Abstract

A methodology for constructing an analogue 3D model for clastic reservoirs in an estuary-shoreface depositional environment using outcrop information is discussed. Such analogue models provide valuable information related to reservoir architecture and rock properties that can be used to model sedimentary structures in the subsurface. A new approach for upscaling high-resolution models using nonuniform coarsened grid is introduced. Simulation results for a viscous dominated flow process show that nonuniform grids yield better results compared to uniform grids.
