Computational Issues in Geostatistical Simulation for Petroleum Reservoir Characterization

Geostatistical simulation techniques are becoming widely used throughout the petroleum industry as a means of effectively enhancing reservoir description. As the demand for finer-scaled characterization increases, and as new algortihms are developed to satisfy that demand, an ongoing challenge is to provide the computational capabilities and resources necessary to produce realistic solutions. The objective of this minisymposium is to present some of the most current thinking and research in geostatistical computing, to describe recent developments in geostatistical simulation methodology, and to showcase novel applications in petroleum reservoir characterization, with emphasis on computational solutions.
