Abstract

This paper considers the new field of goal programming under a preemptive priority structure. The goal programming model presented was constructed as a practical optimization technique applied to the history matching of actual petroleum reservoir performance. The results showed that this technique is a powerful tool for optimizing the differences between the actual and predicted performance of those reservoirs. Therefore, any numerical petroleum reservoir simulator can be employed for studying actual cases of oilfields.
