Module 6: Petroleum Geochemistry

Petroleum Geochemistry: Conventional Reservoir Geochemistry

Learning Objectives:

  • Reasons for differences in fluid compositions
  • How reservoirs are filled and mix
    - Shell, BP models
  • Paragenetic history/Fluid inclusions as means of determining reservoir filling history
  • Compositional grading – methods and examples
  • Reservoir connectivity and compartmentalization – methods and examples
  • Estimating fluid residence times
  • Effects of in-reservoir alteration on petroleum - biodegradation theory and examples, water washing, phase separation, tar mats, fluid contacts
  • Fluid properties prediction
  • Non-hydrocarbon gases introduction
  • Solids problems; e.g., wax, asphaltenes, soaps, hydrates
  • Production Monitoring and Allocation
    - Complementary inorganic geochemical methods
