Abstract

Geological models using statistical concepts bring a new horizon for reservoir engineering studies. This article discusses some of the questions raised by the introduction of these geological models, and a methodology is proposed to account for the heterogeneities in the reservoir production, based on a specific software. A link between the detailed reservoir images generated by the probabilistic geological models, and the well-known flow simulators is established through the selection of these images, and the averaging of the petrophysical data. -from Authors
