Figure 2. Model development, calibration, and prediction. The StatOil benchmark geomodel (top left) is used as a basis for Indiana University’s model calibration (right). 4D seismic and well data are also used as part of the model calibration. The calibrated model produced plume history that match with seismic data from 1999 to 2008 at Sleipner, and predicted plume size and location in 2010 (bottom left), for which data were not released at the time of model calibration.
