Field X comprises a giant Palaeogene limestone reservoir with a long production history. An original geomodel used for history matching employed a permeability transform derived directly from core data. However, the resulting permeability model required major modifications, such as horizontal and vertical permeability multipliers, in order to match the historic data. The rationale behind these multipliers is not well understood and not based on geological constraints. Our study employs an integrated near-wellbore upscaling workflow to identify and evaluate the geological heterogeneities that enhanced reservoir permeability. Key among these heterogeneities are mechanically weak zones of solution-enhanced porosity, leached stylolites and...
