Project Description

Pipe-It History Matching allows you to minimize the difference between data and calculation while running the reservoir model and the well test conversion programs in sync.

Pipe-It can be used as a history matching and optimization tool for any commercial or in-house reservoir simulator. Some examples:

  • ECL 100 and ECL 300 (Schlumberger)
  • GEM, IMEX, and STARS (CMG)
  • tNavigator (RockFlowDynamics)
  • SENSOR (Coats Engineering)
  • Psim (ConocoPhillips)
  • GigaPowers (Saudi Aramco)

Flexible definition of history matching objectives:

  • Match observed production rates, pressures, GOR, water cut, cumulative production, etc.
  • Use any input model parameter as a history matching variable.
  • Fully customizable.
  • Any weighting scheme on observed data.

This solution integrates the reservoir models and does the necessary well test rate conversions.
