This last chapter on engineers and geomodeling focuses on production engineers. More precisely, it focuses on production data and production engineers.
Indeed, the first section try to answer one question: why is it so hard to constrain a geomodel to production data? That section can be seen like an extension of the topics covered in the chapter 7 on reservoir engineers and geomodeling.
The second part of this chapter investigates various aspects of geomechanics: restoring geomodels, modeling the geomechanical properties of the rocks, capturing the team understanding about natural fractures and at last, feeding input to fracture modeling.
