A Case Study of Permeability Modeling and Reservoir Performance in the Absence of Core Data in the Niger Delta, Nigeria

I. Aigbedion

Abstract:
This study accounts for how permeability was modeled in a reservoir without core data in the Niger Delta, Nigeria by using five empirical approaches namely, Timur, Coates/Dumanoir, Tixier, Aigbedion and also a correlation generated from core data of a near by field. The five permeability results from the five approaches were used in building five different 3Dgeological models. Flow simulations was carried out for all the models to analyze their flow performance. The permeability distribution from the correlation generated from the near by field core data yielded a higher oil recovery.
