Petrophysics Meets Well Testing

Formation evaluation (including well logging and core analysis) and well testing are established, highly specialized disciplines of the reservoir characterization process that strongly rely on the interpreted results of each other. Despite recent significant advances in these disciplines, the communications among their experts have been limited. This forum will provide a unique environment for the practitioners of these disciplines to interact with each other, highlight unresolved issues, address integration problems, and investigate how they may be better solved in the future.

SPE Forums: Innovative Thought and Accelerated Results

SPE Forums offer an exclusive opportunity to discuss complex industry challenges with top technologists, innovators, and managers. The forums' limited size and intensive format maximize the opportunity to contribute. The objective is to stimulate thought, accelerate innovation, and inspire the development of new technology. To create a cohesive group in which discussion is free flowing, only committee-selected applicants are invited to attend. Participants are encouraged to come prepared to contribute their experience and knowledge, not to be spectators or students. If you have a role to play in meeting the challenges of tomorrow head-on, apply today. Participants will be selected based on their ability to contribute to the discussion and to represent their stakeholder group.

How Participation Benefits You--and Your Organization

· Learn in days what would usually take months--even years--of research to learn. · Effectively focus on a topic that directly relates to your work. · Gain insight and perspective through conversations with peers who share your same interests. · Meet with other experts from international companies, research institutes, and universities in an off-the-record format. · Form professional relationships that will continue after the forum has ended.

Petrophysics Meets Well Testing

These exciting topics will be discussed in an open setting designed for optimal input from all participants.

How Do We Use Petrophysics? How Do We Use Well Testing?

Session Manager: Session Comanager: Roland Horne Robert Pahmiyer

Uncertainty and Value of Reservoir Information

Session Manager: Session Comanager: Robert Hutchinson Calvin Kessler

What makes well testing and petrophysics disciplines unique? · How is data and information collected? · How are they used? · What value do they provide?

Discussion topics include the following: · What reservoir information is needed? · What is the cost versus the value of the information? · How is the information obtained? · How can uncertainties be reduced?

New Trends: Will Future Unification Be Like Mixing Water and Oil?

Session Manager: Session Comanager: David Allen Charles Fensky

Data Reconciliation and Integration

Session Manager: Session Comanager: Jeff Hawkins Roger McGuire

Discuss new or developing trends to more effectively characterize and understand reservoirs. · How can petrophysics develop and complement testing? · How can testing develop to complement petrophysics? · Can we meld petrophysics and testing to achieve the necessary reservoir understanding? Breakout session: Trends: Where are we? Where do we want to be? What do we need to get there?

Petrophysics measures important parameters like porosity and permeability on the well scale with a limited depth of investigation. Well testing can measure these parameters on the interwell scale. Petrophysics can provide an estimate of these properties with a resolution of inches, while well testing will measure for the entire flow unit. · Can these data sets be reconciled and integrated in some large inverse problem (along with production history if available) to provide a better reservoir model for future studies? · What can we do to integrate the data better?

Application Information

Participants at SPE Forums are selected by a steering committee on the basis of ability to contribute to the discussion of the topic. You can apply via the web, mail, or fax. You must apply by 19 April 2010 to be considered. Online: Mail: SPE FORUM SERIES, PO Box 833836, Richardson, TX 75083-3836 USA Fax: +1.972.852.9292 An electronic version of the printed application form is available for downloading and printing at You may also contact SPE at +1.972.952.9393 or [email protected] to receive a printed registration form via mail, fax, or email. Please obtain appropriate approvals from your supervisor BEFORE applying to the forum. Include enough information about your experience and knowledge to enable the steering committee to evaluate your potential contribution to the forum.

Real-Time Information

Session Manager: Session Comanager: Vinay Mishra Margaret Waid

Reservoir fluid characterization and sampling are two of the most important aspects of well testing. This session will discuss currently available advanced technologies as well as new ideas related to: · Advancements in technologies · Visualization such as wireline and logging · Pressure transient analysis · Permanent installations while drilling (LWD) formation testers, and sampling while · Fiber optics testing · Scaling · Real-time fluid identification · Layering · Determination of in situ properties

understanding permeability is essential to all models in all types of reservoirs, this session will focus on: · Understanding the current state of the art both in determining petrophysical and well test permeabilities and integrating those values into predictions · Exploring future methods of estimating permeability and integrating those methods into more accurate predictions

Evaluating Hydraulic Fractures in Unconventional Reservoirs

Session Manager: Session Comanager: Mark Proett Shi-Yi Zheng

Most unconventional reservoirs such as tight gas, shale gas, and coalbed methane (CBM) reservoirs are hard to characterize using both petrophysical and well testing measurements. This session will clarify how the industry determines postfracturing formation evaluation for these unconventional reservoirs, through both petrophysical and well testing analysis. From this basis, the resulting data analysis, integration, and future challenges can be mapped out through further discussions.

Reservoir Monitoring

Session Manager: Session Comanager: David Chorneyko Richard Straub

Investigate issues involved in analyzing data and how separate measurements can be brought together for a unified interpretation, keeping in mind that: · Information gathered during production is critical for optimizing performance and recovery. · The industry is in a transition from one-time measurements for reservoir monitoring such as cased-hole logs, production logs, and buildup tests to continuous downhole sensors that measure pressure, temperature, resistivity, and microseismic response. · Challenges for petrophysicists and well test engineers are the transition from the low- to high- resolution measurements and the integration of all the new data.

Data Collection in the Future Team Presentations

Session Manager: Session Comanager: Robert Pahmiyer Roland Horne

Permeability and Productivity in Conventional Reservoirs

Session Manager: Session Comanager: Robert Hite Robert Engelman

Three teams, each with a team leader, will be assigned in the earlier sessions. Each team will develop a Petrophysical and Well Test Data Acquisition Plan for a given greenfield development over the course of the Forum. The teams will discuss the plan and the value of their plan, based on one of the following time frames: · Team 1--Today · Team 2--Short term (5­7 years from today) · Team 3--Long term (10­20 years from today) Each team will be given 30 to 45 minutes to present its plan.

For conventional reservoirs, both sandstones and carbonates, permeability is a main determiner of productivity and an area of overlap between petrophysics and well testing. Because
