A complete guide to statistics for petroleum industry professionals who develop and use reservoir models for fluid flow. This book will help petroleum professionals develop more accurate models, leading to lower sampling costs. It starts with a detailed description of methods for exploring the statistical and geological relationships of data, including histograms, averages, confidence intervals, and measures of variability. Next, the book presents procedures for producing flow models. Linear regression, Kriging, simulated annealing, and other methods are described. The last chapter covers a variety of geological environments, presenting case studies, and shows how the statistical procedures discussed can be used to develop reliable flow models. This is an ideal book for petroleum engineers, geoscientists, hydrologists, and faculty and students in these and related fields.
