Interests

 

Impact of geostatistics, reservoir modeling, heterogeneity, uncertainty, and human bias on reservoir performance forecasts, particularly for conventional oil and gas reservoirs and also on unconventional shale gas and shale oil.

 

Efficient incorporation of uncertainty in reservoir modeling, performance forecasting, and reservoir development decisions.

 

Interaction of reservoir rock and fluid with injected steam – impact of continuous injection and single vs. multiple cycle, cyclic steam stimulation (CSS) in non-clastic reservoirs.  Application of reactive transport modeling (RTM) to understand the mineralogical and fluid changes induced by the injected steam as well as the impact steam injection on porosity and permeability.  

 

Improved methods of accounting for historical production data uncertainty (e.g. allocation factors, low frequency well tests, “missing” data particularly for mature fields) particularly as it impacts decline curve-based assessments and dynamic model history matching.

 

Application of chemostratigraphy (core-based or cuttings-based) and stable isotopes as a reservoir characterization tool for carbonate reservoirs and for possible use as “sweet-spot” predictor (productivity and/or fracture susceptibility) for unconventional shale gas and shale oil plays.

 

Appropriate scale for characterization of permeability used in geostatistical reservoir models; particularly carbonate reservoirs where large permeability multipliers are typically needed during history matching.
