Characterization and permeability modeling of complex Mauddud-Burgan carbonate reservoir
"Mauddud-Burgan is a carbonate reservoir located in southeast Kuwait which is known for its structural complexity, especially in the context of horizontal drilling activities...This study addresses a detailed characterization of Mauddud-Burgan formation to expedite future reservoir planning and development. The detailed analysis involved seven aspects of reservoir characterizations, including: geological study, thin-section study, XRD study, SEM study, core study, well logging study and well test analysis....The principal objective of the study is to integrate results obtained from experimental measurements of rock samples from Well A, and, to build a model based on this integration. A new, unconventional approach of modeling based on Neural Networks is used to characterize the permeability of Mauddud-Burgan"--Abstract, leaf iii.
