1. Watkins, Laura L. Statistical Characterization of Fluvial-Deltaic Reservoirs with Archetypes.

Degree: MS, Mathematics and Statistics, 1998, Utah State University

Optimizing the extraction of oil and other hydrocarbon products from existing sites is important. One source of hydrocarbon products is reservoirs found within sedimentary rock formations. Understanding fluid behavior within such formations can be quite useful in optimizing oil production. Fluid behavior within sedimentary formations is influenced by the bedform structure and permeabilities within the formation. Thus, we are concerned with developing a physically and statistically valid method of characterizing sedimentary rock formations. The use of archetypal analysis to generate synthetic bedforms, as well as the use of Kriging to assign permeabilities within a bedform, was explored. With these tools, a characterization of a sedimentary rock formation can be created and fluid flow through the charactrerization examined. It appears that the bedform structure within a realization has a greater influence on fluid flow than any permeability structure created by utilizing Kriging. Advisors/Committee Members: Joseph V. Koebbe, Todd Moon, Jim Powell, ;.
