Inversion of Pressure Transient Testing Data
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
In the oilfield, pressure transient testing is an ideal tool for determining average reservoir parameters, but this technique does not fully quantify the uncertainty in the spatial distribution of these parameters. We wish to determine plausible parameter distributions, consistent with both the pressure transient testing data and prior geological knowledge. We used a Langevin-based MCMC technique, adapted to the large number of parameters and data, to identify geological features and characterize the uncertainty.
