Reservoir simulation

This paper describes a novel distributed quasi-Newton derivative-free optimization method for reservoir-performance-optimization problems.
The complete paper builds on existing tools in the literature to quantify the effect of changing well spacing on well productivity for a given completion design, using a new, simple, intuitive empirical equation.
The paper describes an approach to history matching and forecasting that does not require a reservoir simulation model, is data driven, and includes a physics model based on material balance.
