Estimation of in place hydrocarbon volume in multilayered reservoirs using deterministic and probabilistic approaches

Abstract : This paper presents the results of the calculation techniques used for estimation of hydrocarbon initially in place for a multilayered gas reservoir located in the Persian Gulf via two methodologies. The porosity, water saturation, and net pay raw datasets for six wells enclosed within the studied area are thoroughly examined and fed to the deterministic and probabilistic calculation algorithms and the results are compared. In order to include the probable effects of the uncertainties associated with reservoir characterization, two distinct methodologies are developed and incorporated in both types of the calculation processes. In the first methodology, total hydrocarbon volume is calculated in one stage, while in another, hydrocarbon volume estimation have been carried out separately in each producing layer; then, summing them to estimate total hydrocarbon volume. The prominent conclusion of this research indicates that the second developed method in both deterministic and probabilistic conditions presentsmore reliable results for hydrocarbon volume estimation.
