Reservoir Rock and Fluid Properties

Define the properties of the reservoir rock/fluid system. Upon completing this Learning Module assignment, the participant should be able to define the following reservoir properties and understand their importance in the overall reservoir development scheme: rock properties (porosity, permeability, fluid saturation, compressibility, anisotropy), fluid properties (phase behavior, PVT relationships, density, viscosity, compressibility, formation volume factor, gas-oil ratio), rock/fluid interactions (wettability, interfacial tension, capillary pressure, relative permeability), read and understand wellsite descriptions of recovered core material, evaluate the core handling and preservation techniques employed, and select sample intervals for laboratory analysis, generate a procedure for preparing and analyzing selected core samples, specifying the tests to be run and the information to be obtained, describe the laboratory techniques and perform the calculations used for determining rock properties, design procedures for obtaining representative surface and subsurface formation fluid samples, describe procedures for generating PVT analyses of reservoir fluid samples, and interpret the resulting reports, and use published correlations to estimate reservoir fluid properties.
