Optimal well-placement using probabilistic learning


A new method based on manifold sampling is presented for formulating and solving the optimal well-placement problem in an uncertain reservoir. The method addresses the compounded computational challenge associated with statistical sampling at each iteration of the optimization process. An estimation of the joint probability density function between well locations and production levels is achieved using a small number of expensive function calls to a reservoir simulator. Additional realizations of production levels, conditioned on well locations and required for evaluating the probabilistic objective function, are then obtained by sampling this jpdf without recourse to the reservoir simulator
