Capillary Pressure data integration helps defining carbonates reservoir compartmentalization

Francisco Caycedo (Cayros Group)

This post is about an interesting example of how the capillary pressure data integrated with other information helped to understand the compartmentalization of a carbonate field that was under water injection.

One of the potential problems affecting the efficiency of water injection techniques is the areal variation of the rock quality. In this case study, a permeability barrier was preventing that one part of the field benefits from the waterflooding influence. No faulting or any other structural feature was observed in the seismic.
