.

Reservoir quality is studied using a wide range of similar techniques in both sandstones and carbonates. Sandstone and carbonate reservoir quality both benefit from the study of modern analogues and experiments, but modelling approaches are currently quite different for these two types of reservoirs. There are many common controls on sandstone and carbonate reservoir quality, but also distinct differences due primarily to mineralogy. Numerous controversies remain including the question of oil inhibition, the key control on pressure solution and geochemical flux of material to or from reservoirs. This collection of papers contains case-study-based examples of sandstone and carbonate reservoir quality prediction as well as modern analogue, outcrop analogue, modelling and advanced analytical approaches.

This volume highlights key challenges for fluid-flow prediction in carbonate reservoirs, the approaches currently employed to address these challenges and developments in fundamental science and technology. The papers span methods and case studies that highlight workflows and emerging technologies in the fields of geology, geophysics, petrophysics, reservoir modelling and computer science. Topics include: detailed pore-scale studies that explore fundamental processes and applications of imaging and flow modelling at the pore scale; case studies of diagenetic processes with complementary perspectives from reactive transport modelling; novel methods for rock typing; petrophysical studies that investigate the impact of diagenesis and fault-rock properties on acoustic signatures; mechanical modelling and seismic imaging of faults in carbonate rocks; modelling geological influences on seismic anisotropy; novel approaches to geological modelling; methods to represent key geological details in reservoir simulations and advances in computer visualization, analytics and interactions for geoscience and engineering.

Quartz is the major porosity-reducing cement in many sandstone sequences. Therefore, Quartz cements represent a key source of petrographic and geochemical information about diagenetic history. They are also the major determinant of sandstone reservoir quality. While the ultimate goal of research in this area is to make robust predictions about the amount and distribution of quartz cements in a wide variety of depositional and burial settings, there are nevertheless large areas of the subject that are poorly understood and remain the subject of controversy. The aim of this Volume, which is based partly on papers submitted to a 1996 workshop in Belfast, and partly on invited contributions, is to bring together some of the main strands of research into quartz cements and provide a focus for debate and direction for future research. This book will be welcomed by sedimentologists, petrographers and geochemists involved in sandstone digenesis, as well as by petroleum geologists seeking a deeper understanding of the factors influencing reservoir porosity and permeability. Contributors from 11 countries and 4 continents. Represents the benchmark in quartz cement research.

What makes this book so different and valuable to the engineer is the accompanying software, used by reservoir engineers all over the world every day. The new software, IFLO (replacing WINB4D, in previous editions), is a simulator that the engineer can easily install in a Windows operating environment. IFLO generates simulations of how the well can be tapped and feeds this to the engineer in dynamic 3D perspective. This completely new software is much more functional, with better graphics and more scenarios from which the engineer can generate simulations. BENEFIT TO THE READER: This book and software helps the reservoir engineer do his or her job on a daily basis, better, more economically, and more efficiently. Without simulations, the reservoir engineer would not be able to do his or her job at all, and the technology available in this product is far superior to most companies internal simulation software.-

This book was originally titled “Fundamentals of the New Artificial Intelligence: Beyond Traditional Paradigms.” I have changed the subtitle to better represent the contents of the book. The basic philosophy of the original version has been kept in the new edition. That is, the book covers the most essential and widely employed material in each area, particularly the material important for real-world applications. Our goal is not to cover every latest progress in the fields, nor to discuss every detail of various techniques that have been developed. New sections/subsections added in this edition are: Simulated Annealing (Section 3.7), Boltzmann Machines (Section 3.8) and Extended Fuzzy if-then Rules Tables (Sub-section 5.5.3). Also, numerous changes and typographical corrections have been made throughout the manuscript. The Preface to the first edition follows. General scope of the book Artificial intelligence (AI) as a field has undergone rapid growth in diversification and practicality. For the past few decades, the repertoire of AI techniques has evolved and expanded. Scores of newer fields have been added to the traditional symbolic AI. Symbolic AI covers areas such as knowledge-based systems, logical reasoning, symbolic machine learning, search techniques, and natural language processing. The newer fields include neural networks, genetic algorithms or evolutionary computing, fuzzy systems, rough set theory, and chaotic systems.
