In the world of subsurface engineering, the quest for maximum production efficiency is a shared endeavour between geoscientists and reservoir engineers (plus others in the petroleum engineering realm). This final blog of the series explores the strategies that enhance subsurface understanding, enabling optimisation of oilfield production through the combined expertise of the subsurface workforce.
This blog uncovers how reservoir engineering analysis drives adaptations to geoscientific models, showcasing real-world examples of the interplay between engineering and geoscientific insights.
In the dynamic world of subsurface engineering, the synergy between geoscientists and reservoir engineers is nothing short of transformative. Following on from the first blog in the series, this second blog delves into how geoscientific insights serve as the driving force behind reservoir engineering decisions, ultimately maximising the potential of energy reserves.
In the realm of subsurface engineering, two distinct disciplines stand as pillars of knowledge and expertise: geoscience and reservoir engineering. Their collaborative efforts form the backbone of our ability to unlock the full potential of energy resources. In this article, the first in a series, we will unravel the significance of each role and how their synergy propels the industry forward.
Reservoir simulation brings together interpretations from a wide range of geoscience specialisms and simulates the dynamic flow of fluid through that interpretation. The aim is to get a geologically sound model that fits the real test and production history of the field.
