FLOW UNITS IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF HYDROCARBON BEARING ZONES, AQUA FIELD. NIGER-DELTA, NIGERIA

FLOW UNITS IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF HYDROCARBON BEARING ZONES, AQUA FIELD. NIGER-DELTA, NIGERIA ABSTRACT Reservoir characterization is the key to a successful oil field development program. The recovery efficiency of any reservoir is influenced by its heterogeneities; particularly the distribution of porosity and permeability. To develop a reservoir model that represents the reservoir properties we …
