This course addresses the broad topic of history matching in reservoir simulation, which entails the calibration of numerical flow simulation models to measured field data. It presents modern history matching approaches, focusing on the latest developments in the field, with special emphasis given to modifying geological parameters while maintaining geological consistency. The course will provide theoretical reservoir simulation and history matching concepts, workflows and examples.
This course can also be arranged as a 5-day "Workshop" with field case examples and practical exercises. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Course Structure: 3 modules of max. 4 hours each, delivered over 3 days Each day will consist of 1 module which will be no more than 4 hours in length with ample time for delegates to break for refreshments.
Course Level: Skill Instructor: Leonhard Ganzer
Designed for you, if you are...
A reservoir engineer or geoscientist interested in gaining a perspective on modern history matching techniques, particularly related to retaining geo-consistency as well as using a more modern data integration approach
Familiar with reservoir simulation and geological model building, as well as reservoir engineering concepts
How we build your confidence
Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions on their experience with simulation studies. Best practices for history matching and simulation artefacts are explained with examples useful for project work. The key role of sensitivity analysis in identifying influential model parameters is described. Best practices and common pitfalls in history matching are presented. Exchange among the participants during the course is stimulated and will optimise the learning event.
