Field development optimization in heterogeneous reservoirs to maximize cumulative oil production or net present value (NPV) is a challenging reservoir management problem. The problem gets computationally more expensive by including subsurface geological uncertainty because to represent subsurface geological uncertainty many geological realizations are considered. After developing systematic and efficient framework, we can apply it to other problems such as optimization of field development in shale gas and CO2 sequestration problems. Therefore, in our research project the main focus is on the further development of a method for Field development optimization under geological uncertainty.
