An upgridding technique for geocellular models, taking into account the uncertainty of reservoir parameters. (English) Zbl 1450.86002
Summary: A technique is proposed for upgridding of a geological model, taking into account the uncertainty of reservoir parameters. A distinctive feature of this technique is that the calculation of the upscaling error is based on the solution of two-phase flow equations.
