The different mechanisms for the recovery of hydrocarbons from reservoirs has usually been divided into three types: primary, secondary and tertiary recovery mechanisms. Although this nomenclature suggests a chronological order among these stages, their application is subject to the specific characteristics of the reservoir and to the field production strategy. However, primary recovery is generally..
Reservoir simulation involves the mathematical manipulation of a significant amount of information, most of which is subject to uncertainties due to factors such as insufficient measurements, lack of accuracy and spatial heterogeneities, as previously discussed. Consequently, it is imperative to quantify the impact of these parameters’ variations on the simulation workflows (modeling, analysis and..
