Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR HYDROCARBON RESERVOIR DIVIDED MODEL GENERATION AND DEVELOPMENT
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE GÉNÉRATION ET DE DÉVELOPPEMENT DE MODÈLE DIVISÉ DE RÉSERVOIR D'HYDROCARBURES
Abstract
(EN) Provided are techniques tor developing a hydrocarbon reservoir that include : determining a reservoir model of a hydrocarbon reservoir that includes columns of gridblocks that represent a vertical segment of the reservoir; acquiring nano-images of a rock sample of the reservoir; determining, based on the nano-images, properties of an inorganic pore network and an organic pore network of tire rock sample; generating a divided reservoir model of the reservoir that represents the inorganic and organic pore networks of the reservoir, including: for each of the columns of gridblocks, dividing each of the gridblocks of the column into: a water-wet gridblock associated with the properties of the inorganic pore network determined based on the nano-images; and an oil-wet gridblock associated with the properties of the organic pore network determined based on the nano-images: and generating, using the divided reservoir model, a simulation of the hydrocarbon reservoir.
(FR) L'invention concerne des techniques de développement d'un réservoir d'hydrocarbures qui comprennent : la détermination d'un modèle de réservoir d'un réservoir d'hydrocarbures qui comprend des colonnes de blocs de grille qui représentent un segment vertical du réservoir ; l'acquisition de nano-images d'un échantillon de roche du réservoir ; la détermination, sur la base des nano-images, des propriétés d'un réseau de pores inorganiques et d'un réseau de pores organiques de l'échantillon de roche de pneu ; la génération d'un modèle de réservoir divisé du réservoir qui représente les réseaux de pores inorganiques et organiques du réservoir, comprenant : pour chacune des colonnes de blocs de grille, la division de chacun des blocs de grille de la colonne en : un bloc de grille imprégné d'eau associé aux propriétés du réseau de pores inorganiques déterminé sur la base des nano-images ; et un bloc de grille imprégné d'huile associé aux propriétés du réseau de pores organiques déterminé sur la base des nano-images : et la génération, à l'aide du modèle de réservoir divisé, d'une simulation du réservoir d'hydrocarbures.
