Reservoir production data, such as well phase rates and bottom-hole pressures (BHPs), are an important source of information that can be used to update the existing reservoir model and to reduce uncertainty in modeling the future reservoir behavior. History matching is a commonly employed name for this type of inverse problems of updating the reservoir model parameters to match the available measurements. Pursuing my current research goals I am developing a history matching algorithm which consists of detailed reservoir simulation, an adjoint gradient-based minimization of the production data mismatch with predictions, and some regularization techniques based on prior knowledge of main geological features of the reservoir structure.
