About this research group
The reservoir simulation activities at CIPR are designed to improve the reliability of reservoir models and reservoir model predictions, as well as making the modelling process and the simulations more effective. This includes seismic reservoir characterisation, reservoir simulation, and conditioning models to all available data, including dynamic data (production and pressure data and time-lapse, or 4D, seismic data).
We also aim to include electromagnetic data in an advanced workflow. Conditioning to dynamic data is mathematically an ill-conditioned problem with a non-unique solution, and a good solution requires efficient regularisation and/or uncertainty analysis and multiple runs, using time consuming reservoir simulation models.
