Modern History Matching

The Modern History Matching Course covers the broad topic of history matching in reservoir simulation, which includes calibration of numerical flow simulation models to measured field data. It displays modern history matching approaches, concentrating 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 workflows, history matching concepts and examples. it can also be set up as a 5-day "Workshop" with field case examples and practical exercises.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is suitable for those who are:

  • Reservoir engineers or geoscientists 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

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Upon completion of this course, participants will feel confident in their understanding of:

  • Artefacts and sensitive model parameters in reservoir simulation models
  • Sources of uncertainty and how to quantify their impact on flow simulation
  • Best practices in history matching
  • Basic concepts behind modern assisted history matching methods
  • Geologically-consistent history matching
  • Common pitfalls in reservoir modelling and history matching
  • Methods and concepts behind commercial software solutions
  • Future trends
