Reservoir Characterization

188 result(s) found.

reservior characterization  Reservoir models simulate behavior of fluids within a reservoir under different conditions to help asset teams develop optimal production techniques. Important concepts and terms, ranging from additivity to geostatistics, from seal to variogram and Walther's law, are covered in this discipline. All terms have been defined and reviewed by reservoir-characterization experts, and many definitions include high-quality graphics.
