In reservoir engineering, it is attractive to characterize the difference between reservoir models in metrics that relate to the economic performance of the reservoir as well as to the underlying geological structure. In this paper, we develop a dissimilarity measure that is based on reservoir flow patterns under a particular operational...

Model-based dynamic optimization of the water-flooding process in oil reservoirs is a computationally complex problem and suffers from high levels of uncertainty. A traditional way of quantifying uncertainty in robust water-flooding optimization is by considering an ensemble of uncertain model realizations. These models are generally not...

In this work, the application of tensor methodologies for computer-assisted history matching of channelized reservoirs is explored. A tensor-based approach is used for the parameterization of petrophysical parameters to reduce the dimensionality of the parameter estimation problem. Building on the work of Afra and Gildin (2013); Afra et.al. ...

Model-based economic optimization of oil production has a significant scope to increase financial life-cycle performance. The net-present-value (NPV) objective in this optimization, because of its nature, focuses on long-term gains, whereas short-term production is not explicitly addressed. At the same time, the achievable NPV is highly...

We present a method to determine lower and upper bounds to the predicted production or any other economic objective from history-matched reservoir models. The method consists of two steps: 1) performing a traditional computer-assisted history match of a reservoir model with the objective to minimize the mismatch between predicted and observed...

We consider robust ensemble-based (EnOpt) multiobjective production optimization of on/off inflow-control devices (ICDs) for a sector model inspired by a real-field case. The use of on/off valves as optimization variables leads to a discrete control problem. We propose a reparameterization of such discrete controls in terms of switching times...

This paper proposes a new methodology to perform value of information (VOI) analysis within a closed-loop reservoir management (CLRM) framework. The workflow combines tools such as robust optimization and history matching in an environment of uncertainty characterization. The approach is illustrated with two simple examples: an analytical...

This paper extends previous work on value of information (VOI) assessment in closed-loop reservoir management (CLRM) to estimate the added value of performing multiple measurements along the producing life of the reservoir. The new procedure is based on the workflow from our previous paper which allows to quantify the VOI of a single observation...

We present a novel method for estimating physical properties of an underground hydrocarbon reservoir, on the basis of generally measured wellbore ow rate and pressure signals at the bottom of a producing well. The method uses instrumental variable-based system identification techniques to solve for a closed-loop errors-in-variables problem....

The ‘Egg Model’ is a synthetic reservoir model consisting of an ensemble of 101 relatively small three-dimensional realizations of a channelized oil reservoir produced under water flooding conditions with eight water injectors and four oil producers. It has been used in numerous publications to demonstrate a variety of aspects related to...

It is well known that parameter updating of large-scale numerical reservoir flow models (a.k.a. ‘computer assisted history matching’) is an ill-posed inverse problem. Typically the number of uncertain parameters in a reservoir flow model is very large whereas the available information for estimating these parameters is limited. The classic...

We consider robust ensemble-based multi-objective optimization using a hierarchical switching algorithm for combined long-term and short term water flooding optimization. We apply a modified formulation of the ensemble gradient which results in improved performance compared to earlier formulations. We also apply multi-dimensional scaling to...

In an earlier study two hierarchical multi-objective methods were suggested to include short-term targets in life-cycle production optimization. However this earlier study has two limitations: 1) the adjoint formulation is used to obtain gradient information, requiring simulator source code access and an extensive implementation effort, and 2)...

Reservoir simulation models are frequently used to make decisions on well locations, recovery optimization strategies etc. The success of these applications is, among other aspects, determined by the controllability and observability properties of the reservoir model. In this paper it is shown how the controllability and observability of two...

In oil production waterflooding is a popular recovery technology, which involves the injection of water into an oil reservoir. Studies on model-based dynamic optimization of waterflooding strategies have demonstrated that there is a signifcant potential to increase life-cycle performance, measured in Net Present Value. However, in these studies...

Due to urgent needs to increase efficiency in oil recovery from subsurface reservoirs new technology is developed that allows more detailed sensing and actuation of multiphase flow properties in oil reservoirs. One of the examples is the controlled injection of water through injection wells with the purpose to displace the oil in an appropriate...

Over the past few years, more and more systems and control concepts have been applied in reservoir engineering, such as optimal control, Kalman filtering, and model reduction. The success of these applications is determined by the controllability, observability, and identifiability properties of the reservoir at hand. The first contribution of...
