A Multiscale Approach to Production Data Integration Using Streamline Models Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • A multiscale data integration approach that accounts for the varying resolving power of different data types from the very outset is proposed. Starting with a very coarse description, the production response at the wells are matched by recursively refining the reservoir grid. A multiphase streamline simulator is utilized for modeling fluid flow in the reservoir. The well data is then integrated using conventional geostatistics. The method is applied to synthetic data, illustrating good convergence and computational efficiency. Using well log data and water-cut production history from producing well, the feasibility of the approach for large-scale field applications is also demonstrated.
