About this book

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the parameters and factors that cause heterogeneity in carbonate reservoirs, and examines how they interact with one another. It explores the various scales of heterogeneity, how they are caused, and how they can be minimized, as well as how the scales affect each other, providing practical examples in each chapter. The book concludes by discussing the effect of heterogeneity on petrophysical evaluations.

As reducing heterogeneity is the only way to obtain accurate carbonate reservoir characteristics at the regional scale, the book offers an important reference guide for all geologists, engineers, and modelers working with subsurface data. 

About the authors

Dr Vahid Tavakoli is an Associate Professor at the University of Tehran, where he received his Ph.D. in Petroleum Geology in 2011. He has been a member of the Faculty of Petroleum Geology since 2012 and has been working on reservoir characterization of the Iranian hydrocarbon formations since 2003. His research interests focus on reservoir characterization using cores and wireline log data. He also has published more than 50 research papers on reservoir characterization, sequence stratigraphy, and log analysis. He is the author of the book Geological core analysis: application to reservoir characterization, published by Springer in 2018, and a chapter of Chemostratigraphy: Concepts, Techniques and Applications, published by Elsevier. He is the project manager and geology team leader of several reservoir evaluation projects, from coring to development planning. The Swedish Research Council awarded him and his team ca. 100,000 euros for the study of Holocene cores in central and east Iran. Vahid was selected as the first-ranked young geology researcher in the country and received the Young Geologist Award from the Iranian Academy of Sciences in 2018. He has also supervised several industrial projects at private oil service companies. He is currently investigating the causes and consequences of carbonate reservoir heterogeneity.
