Reservoir management studies are important when choices must be made. The choices can range from “business as usual” to major changes in investment strategy. By studying a range of operating scenarios, management can decide how to allocate finite resources to optimize the economic recovery of hydrocarbons from a prudently operated field. Reservoir flow modeling is the most sophisticated reservoir engineering methodology available for conducting a reservoir management study.

Many disciplines contribute to the preparation of an accurate reservoir flow model. Each discipline typically uses models of the subsurface that are discipline specific. The integration of data from different disciplines is...
