  • Modeling Simian Field's deepwater slope-channel turbidites

    M. Said and M. Darwish

    The giant Simian Field in the West Delta Deep Marine (WDDM) concession offshore Egypt is an area where good 3D seismic coverage, combined with exploration and data acquisition programs, provided the opportunity to investigate a giant Pliocene deep-marine channel complex. After the exploration and appraisal stages, development started quickly. Understanding the reservoir’s internal architecture was a major challenge, since the well logs had considerable heterogeneity. Essential details needed to be reflected in the 3D geological model. The knowledge gained from the data helped the modeling team create a depositional model of the area. This depositional model, was integrated with pre-stack inverted seismic data and early dynamic data from producing wells, to generate a computerized 3D geological model for the field. The model’s value is derived from integration of the different data types. Early history matching, together with later development wells, verified this work.
