EAGE/TNO Workshop on OLYMPUS Field Development Optimization

7 - 7 September
Barcelona, Spain
Call for papers

This interactive workshop brought together experts on field development optimization methods to evaluate and demonstrate the potential of state-of-the-art optimization under uncertainty  to industry, research organizations and academia. Together with the partners in the ISAPP2 research consortium, TNO developed and launched the OLYMPUS Field Development Optimization Challenge in early 2017. This challenge consisted of 3 exercises on optimization under uncertainty. 

Many organizations started working on the dataset and exercises defined. This one-day workshop provided the platform for all participants to present and discuss their results. 

All further background on the challenge and the dataset consisting of reservoir models is found via www.isapp2.com/optimization-challenge.

More information regarding the event can be found in the Final Announcement and Programme.

Every two years, the European Conference on the Mathematics of Oil Recovery (ECMOR) gathers applied mathematicians and geoscience engineers from both academia and industry to focus on recent advances in geological and reservoir modelling. The ECMOR conferences started in Cambridge over 3 decades ago and through a sequence of meetings in major European centres, continue a tradition of combining high-quality mathematical science with engineering applications. Researchers and engineers from industry, government and academia meet in an informal atmosphere to focus on key technical and mathematical challenges facing the oil industry. 

In 2020, ECMOR XVII will take place in Edinburgh from 7-10 September.
