Reservoir characterization - a procedure for generating the input for numerical reservoir simulation - is crucial in the design and prediction of most oil recovery projects. This volume provides an in-depth, interdisciplinary survey of the current practices, problems, research, and trends in this important field. Leading authorities in reservoir engineering, geology, hydrology, and statistics present state-of-art methods of reservoir characterization. Papers focus on the microscopic, mesoscopic, macroscopic, and magascopic scales. "Reservoir Characterization II" is unique in its integration of data from a range of disciplines, and will be an indispensable reference for reservoir engineers, geologists, hydrologists, geohydrologists, petrophysicists, and geostatisticians.
