In person @ the NPD: Experience Sharing: Assisted History Matching & Ensemble Modelling


The Force Integrated Reservoir Modelling work group is happy to invite you to a 2 day seminar where Norwegian based Oil and Gas companies will share their highs and lows in applying the practice of Ensemble Modelling and Assisted History Matching. In addition, time will be given to open discussions, especially covering the current technical challenges and how these might be overcome.
