Key words: conceptual geological modeling, facial analysis, interpretation of seismic data, connection of geological aspects with well test data.

In a complex reservoir during planning new drilling and well intervention at later stages of development of the field, it is necessary to apply an integrated approach to the study of geology aspects of reservoir: sedimentological core description, analysis of seismic, facies modeling, connection geological characterization of reservoir with production data. Conceptual geological modeling helps to make operational decision-making and minimize risks associated with geological uncertainties.
