The objectives were to perform a field study to:

  1. Evaluate geostatistical techniques to integrate data.

  2. Compare reservoir descriptions with and without crosswell tomography data integrated.

  3. Determine if reservoir descriptions constrained by synthetic crosswell tomography data reduce uncertainty, compared to reservoir descriptions not constrained by synthetic tomography data. (i.e., Can the uncertainty in reservoir performance be reduced measurably if cross well tomography is acquired and used as additional data to constrain geostatistical reservoir descriptions?)

  4. Compare geostatistical to conventional reservoir descriptions.

  5. Assess uncertainty of reservoir performance (cumulative oil production, oil production rate, and water-oil ratio) for primary, secondary and tertiary production.
