Magnetic Resonance Imaging Logging, development and evolution as a fundamental evaluation tool in the reservoir management

Ron Cherry, Maged Fam and Emiliano López

Geological & Reservoir

Overview

Formation Evaluation Problems

High uncertainty in reservoir evaluation using conventional Log Analysis, due to:

  • Multilayer reservoirsmade up of an average of 20 stacked layers, about 5 mt. each.

  • Low formation water salinity

  • Several water/oil and gas/light oil contacts randomly distributed throughout a rock column of 1000 mts. (average 1500 to 2500 mts.)

  • Complex lithology (shaly and tuffaceous sand reservoirs)

  • Different hydrocarbon types

Geometric Mean T2 Cutoff vs. Depth

The high degree of variation in the T2 cutoff range may cause some inconsistencies in the final Interpretation.

Thus the SBVI method is a better technique for determining BVI.

Halliburton Question regarding details on test results

Dear Customer:

“…If We understand well, the formation was producing water for 8 hours before starting to produce Oil …??

You have insisted to keep it producing because there was a very good signal on the MRI Ultra-Long Te activation,….. Is that correct …??...”

Customer’s response

“It's correct...It has been a very good news today, because up to yesterday, we couldn't believe that from that signal it would be only water... We insisted and it was 2400 l/h x 88% of water (may be the amount of water would have declined if we would wait more time... but for us it was enough seeing some oil)…”

Conclusions l.jpg

Conclusions

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Logs as a fundamental evaluation tool in the reservoir Management

  • Determination of Porosity, Independent to Matrix

  • Determination of Bulk Volume Irreducible Water

  • Reliable Permeability Indicator (absolute after Calibration)

  • Identify Fluid Type (Gas, Oil & Water) by zone

  • Identification of Rock Quality…Permeability, Porosity & Clay

  • Determine variations of Hydrocarbon types (Resistivity independent)…

  • …Heavy, Intermediate, Light Oil or Gas
