Abstract:

In the 2016/17 Distinguished Lecture on ‘The Value and Danger of Reservoir Simulations’ the case was made to limit modelling to determining uncertainty ranges, and to base absolute forecasts for decision making on data analysis and analytical methods. Building on this concept, this presentation details the impact of adding geo-mechanical requirements to the modelling process. The danger of creating a false confidence in forecasts and the value of simulating combined geo-mechanical and flow processes are demonstrated with examples. This is a call for the return of the reservoir engineer who is in control of the simulations and not controlled by them.

Speaker Bio:

Daniel Yang is Petroleum Advisor at Shell Canada.  Holding a PhD in Geophysics from the Technical University of Berlin, Germany, he dedicated 15 years of his oil-industry career to Enhanced Oil Recovery methods, focussing on thermal recovery and originating from 10 years of research in geothermal energy.  He then took up the challenge of tight gas reservoirs. Daniel worked at Shell International, Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. and Laricina Energy Ltd. He holds two patents, was recognized as Subject Matter Expert in Shell, has over 20 publications, received a SPE Best Paper Award in 2014, and was a guest lecturer at universities in Germany, U.S.A. and Canada.
