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.
