This paper is based on the central themes that computational aids in reservoir history matching are best used in conjunction with engineering experience, and that these powerful resources should complement each other. We consider one system which seeks to exploit the potential for interaction between one algorithm for history matching, and input available from a reservoir engineer’s assessment of a study.

The discussion is illustrated with examples which show that this interaction can result in history matches acceptable in engineering terms, and produced with relatively efficient use of all resources.
