ABSTRACT

Determining the optimal location of wells with the aid of an automated search method
can significantly increase a project’s net present value as modeled in a reservoir
simulator. This work addresses the efficient solution of this problem by using advanced
techniques for coupling two important components of autonomic optimization:
Dynamic model using Eclipse simulator software (E100), an optimization technique
based on the genetic algorithm (GA). Profits and costs during the time period of the
project were taken into consideration.
