Multipoint statistics of azimuth angle clabes: An application to the simulation of channel structures and the evaluation of porosity in siliciclastic reservoirs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

This work presents a new methodology for simulating the morphology and abebing the porosity of sand channels in siliciclastic reservoirs. The simulation of the channel morphology is of multi-point type, and the results are polygonal lines conditional to orientation angles and tortuosity (sequence of orientation angles) of one or several reference channels, together with the distribution laws of size measurements. The evaluation of the porosity for each block of the reservoir grid accounts the proportion of non-channel/channel volumes together with the proportions of channel facies according to a conceptual geological model. For illustration purposes, a case study is presented with synthetic data.
