Classical Reservoir Modeling
Definition - What does Classical Reservoir Modeling mean?
Classical Reservoir Modeling is a conventional method which is used in reservoir simulation. When using this modeling technique to create a map, reservoir parameters are mapped under two dimensions, namely x and y. The resulting model or a map which is prepared contains two structure maps (top and bottom structures) which are derived from the collection of seismic data received from the rock formations.
Petropedia explains Classical Reservoir Modeling
Classical Reservoir Modeling is similar to reservoir simulation modeling. It can be considered to be a part of Reservoir Engineering. This modeling technique is used to create two dimensional reservoir models by understanding the seismic and well data. This set of data is interpolated and used to understand the thickness of the rock bed, and other petrophysical and geological parameters of the formations. The primary objective of reservoir modeling is to find a reservoir which is reasonably continuous but not too much heterogeneous.
