SPWLA Formation Testing Webinar Series No. 4

SPEAKER: Camilo Gelvez, University of Texas at Austin

STUDY OF THE EFFICIENCY OF FLUID CLEANUP IN HETEROGENEOUS FORMATIONS WITH VARIOUS FORMATION-TESTING TOOLS

There are two identical sessions:
Morning - Tuesday, November 19th,  8:00am – 8:40am US Central Time; 
Evening - Tuesday,  November 19th,  5:00pm – 5:40pm US Central Time.


Speaker Bio: 
Camilo Gelvez is a Graduate Research Assistant in the Formation Evaluation Research Consortium at the University of Texas at Austin where he is currently doing his Ph.D. studies in the Hildebrand Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering. His research interests are formation testing, petrophysics, formation evaluation and reservoir characterization. He is B.S. in Petroleum Engineering from Universidad Industrial de Santander (Colombia, 2009) and M.S. in Petroleum Engineering and Project Development from IFP School (France, 2011). From 2010-2013 he worked as Production Engineer in CEPSA, developing exploratory fields. During 2013-2017, he was Reservoir Engineer in Mansarovar Energy, simulating and characterizing mature oil fields.

Abstract: This study presents a reliable model to represent various formation testing tools during cleanup and sampling operations. Finding the best tool-probe configuration through a fully-calibrated model has a significant impact on cleanup efficiency. The model is constructed based on a field-case simulation of a water saturated reservoir drilled with a blue dye tracer water base mud (WBM). The tracer allows to track the contaminated zone during mud filtrate invasion and cleanup. Simulation and history match of lab test data and optical analyzer data for tracer cleanup serves to further represent several formation testing tools in a variety of reservoirs and cleanup-sampling schedules. In addition, the simulated contamination cleanup data is a powerful tool to analyze the cleanup derivatives and to evaluate different aspects of reservoirs during real-time cleanup and sampling operations.
