IFPEN expertise and knowlegde about outcrops as analogues of complex reservoirs.

For more than 30 years IFPEN has developed a strong expertise in outcrop analogue characterization in complex environments, from field data acquisition to reservoir modeling (e.g. Pab, MEC, COMPAS consortia…). We propose an efficient workflow to describe and model the outcrops, using sedimentology, stratigraphy, diagenesis and reservoir modeling. The aims are to define conceptual relationships between geobody types, to quantitatively characterize the dimensions and geometry of geobodies or to propose use-cases to calibrate modeling parameters and to design workflows.
