Geothermal Reservoir Quality from Diagenesis Modelling

This talk at the European Geothermal Congress 2019 by researchers at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (an RQC member organization) explores the use of Geocosm’s Touchstone system for evaluation of reservoir quality for geothermal energy. Geocosm’s Linda Bonnell also is among the authors.

EAGE Presentation

Rob Lander and Linda Bonnell from Geocosm gave an invited presentation at the EAGE in Copenhagen regarding the state-of-the-art in reservoir quality prediction methods on June 11, 2018. Summary:Sandstone reservoir quality prediction has moved from a reliance on simple empirical trends (e.g., porosity vs. depth) to include process-oriented forward models. Process-oriented models are more accurate…

Clastic Reservoir Quality Prediction Models: Past, Present, and Future

In this invited talk at the Annual AAPG Meeting, Geocosm’s Rob Lander and Linda Bonnell review the history and current state-of-the-art in reservoir quality prediction models while also discussing potential future developments. Over the past 20 years reservoir quality assessment has expanded from a focus on description to encompass process-oriented models. These models predict rock…

3-D Grain-Scale Simulation of Diagenesis and Rock Properties

In this presentation at the AAPG Annual Meeting Geocosm authors discuss concepts associated with Cyberstone, Geocosm’s revolutionary and patented Digital Sedimentary Petrology model. Fundamental geomechanical, petrophysical, and fluid-flow properties of clastic rocks reflect grain-scale compositions and textures. There is a revolution underway in the ability to predict these properties via “digital physics” simulations at the…
