Special Publication 459

In the current cost-constrained environment for hydrocarbon exploitation, increasing emphasis is being placed on robust subsurface description and a clear understanding of the range of uncertainty associated with reservoir models.  Structural heterogeneity, particularly at the subseismic scale, forms an integral part of these refined descriptions as it allows greater prediction of subsurface flow characteristics.  This volume examines the best current practice and new challenges in hydrocarbon reservoir characterization and modelling of small to subseismic deformation features through case studies, experimental results and modelling.  The papers follow four themes: characterization of deformation in porous sandstones, novel characterization techniques, quantifying and characterizing deformation in carbonates, and modelling small-scale features.  It includes a collection of papers from a two-day international conference that brought academic and industry geoscientists and engineers together to discuss best current practice and new challenges in reservoir characterization and modelling of small to subseismic deformation features.  The volume should be of interest to geoscientists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers and modellers.
