    • Conclusions • A small ensemble of realizations can't be representative of the full probability density function. • The use of perturbed observations is important in the EnKF to estimate the analysis-error covariances. • The choice of the initial ensemble must be adequate in order to have accurate predictions. • It is necessary to allow the updating of other variables than porosity and permeability fields in the assimilation using EnKF. E&P Seminar 2006 - 34 -
    • Suggestions for Further Work More applications (synthetic and real) to investigate: • The impact of the lack of observations on the robustness of the algorithm; • Non-Gaussian distributions; • The minimum number of realizations needed to reliably represent the uncertainty of the model.
