CWLS Luncheon: Physical and Digital Core Analysis for Tight Reservoir Characterization
When: April 25, 2018; Lunch served at 11:30 AM, Presentation starts at 12:00 PM
SPEAKER: Apostolos Kantzas, PhD, P.Eng., President & CEO
ABSTRACT: The exploration of unconventional formations challenges the reservoir exploration and characterization practitioners since the methods and technologies associated with reservoir characterization were not designed for unconventionals, whether they are tight, shale, heavy oil / bitumen or (even worse) a combination of the above.
In our research and development we are trying to create new experimental methods, theoretical models and new simulation tools for enhanced reservoir characterization. In this presentation we will provide examples of how these techniques are developed and used.
Magnetic Resonance is now able to provide data of bulk vs. adsorbed phases. New theoretical models are developed to highlight the role of adsorption and desorption in shale production. Digital core analysis demonstrates that, given adequate resolution, images of pore space can generate all the pertinent petrophysical reservoir properties.
BIOGRAPHY: Dr. Kantzas founded the Tomographic Imaging & Porous Media Laboratory “TIPM Lab” (aka PERM Inc.) in 1994. A professor from the University of Calgary, Dr. Kantzas has tremendous experience in leading advanced research of porous media, primarily dealing with petroleum reservoir engineering issues. He is an expert in Tomographic Imaging, Porous Media Physics and Magnetic Resonance Sensor Technology. Dr. Kantzas currently leads an NSERC/AITF Industrial Research Chair in Fundamentals of Unconventional Resources (FUR).
