Heterogeneity and Anisotropy of Reservoir Rocks
Accurately modeling the heterogeneous and anisotropic nature of reservoir rocks is challenging. This includes understanding variations in porosity, permeability, and fluid saturation.
Data Integration and Interpretation
Integrating and interpreting diverse data types, including seismic, geological, and production data, to create a coherent model of the reservoir.
Scale-Up and Scale-Down Issues
Translating laboratory-scale data to field-scale models and vice versa can be problematic due to differences in scale and conditions.
Quantifying uncertainties in reservoir properties, boundary conditions, and future production performance is a significant challenge.
Fluid Flow Modeling
Accurately modeling multiphase fluid flow within the reservoir, considering factors like viscosity, density, and interfacial tension between fluids.
Thermal Recovery Processes
Modeling the complexities of thermal recovery processes, such as steam injection, which involve heat transfer and phase changes.
Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Techniques
Designing and optimizing EOR techniques, such as chemical flooding or gas injection, which require a deep understanding of fluid-rock interactions.
Identifying and modeling reservoir compartmentalization, which can significantly impact fluid flow and recovery strategies.
Pressure and Stress Changes
Understanding the impact of pressure and stress changes within the reservoir on rock properties and fluid flow, especially in the context of enhanced recovery or CO2 sequestration.
