Scope of Work for the Rock Type and Saturation Height Function Modeling          


Rock Type Model (RT) is a link between qualitative and quantitative characteristics of geological, petrophysical and dynamic reservoir properties. Saturation Height Function Model (SHFM) is an approach for modeling various saturation profiles according to the reservoir fluid types, identified log & core saturation. structural region (Free Water Level) by sedimentological or diagenetic class utillztng core analysis data, and rock typing model in order to mitigate saturation uncertainties. These models are generally known to help building valid static property models and dynamic model initiation for the heterogeneous carbonate reservoirs in Abu Dhabi Fields.

Company would like to validate existing Thamama Zone A, B & F Reservoir Rock Type Model and Saturation Height Function Model and their workflows for all the wells in the Haliba Field in order to be used for the current reservoir modeling and simulation updates in the part of the upcoming Haliba Field Development Planning.

All input data by logging operation and core analysis will be reviewed as the first step, and existing rock type model and Saturation model will be validated and updated/or rebuilt if any required. And properly determined and propagated of reservoir rock type classes, and established saturation height function model with respect to the rock types are main deliverables to utilize the input data for the static and dynamic modeling update.


This study is to construct the Rock Type Model and Saturation Height Function Model, and build their workflows with all available wells in the Haliba Field.
