Norne Benchmark

The Norne field case will provide users with a benchmark case based on real data. Hence, this will be an extension to current benchmark cases which are all based on synthetic data. The purpose is to establish this case as a key benchmark for the petroleum industries. It will be used to evaluate and compare mathematical methods for history matching and closed-loop reservoir management. The benchmark will be hosted and supported by the IO center at NTNU. It is accessible for petroleum research and education in universities in particular related to developments in the area of Integrated Operations (aka Smart Fields, Fields for the Future, Digital Oil Fields, eFields). The Norne field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf is operated by Statoil, a partner of the IO center. The data has kindly been made available by Statoil and license partners.
