The objectives: 1- To build more robust and logical depositional models that better represent the reservoir geometry and connectivity. In our opinion, we need to put more depositional-model concepts in the 3D static models because this will be crucial for better geometric characterization.
2- To understand the stratigraphic evolution based on variations in the depositional model. The stratigraphic framework will be very important to the propagation of petrophysical properties, as the stratigraphic surfaces are the best constraint for it.
3- To create a methodological approach to incorporate diagenesis. This item is in progress; some some preliminary observation and ideas are presented.
The expected results are related to optimization, risk and uncertainty reduction, especially in secondary recovery projects. The optimization, with quite a wide array of concepts, may be represented by a series of different activities and plans to increase the oil recovery (from drilling new wells to be more precise in determining the best interval to stimulate, for instance).
