This book brings the practice of petroleum geostatistics into a coherent framework, focusing on tools, techniques, examples, and guidance. It will emphasize interaction between geophysicists, geologists, and engineers. Intended as a reference text for practitioners, the book will also be appropriate for "short courses" and advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in reservoir more

Review quote

"This book explains geostatistical tools for building numerical geological models of petroleum reservoirs, for undergraduate and graduate students and for practicing geologists, geophysicists, and engineers. Essential theory is developed in the context of modeling petroleum reservoirs. Various methods are described and guidance is given on when to use each particular method. Chapters cover the steps and methodologies involved in typical reservoir modeling, and examine preliminary statistical concepts, gridding reservoir layers, quantifying spatial correlation, mapping concepts, cell-based and object-based facies modeling, porosity and permeability modeling, simulated annealing for geostatistics, and uncertainty management. A glossary is included."--SciTech Book News"This book represents the pinnacle of the recent collection of books on statistics for petroleum geologists that I have collected..."Technometricsshow more
