Reservoir characterization is one of the most important tasks that determines the recovery plan for

a specific reservoir. This process incorporates a significant amount of data acquisition and processing to finally develop an acceptable model that matches the production history and can forecast

the future production behavior. The model also should be able to adapt to changes along the way:

adding or removing producers or injectors, changing the injection pattern, recompletions and converting wells are all examples of possible changes that are common in the oil and gas industry.

Usually these changes are modeled by running field-scale simulations and providing the model

with the daily data from the field to keep the model up to date and to reduce prediction errors.
