1 Presentation n PfEFFER Basis n Review and Demonstration of PfEFFER v. 2.0/Pro n Examples

2 PfEFFER Version 2/Pro Developers: Geoff Bohling, John Doveton, Willard Guy, W. Lynn Watney, and Saibal Bhattacharya in collaboration with 14 companies, U.S. Department of Energy, BDM-Oklahoma, Inc., and Kansas Technology Enterprise Corporation Release date of Version 2.0/Pro: February, 1998 Runs under Excel 97, Excel 2000, PfEFFER 2.0 add-ins and examples require 2 MB of disk space.

3 Programming platform n Add-ins for Excel 97 and Excel 2000 –PfEFFER.xla for PfEFFER 2.0 –Gridsim.xla, utmexl97.xla, and XsecExc97.xla for PfEFFER Pro n Developed in Visual Basic for Excel n Runs under Windows 95, 98, NT, & 2000 n Utilities are included to convert PfEFFER 1.1 (Excel 5.0) files to 2.0/Pro (Excel 97)

4 Goals of PfEFFER n Characterize subtle reservoir properties important to hydrocarbon pore volume and fluid flow; n Differentiate bypassed, commingled oil and gas reservoirs; n Integrate geological and engineering information; n Provide practical, accessible tools for log analysis.

5 Applications n Gauge reservoir productivity; n Discern communicating volumes of the reservoir; n Integrate with geologic models including deposition, diagenesis, and structure.

6 Practical, user-friendly log analysis using PfEFFER n Cost-effective, accessible well log analysis –spreadsheet based –graphically oriented –interactive, linked: easy “what-if” analysis –open ended with other Windows applications n Meeting ground for geologists & engineers

7 Old logs can be analyzed with PfEFFER * Minimum log data required by the spreadsheet-based software is a porosity and resistivity log. * Old logs are well suited to this analysis once they are digitized or simply typed into the spreadsheet.

8 Modules in PfEFFER 2.0 n Reading and organizing information from LAS digital files n Hough transform for simultaneous solution of Archie equation constants and formation water resistivity n Log (depth) display n Calculation of porosity with option for shale correction and secondary porosity n "Super Pickett" crossplot annotated with lines of water saturation, bulk volume water, and permeability

10 Modules in PfEFFER Pro n Color-image cross section generation n Latitude-longitude to UTM conversion n Bridging software to build input file for a reservoir simulator –tracking grid cells and well locations –gridding of reservoir parameters –preparing reservoir data to export to simulator

11 The Archie Equation S w = [ (a /  m )*(R w / R t ) ] (1/n) S w = [ (a /  m )*(R w / R t ) ] (1/n) – S w :water saturation –  :porosity – R w :formation water resistivity – R t :observed bulk resistivity – a:a constant (often taken to be 1) – m:cementation factor (varies around 2) – n:saturation exponent (generally 2)

12 Importing LAS files n Log ASCII Standard –Canadian Well Logging Society –Easy exchange (floppy disk) –Read/modify with standard word processor n OpenLAS Add-In –Displays available logs, depth range –Reads selected information into Excel –Creates a well workbook with unit worksheets »Units are named depth intervals (user-specified)


14 PfEFFER Worksheet Layout n Home area with computed parameters –Computations (links) keyed on RT, PHI (resistivity, porosity) via Archie equation –“whole-unit” parameters in column B n Attribute columns for auxiliary information –used for color-coding points on Pickett Plot –available for log vs. depth plots n Input logs, additional computations to right

15 PfEFFER Spreadsheet

41 Posting of Well Locations

42 A Contour Map - an Excel Chart

43 3-D Maps - an Excel Chart

44 Shaly Sand Models for Sw Calculation -- Sw model menu permit selection of Archie water saturation model (the default) and two shaly sand models, the Simandoux model and the dual-water model. Hough Transform -- The Hough transform is used for simultaneous solution of Archie equation constants and formation water resistivity. Secondary Porosity -- Secondary porosity is calculated as the difference between the total porosity (from density or neutron porosity) minus sonic porosity. Expanded log analysis in PfEFFER 2.0

45 Shaly Sandstone Model Sw Model = Archie Sw Model = Simandoux

46 Correcting Rt and Phi for Shale Effects n Corrected values provide improved correspondence to pore size, geometries, fluid saturations, capillary pressures, and hydrocarbon column n Evaluate models in combination, and determine which is best

47 Hough Transform -- for solution of Archie equation constants and formation water resistivity

48 Secondary Porosity

49 Other New features in PfEFFER 2.0 Zonation by Depth-constrained Cluster Analysis - Depth-constrained multivariate cluster analysis can be employed to segment the entire spreadsheet into subintervals based on user-specified set of logs. A hierarchical cluster (Ward's method) is used to produce subintervals that are as homogeneous as possible and distinct as possible from each other, in terms of their log characteristics. Option is useful in evaluating flow units and can be used as a blocking function. Forward Modeling -- Module implements equations developed by Pittman to predict values of rx, capillary pressure, and hydrocarbon column height for a range of water saturation values based on specific values of permeability and porosity.


51 Depth-constrained zonation used here as blocking function

52 Forward Modeling Then map Cp or height on Super Pickett plot

53 Forward Modeling n Model to explain observed log response; n Log response is function of rock pore type, texture, bedding, and hydrocarbon column; n Pittman (1992): predict radii of pore throats penetrated over range of mercury saturations for 202 sandstones; n Use Cp, phi, Sw and map on Pickett crossplot.

54 PfEFFER Pro - 3 Modules n Coordinate conversion n Parameters and gridding for simulation n Color image log cross sections

55 PfEFFER Pro -- Conversion of Latitude and Longitude to UTM coordinates (LatLngtoUTM) UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) is a common projection used for most geographic information system (GIS) applications, land grids and commercial mapping. The LntLngtoUTM module in PfEFFER Pro converts longitude (x) and latitude (y) data to UTM x-y coordinates, in units of meters. UTM x-y coordinates can then be are mapped using orthogonal axes.

56 PfEFFER Pro - GridforSim Generation of reservoir parameters for a fluid flow reservoir simulator (GridforSim) This module was developed to link the elements of building a petrophysical model and a simulation of the reservoir. Specific goals include: 1. reduce complexity in building an input file for a simulation, 2. facilitate interaction with the simulation such that the petrophysical model can be easily modified, thus linking engineering and geological disciplines, and 3. permit iteration to lead to a refined petrophysical geologic model and fluid flow simulation.

57 GridforSim module - generation of reservoir simulation parameters

58 GridforSim module -- includes viewing grids with well locations and generating contour maps
