Reservoir monitoring can be applied on small fields but has been (to date) mainly applied on large fields and deepwater operations where its impacts have such a large potential impact that economic justification is easy. The field development planning and operations management of such fields is now almost invariably assigned to integrated asset teams comprising reservoir and production engineers, geologists, geophysicists and other specialists such as geomechanics and petrophysics experts. The expertise for the technology of reservoir monitoring is often best known by subsets of this team. While the production or completions engineer may best understand downhole measurements, the petrophysicist may be the expert in production logging, the geophysicist in 4D seismic, the geologist in the static model construction and the reservoir engineer in pressure transient analysis and reservoir simulation.

Reservoir management is the application of earth sciences and engineering to safely optimize the recovery of hydrocarbons and associated materials from subsurface reservoirs. These reservoirs are rock formations that trap hydrocarbons and are primarily accessed by wellbores drilled from the surface. While crude oil and natural gas with its associated natural gas liquids are the primary commercial […]
