Geocellular modelling of diagenetically altered carbonates is challenging as geometries and pore systems often appear irregular. It has long been recognised, however, that tectonic evolution forms a framework that can influence patterns of carbonate facies, diagenesis and fracturing, the combination of which determines reservoir geometries and properties. Unravelling these processes can reveal trends that were not evident from well data alone. Such trends are useful in building geocellular models that extrapolate reservoir properties along them and can be used for economic screening of undrilled areas. This paper shows how standard reservoir modelling software can be used to model complex geology. In particular, it is shown how a carbonate reservoir model was constructed based on concepts of facies, burial diagenesis, hydrocarbon charge and fracturing. Workflows are discussed that were employed to distribute reservoir properties related to these processes.
