Today's high technology acquisition and processing methods provide startling, and occasionally awesome, graphical and numerical simulations of subsurface petroleum reservoirs. Dynamic reservoir modeling has become common terminology, and is fast becoming leading edge technology. Reservoir characterization represents our best attempt to model the geometric shape (including thickness, interruption, and extent) of a reservoir rock, and to predict that reservoir's ability to produce hydrocarbons. Reservoir geometry must consider shape, size, and orientation in addition to postdepositional distortion caused by folding, faulting, subsidence, salt intrusion, etc.
