Abstract

Automatic history matching is refined in this work by expanding the objective function and incorporating reservoir characteristics in the process of parameter selection. Iso-value contours are used to incorporate reservoir characteristics within history-matching parameters. These improvements are implemented in an automatic history-matching algorithm, OPTIM, that is coupled with BOAST II. Case histories of both hypothetical and real reservoirs demonstrated the effectiveness of incorporating reservoir characteristics in automatic history-matching parameters.
