Abstract

Geoscientists and reservoir engineers are challenged to integrate data of different scales to better understand fluid movement in oil reservoirs. Different technologies are capable of imaging fluid movement in the reservoir at different scales. Two-dimensional fluid imaging has been achieved recently through crosswell and surface-to-borehole electromagnetic (EM) measurements. Three-dimensional fluid movement imaging has shown potential by using surface seismic data volumes. The Multiscale Reservoir Surveillance and Monitoring Workshop, held virtually 7–9 December 2020, attempted to address the challenge of how to integrate these measurements obtained at different scales into a workflow to improve the understanding of fluid flow, which is critical for sweep efficiency and recovery.
