Course description

History Matching and Reservoir Optimization - HMRO

This course is designed to cover state-of-the-art techniques/workflows for history matching geologic and reservoir models for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. The course will discuss manual and assisted history matching methods and also, inverse modeling techniques and the pros and cons of the methods.

The production/history data can be in the form of pressure or rate transient tests, tracer tests, multiphase production history, or interpreted 4D seismic information.

Field examples will be presented to illustrate the current state of the art and limitations. The use of history matched models for optimizing reservoir development and management strategies will be discussed. These include: optimal infill well-placement, rate optimization/well allocation for maximizing sweep efficiency, and optimizing well completions in unconventional reservoirs.

Who should attend?

Practicing geoscientists and engineers performing geologic modeling, reservoir simulation, and optimization studies. Participants are expected to have basic knowledge and/or experience related to geologic modeling and reservoir simulation.
