Ensuring Reliable SCAL Data for Reservoir Modeling

SPE.org 

Special Core Analysis, SCAL data has a direct impact on the way fluids are allocated and distributed in the reservoir simulation models, which would directly impact reservoirs’ STOIIP estimation and their distribution. Moreover, it directly affects the performance of secondary and EOR flooding processes, and in turn impacts the accuracy of the oil and gas reserve estimates, and the management of these reserves. Therefore, SCAL data could be considered as one of the most critical reservoir input data for reservoir simulation models. This course will shed light on the theoretical and experimental background of SCAL data. It will explain the concept of reservoir wettability and different factors that could induce changes in reservoir wettability.
