History Matching in Two-Phase Petroleum Reservoirs


An automatic history-matching algorithm based on an optimal control approach has been formulated for joint estimation of spatially varying permeability and porosity and coefficients of relative permeability functions in two-phase reservoirs. The algorithm uses pressure and production rate data simultaneously. The performance of the algorithm for the water-flooding of one- and two-dimensional hypothetical reservoirs is examined, and properties associated with the parameter estimation problem are discussed.
