Production History Match optimization requires a good consistency between geological static model and reservoir model. This is the case when the wells that have been identified as connected from dynamic synthesis are really connected in the model.
Connectivity Analysis is a way to QC a static model and to check its consistency with dynamic data at a very early stage. It allows identifying potential issues before starting time consuming flow simulations. It facilitates communication between geomodelers and reservoir engineers, by defining and quantifying the impact of geological parameters on wells connection.
Connectivity Analysis also provides some solutions to fix geological model inconsistencies and to ensure that the static model honors connectivity information.
