Authors of Reservoir Model Design guidebook
Two senior AGR and Statoil geoscientists have partnered to launch a book that argues the case for a revised approach to reservoir modelling.
The book “Reservoir Model Design: A Practitioners Guide”, takes a geologist’s approach to modelling and is the culmination of decades of research and experience from two of the industry’s most highly regarded practitioners within reservoir modelling and risk management.
The book’s central contention is that problems with modelling do not stem from hardware limitations or lack of software skills but with the model design itself.
The text studies a range of techniques and seeks to dispel the myths associated with modelling, and the heightened expectations that the rise in the number of software packages and associated geostatistical methods have brought.
The book is co-authored by Mark Bentley, Director of AGR’s TRACS Training Division and Philip Ringrose, Geoscience Specialist at Statoil and Adjunct Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
