Assignment Instruction: Reservoir surveillance is a process of gathering and
analyzing the information necessary to control operations
and maximize the economic recovery of hydrocarbons.
Geologists and geophysicists play a key role in this
process, from early exploration and appraisal to the
mature stages of production.
In this assignment, you will consider how various
geological and geophysical tools can be used for reservoir
monitoring, and determine their applicability to the
surveillance program for the Upper/Middle Sands.
By the time you complete this assignment, you should
be able to establish a basis for integrating geophysical
and geological data and incorporating them into the
reservoir surveillance program.
The exploration/appraisal program for this reservoir
is currently in its third year. So far, four wells have
been drilled: 4E1-NE, 5C1-SW (suspended), 2A5-NE and
