GM11: Uncertainty in Geomodelling

Back to training catalogue

Uncertainty in Geomodelling Level: Advanced Duration: 2 days

Next scheduling:

- 3-4 October 2016, Kuala Lumpur, 4000 MYR


About this course:

In Geomodelling, dealing with Uncertainty is unavoidable and is mostly the result of two inherent limitations: lack of knowledge (what we know we do not know) and lack of predictability (what we do not know we do not know). As robust a Geomodel can be, it is invariably a single solution within the spectrum of possible realizations. By focusing on the envelope delimited by the Uncertainty space rather than a unique solution, the Geomodeller can build meaningful and usable Geomodels to support the business decision.

The GM11 course demonstrates how to perform a solid Geomodelling exercise that includes the Uncertainty element in the equation. The GM11 course mixes theories and practical sessions.

Under its current format, the GM11 course is tailored for a Petrel Geomodelling platform.

Attendees are encouraged to bring along their workstation and Petrel Licenses if they wish to use their own dataset during the course.

What to expect from the course:

- Understand the importance of Uncertainty assessment and quantification when building Geomodels

- Awareness on sensitivity analysis workflow, how to perform it and exploit the derived learning

- Awareness on the uncertainty analysis workflow, how to perform it and use the results


Who should attend:

-  Development Geoscientists / Geomodellers who are performing Geomodelling tasks to support business decisions



Solid grounding on the Geomodelling workflow, attending GM01 or GM10 courses would be highly favorable


Course outline:

Day 1 Morning:  Welcome note, Part 1: Introduction, Part 2: Uncertainty assessment and quantification

Day 1 Afternoon: Part 3: Sensitivity Analysis

Day 2 Morning: Summarize Day 1, Part 4: Probabilistic realizations

Day 2 Afternoon: Part 5: Closing the loop: beyond the Uncertainty assessment, Summary of course, Closing note
