Study of Computer Aided History Matching Technology


Article Preview

On the basic of studying the present technical situation of home and abroad about computer aided History Matching of the reservoir numerical simulation and digesting, absorbing technology, we studied and optimized highly effective algorithm fit for the aided History Matching. At the same time, we designed the software interface and frame and function module, developed the independent aided History Matching software named CAPHE, thus formed aided history methods suitable for our independent reservoir simulator-PBRS. By using of the software in practical some oil simulation blocks, CAPHE can significantly increase History Matching efficiency in the reservoir simulation.
