Research Topic

I am currently working on stochastic stratigraphy well correaltion. The correlation of outcrop or well cores and logs is a fundamental step in reservoir studies and modeling, yet subject to many uncertainties. My project aims at creating an algorithm which could generate several possible sets of stratigraphic well correlations. This algorithm would be based on the computation of the correlation probability between each stratigraphic units. From these probabilities, several possible realizations of correlations will be computed. These realizations will be used to:

  1. evaluate the accuracy of the well interpretation in terms of facies and depositional environments;
  2. generate reservoir model integrating uncertainties due to stratigraphic well correlation.
