Reservoir compartmentalization, the segregation of a petrol accumulation right into a variety of person fluid/pressure cubicles, controls the quantity of transportable oil or fuel that may be hooked up to any given good drilled in a box, and for this reason affects on reserves reserving and operational profitability. this can be a normal characteristic of recent exploration and creation portfolios, and has pushed significant advancements in geoscience, engineering and similar expertise. on condition that compartmentalization is a end result of many components, an built-in subsurface technique is needed to raised comprehend and expect compartmentalization behaviour, and to lessen the chance of it happening unexpectedly. This quantity experiences our present realizing and skill to version compartmentalization. It highlights the need for powerful professional self-discipline integration, and the worth of studying from operational event in: detection and tracking of compartmentalization; stratigraphic and mixed-mode compartmentalization; and fault-dominated compartmentalization.

A statistical analysis of a much larger database (not reported here) indicates that c. 35% of the total variation in recovery factor can be accounted for by the degree of reservoir compartmentalization. Figure 3 shows the compartmentalization complexity scores for a large global database (n . 400) of producing oil and gas fields. This shows that c. 1/3 of the reservoirs fall in the lower two categories (minimal compartmentalization), about 1/3 fall in the middle category (moderate compartmentalization) and the remaining 1/3 fall into the Fig.
