Truly Integrating Static & Dynamic Modeling


Geo2Flow is a modeling tool that embodies an inherently interdisciplinary methodology, integrating both, raw data and interpretations from petrophysics, reservoir engineering, geology, and geophysics to do the following:

• Use core and log-based saturation data and MDT/RFT pressures to identify rock quality,
reservoir compartments and free water levels.
• Create 3D saturations that are physically reasonable and that honor the saturation logs
• Achieve permeabilities that are consistent with saturation, porosity, and free water levels.
• Initialize flow simulators with 3D properties, saturation tables, free water levels, and fluid properties that are consistent with all existing data and that match the volumetrics of the geological model.
• Assess subsurface uncertainties in key variables affecting compartments, saturations,
and permeabilities.

The presentation entails an overview of the methodology along with a demonstration of Geo2Flow to illustrate points in the presentation.

The Speaker: Dr. Dan O’Meara’s thirty-nine years of experience in the Oil and Gas Industry are broadly based, encompassing reservoir engineering, geological modeling, petrophysics, software development, academia, management, and consulting. He has worked with major oil companies, national companies, and independents on evaluating some of the largest oil and gas fields in the
world. He is internationally recognized as an expert in reservoir characterization and reserves estimation. He has been a Distinguished Lecturer of the Society of Petroleum Engineers and has been Consultant of the Year for Landmark in 1997. From 1992-2006, he was the Director of the Institute for Reservoir Characterization at the University of Oklahoma. From 2006-2009, he was
Chief Advisor to Landmark for Reserves Estimation and Validation. His software products, Geo2Flow and StrataSim, have been developed by O’Meara Consulting and marketed worldwide. They have gained respect as leading-edge, interdisciplinary tools that “raise the bar” technically in the arena of reservoir characterization. Through O’Meara-Castagna, Inc., he collaborated on a geophysical software product that performs synthetic velocity analysis. Dan received his Ph.D. (1979) from Princeton University, specializing in Fluid Mechanics. He also has an M.A. from Princeton and a B.S. from the University of Rochester. Early in his career, he was with both Shell and BP. To date, he has been awarded five patents for inventions involving measurement of the flow characteristics of reservoir rocks and the assessment of oil and gas reserves.
