Red River Formation Amor Field
@ 9,500 ft. Bowman County, ND
Ordovician Age Williston Basin
Expected Benefits and Applications: Intelligent Computing System (ICS) is being used for reservoir characterization to identify drilling location s in carbonate reservoirs in the southern Williston Basin. ICS employs clustering and neural network or fuzzy logic techniques to make predictions of reservoir quality and position of oil/water contacts that have guided horizontal drilling on structural features in the Red River formation at 9,500 ft. Phase I version ICS, software is free and can be downloaded from the project website, http://www.luffdoeproject.com/
Accomplishments: Provided the oil chemistry data to develop source rock report fall 2001. All available for electronic well information has bee provided for Basin Model and Oil Maturation report September 2001. A capillary study has begun from well logs and cores to complete a rock-typing report of the Red River. Seismic data has been incorporated into a seismic model and attribute study. Software tools in ICS are completed for evaluating data sets from seismic, geological and engineering sources. The Intelligent Computing System is being developed as a set of modules for different data sets and reservoir characterization objectives. These modules are organized in a fashion after human-thought processes involved in prospect evaluation. The first module is aimed at characterizing the depositional setting. The next nodule will attempt to characterize the growth history (tectonic movement) after deposition to present time. The next module will attempt to predict reservoir development directly from various seismic attributes obtained from 3D seismic surveys. Related to the 3D seismic-attribute module is a module that will work with 2D seismic data. Another module will also use attributes from 3D seismic survey s but will be focused on predicting fluids, i.e. higher oil saturation. A module for estimating the reservoir entrapment potential will also be developed.
