Carbonate Reservoir Properties Atlas

A Carbonate Reservoir Properties Atlas has been developed showing the relationship between pore types and different reservoir parameters (including porosity, permeability, porosity cut-off, effective porosity, capillary pressures, water saturation and HC contacts). Reservoir parameters can be predicted based on empirical relationships derived from a large global database. These parameters are critical for volume estimation and hydrocarbon flow properties.

The atlas is intended for use during the exploration, field evaluation and field development phases. It opens up for a new way of doing reservoir characterization and modeling.
