• Efficient flow diagnostics proxies for polymer flooding 

      Krogstad, Stein; Lie, Knut-Andreas; Nilsen, Halvor Møll; Berg, Carl Fredrik; Kippe, Vegard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Flow diagnostics refers to a family of numerical methods that within a few seconds can compute visually intuitive quantities illuminating flow patterns and well connections for full 3D reservoir models. The starting point ...
    • Gradient-based production optimization with simulation-based economic constraints 

      Volkov, Oleg; Bellout, Mathias (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In reservoir management, production optimization is performed using gradient-based algorithms that commonly rely on an adjoint formulation to efficiently compute control gradients. Often, however, economic constraints are ...
    • Joint Optimization of Oil Well Placement and Controls 

      Bellout, Mathias Rodrigez; Ciaurri, David Echeverria; Durlofsky, Louis J.; Foss, Bjarne Anton; Kleppe, Jon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Well placement and control optimization in oil field development are commonly performed in a sequential manner. In this work, we propose a joint approach that embeds well control optimization within the search for optimum ...
