MEPO Advanced

The course covers several advanced topics including a new history-conditioned forecasting workflow, proxy modeling techniques, and integrated modeling approaches using the MEPO plugin to Petrel.

The history-conditioned forecasting workflow was introduced with MEPO 4.2 and uses a Markov Chain Monte Carlo approach for estimating prediction uncertainties.

Proxy modeling methods can be useful for exploring the impact of different sets of input parameters before launching full field simulations. In this course we will introduce different proxy modeling techniques and discuss the performance potential in complex simulation studies.

Integrated modeling workflows are becoming more widely used, so this course also covers the use of the MEPO plugin to Petrel which extends the capability of MEPO to incorporate static models in optimization and uncertainty workflows.

  • Location


    Doha, located on the Persian Gulf, is the capital city of the state of Qatar.


    Doha is home to a number of sports stadiums, many of which were renovated in preparation for the 15th Asian Games, held in December 2006. Doha also hosted the 3rd West Asian Games in December 2005. Doha is also expected to host the 2011 Asian Indoor Games; Doha will also host the finals for the 2011 AFC Asian Cup. Qatar is aiming to be the region's sports capital.

    Doha International Airport is Qatar's only international airport. It is the hub of Qatar Airways, and is served by many other international airlines.
