Ranking and Upscaling of Geostatistical Reservoir Models Using Streamline Simulation: A Field Case Study Conference Paper uri icon


  • The application of streamline simulation for ranking and upscaling of geostatical models for a middle-eastern carbonate reservoir, was discussed. Multiple geostatistical reservoir description was generated using a hierarchical approach, whereby, the larger level of uncertainty was first followed by smaller levels. Using the field-wide sweep efficiency as a performance measure, the realization was ranked and used for flow simulation to assess risks associated with various development strategies. It was found that the speed of streamline-based ranking makes it practical to examine the impact of uncertainty associated with various static and dynamic parameters under realistic conditions.
