DGS International Dinner Meeting - Managing Complex Fractured Carbonate Reservoirs

Managing fractured carbonate reservoirs remains a challenge due to scarcity of data in the preliminary stages of appraisal and development of a field but even mature fields with more data have encountered similar challenges. Integration of data at the early stages of exploration can be as critical to the development of a field using data such as core, logs, FMI, seismic, and using geological analogues. Understanding the tectonic structural history of a carbonate basin, the facies distribution in relation to fractures, the magnitude of stress, and distribution of fluids is necessary to characterize the fracture systems in carbonate reservoirs. Fractured reservoir characterization in carbonate systems is critical in designing a project for evaluating and managing carbonate reservoirs. Several field studies provided insights to how the fracture network, its distribution and intensity, controls reserves and flow capability which dominate well performance. A workflow can be developed and provide solutions for each specific fractured carbonate reservoir using several methods such as generating geostatistical discrete fracture network (DFN), utilizing seismic techniques to assist in fracture description, and several reservoir modeling techniques.

Senior Geologist

Nancy Slatter is a Geologist with extensive experience in carbonate reservoirs and more than 10 years in the oil industry. She obtained her MS degree from the University of WI –Madison with emphasis on carbonate sedimentology under the supervision of Dr. Antonio J. Simo (Exxon) and Dr. Lloyd Pray.



 

She has worked on multiple basins around the world including West Texas (Permian), GOM, Sajaa Field (UAE), Kurdistan, Russia (Sakhalin), and North Africa. Nancy has contributed to several regional studies for reservoir management of both mature and exploratory carbonate reservoirs. Her work in the last few years has been focused on managing fractured carbonate reservoirs and currently working at Hunt Oil Co. in Dallas as a Senior Geologist for the New Ventures Team (Middle East).



 

She enjoys cycling, rock climbing, hiking, and field work during her spare time
