Abstract

This paper describes one solution to the problem of constraining geostatistical models by well-test results which has been obtained within the frame of the HELIOS research project conduced by Elf and IFP in the field of reservoir engineering. To do so, a numerical simulation program devoted to the simulation of well-tests has been coupled with a nonlinear constrained optimization program to make an inversion loop. The resulting software package provides the reservoir engineer with a tool to compute the set of optimal facies or rock-type properties and the well skin which give the best fit between the simulated and the measured well pressure during the test duration. Any petrophysical facies or rock-type property can be assigned either a constant value everywhere or a Gaussian distribution defined by its mean and its standard deviation.
