Job title:   CONDITIONING GEOLOGICAL MODELS USING SEQUENTIAL OPTIMIZATION
Job ID:  10058972
Location:  United Kingdom – Aberdeen

Job description

Reservoir models are an essential component in the analysis and evaluation of hydrocarbon prospects and resources. Such models can be generated using one of a number of traditional pixel-based or object-based geostatistical methods to replicate a geological concept and to account for the inherent uncertainty between known data points.The models are typically conditioned to known data as detailed, but sparse, 2D core and well-log data, and low-resolution, but extensive, 3D seismic date. While pixel-based methods are simpler to condition to known data than object-based methods, in certain situations they cannot honour the complex distributions, geometries, hierarchies and interactions of geological features in the sub surface. This project will involve carrying out novel research to apply an existing data assimilation technique and reformulate it, so that it can be used to condition object-based geological models to subsurface datasets. The developed methodology will be applied and demonstrated on both synthetic and real reservoir examples
