Abstract

Matching procedures are often used in reservoir production to improve geological models. In reservoir engineering, history matching leads to update petrophysical parameters in fluid flow simulators to fit the results of the calculations with observed data. In the same line, seismic parameters are inverted to allow the numerical recovery of seismic acquisitions. But these inversion processes are made separately and are poorly constrained. The idea of this original work is to simultaneous match both the permeability and the acoustical impedance of the reservoir for an enhancement of the resulting geological model. Comparison of the coupled matching with the two separated conventional ones realized on a 3D case demonstrates the practical efficiency of our method. This work is an important step in a way of data integration. It allows to use simultaneously the available hard and soft data, as the knowledge of the depositional environment, seismic, and/or dynamic information.
