Uncertainty in Reservoir Evaluation - URE   

           

   Lithology and fluid prediction - LFP

Department of Mathematical Sciences /Petroleum Engineering & Applied Geophysics
Norwegian University of Science & Technology
Trondheim,

Norway

Vision:     

To provide creative mathematically based solutions to recognized challenges in reservoir evaluation.

Objectives:

Identify, develop and evaluate mathematically and physically based models for assessment of uncertainties in reservoir evaluation, and distribute information and provide training about these models through education, publishing and seminars.

The activity in the programme is inspired by the problem complexes:

·      near-well initial reservoir characterization integrating all available information

·      dynamic reservoir characterization based on repeated  seismic monitoring and production history

·      detecting rare spatial events such as faults, thin shales and other flow barriers from multiple data sources
