About this book

One principal need in petroleum recovery from carbonate reservoirs is the description of the three-dimensional distribution of petrophysical properties in order to improve performance predictions by means of fluid-flow computer simulations. The book focuses on a rock based approach for the integration of geological, petrophysical, and geostatistical methods to construct a reservoir model suitable to input into flow simulation programs. This second edition includes a new chapter on model construction and new examples of limestone, dolostone, and touching-vug reservoir models as well as improved chapters on basic petrophysical properties, rock-fabric/petrophysical relationships, calibration of wireline logs, and sequence stratigraphy.

About the authors

Jerry Lucia has spent 50 years researching and developing carbonate reservoirs, first for the Shell Oil Company and now with the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas in Austin. He has a long history of working in integrated teams of geologists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, and geophysicists. During that time he has been instrumental in developing a rock-based approach to carbonate reservoir characterization. That approach is the subject of this book.
